The idea of counselling can be a little intimidating at first. There are a number of different counselling approaches and you need to be sure that the approach on offer – person-centred therapy – is the right one for you. You also need to decide if counselling is right for you at this time – and you need to be satisfied that I am the right counsellor for you.

To help you make an informed decision, I offer a no obligation, 15 minute telephone consultation, free of charge. I can explain about the counselling process, what you can expect from person-centred therapy, and also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

If you decide you would like to work with me (and you don’t have to make a decision right there and then), we will arrange a mutually convenient time for your first session. Sessions via phone, online or face to face last up to one hour and for individual clients cost £40, payable by cash or bank transfer. I also offer Couples and Relationship Counselling at £55 per session, available at the Netherton practice only. 

In certain circumstances, I may also be able to offer home visits. The cost per hourly session starts at £45, with the rate calculated according to the distance from my practice, and is payable in advance by bank transfer.

My practice is based on the first floor of Netherton Feelgood Factory, Glovers Lane, Netherton, Merseyside, L30 5QW. The building has a lift, and so is easily accessible for those who may have mobility issues. 

There are free car parking facilities nearby, a taxi rank outside the building, and we are also served by bus routes 52, 52A, 56, 58, 63 and 159.

Counselling helped me re-direct my focus. It helped me realise that things were weighing my down and gave me the strength to do something about it”
