Counselling and Coaching sessions are 50 minutes, however some coaching sessions may require longer.
Sessions will be face to face, held at the same time and location every week.
I offer both long term and short term contracts. Together we can discuss a length of time that will be suitable for you, and review it throughout. I typically advise that sessions are weekly however once we have worked together, fortnightly and monthly sessions are also an available option. I also offer Skype sessions if required.
Its important for you to feel comfortable with your counsellor. The relationship between you is considered one of the most important elements. The initial session is a great chance for us to meet and discuss how we can work together. With your permission, we will gently explore what has brought you to seek counselling/coaching at this point in your life, your expectations of the therapeutic process and how we can best work together. There is no obligation to commit to anything following this.

What is Personal Consultancy?
Personal Consultancy is a framework used to integrate Counselling and Coaching. At times we may wish to explore, heal and connect with our past experiences, underlying issues and inner conflicts in order to live a more meaningful life (Counselling), whilst at other times our focus turns to developing our strengths and achieving our goals, desires and dreams for the future (Coaching).
