I see young people from teenage onwards if they are open to the idea of counselling. One of the difficulties of working with this age group is that sometimes they can feel as if they are being 'sent' for counselling rather than choosing it for themselves. I offer the first session really for them to decide whether or not they would like to return, but it is important to the confidential nature of counselling that parents or carers do not pressure them for details of what they have discussed. That said, I do encourage young people to invite their parent or guardian into session when appropriate, but this can only be done if they agree.

Under 21's can benefit from my young persons rate, see below.
Sometimes one party in a couple can be reluctant to try counselling, as they fear it will be an opportunity for their partner to haul them across the coals for past misdeeds in front of a witness. This is simply not the case.
In couples work it is the relationship itself which becomes 'the client', and the process is to encourage better communication of wants and needs between the partners.
Cost of counselling for couples;
First assessment session (90 minutes duration) £60
Subsequent 60 minute sessions £50
Counselling students in training often have to undergo very lengthy periods of counselling themselves. For this reason they can benefit from my lower young persons rate, in addition to OAPs, the unemployed, university students and the very low waged.
Concessionary rate £30
4 prepaid sessions £110 (non-refundable)
At a point in my life when I felt so lost, I picked Sally to help me, and thats exactly what she has done and much more. Her natural ability to care and listen, coupled with her professional approach is exactly what I needed. I leave Sally knowing more about myself and others around me and the comfort that she is there for me. I thoroughly recommend Sally, her expertise and positive attitude.
At first I thought that I just attracted the wrong type of men. During my sessions with Sally I came to realise that I was a complete commitment-phobe, which was hard to take on. All my friends thought I knew already! It feels very different now with my new partner.
Thank you for everything you have done for me, it means so much. You were the first person to help me understand myself more. You've helped me to start to get back on track.
Sally is great at what 'age' does, she has real empathy and understanding. She really helped me to open up and connect with my feelings.
I struggle with depression, and after coming off my meds I needed to see someone. Sally was brilliant. She helped me look at deeper issues which I hadn't realised before.
