Areas of Counselling I Work With
I work with a wide variety of issues and with whatever you wish to bring to the sessions.Examples include:
Payments at the first session are taken during the session. There is no obligation to continue. If you wish to proceed, payments are taken in advance to insure the booking of your next session. Payments can be made by cash, cheque or online.
There is no obligation to how many sessions you wish to have.
Sessions are normally weekly but this is negotiable.
I work with individuals from 13 years upwards.
Therapy is 1:1 and face to face in a small therapy room setting.
