Your First Visit


Welcome, I make sure all my new and existing clients feel welcome, safe, and taken care of.

The process  is super simple.

You can contact me or Equilibrium on 01283 480555 to book an appointment. We will find a time that is suitable for us to meet. If you would like a free 20 minute consultation please let me or the receptionist know when enquiring.

During your visit at Equilibrium, a receptionist will welcome you and show you to the waiting room. There is water available to drink and toilet facilities.

At the allocated time I will come and greet you.

Please note the room I use is upstairs. If you could let me or the receptionist know at the time of booking whether you have mobility problems and we will do our best to accommodate you in one of the ground floor rooms.

From there we will have 50 minutes per session to talk about and focus on what has brought you to seek help. We will then work together to help improve your happiness and wellbeing.


How much will it cost?

Initial Consultation is free.
Counselling and CBT £45.00 per session.
Couples Counselling £60.00 per session.
Hypnotherapy £55.00 per session. 
Confidence Coaching £85.00 per session, every two weeks, with e-mail support in between sessions.

Payment is usually taken at the end of each session by card machine or by cash, depending on which method you prefer.


What happens in an Initial Consultation?

Initial consultation last for 15 minutes and is where you can tell me what you would like help with. We can also discuss any questions you may have and decide on what you would like to focus on. This is not a therapy/coaching session, more a conversation between two people to make sure you are happy to go ahead with me as your therapist.


What happens in a therapy session?

During this time we will work together to understand what the problems are and develop new strategies for tackling them. People know what they don't want - anxiety, panic, anger, depression etc. - but don't always know what they do want instead, and part of therapy is to figure this out and work towards it. These sessions are normally 50 minutes each week or two weeks.


How many sessions will I need?

Most clients achieve their therapy goals in just 4-12 sessions. For others a longer term approach may be more appropriate.


Cancellation Policy

I understand that sometimes the unexpected happens and you cannot keep your appointment, but please note my cancellation policy below:

  • Cancellations with 48 hours’ notice will not incur any cancellation charge.

  • Cancellations with between 24 and 48 hours’ notice may incur a charge of up to 50% of the normal charges.

  • Cancellations with less than 24 hours’ notice may incur a charge of up to 100% of the normal charges.

If you are running late, please contact Equilbrium us if it is safe to do so.  We may be able to alter scheduling to accommodate you.  Late arrival may unfortunately reduce your treatment time.


Can I stop anytime?

Simply, yes. At the end of each session I will ask you 'Will it be helpful to book another session?' and you can decide from there.

However, endings of therapy are just as important as starting as this is where we will discuss how to maintain the changes you have been working towards without my support. So a session around  this is very helpful.
