How to book
It's best to call me with your diary at hand. I can book sessions via email or text, sometimes clients are disappointed that an array of appointments offered have all been booked up by the time they can reply.
If you are booking for a couple please consult your partner first; sometimes people think that the existence of an appointment will persuade an unwilling partner to attend - the reality is that it doesn't.
Payment is needed to secure the booking within 24 hours of making the booking. If something goes wrong with this, please phone me urgently. I'm no longer taking payments over the phone, you can pay to my bank account or via PayPal.
Once paid, you can have a refund with a full 48 hours notice before the session, this gives me time to rearrange my diary.
I will send you a comprehensive email with everything you need to know to attend the session.

My office in Horbury, Wakefield, attracts clients from the whole of Yorkshire and beyond
I know from my life experience what it's like to experience stress and setbacks in life and how much counselling can help to deal with the emotional pain and move forward feeling restored and safer in the world. Some extra insight into how we create our life, some sense of sorting things out, some empowerment to make positive changes for ourselves, is useful for many people at different stages in their life.
My therapy is tailored to you and your needs, every person has different challenges.
> counselling for individuals and couples - without a restrictive contract on attendance, we agree how it will work. I usually see clients weekly, this may not be possible for everyone, some clients want fortnightly appointments, especially if they are travelling a long way.
> if you are in a couple and your partner does not want to attend then its ok to come alone and have support for yourself.
> one off support sessions
I aim to provide an initial session of counselling wihin ten working days, if you are flexible on times, and ongoing sessions within another week or so for daytime appointments, evening sessions may be a couple of weeks. You are in charge of when you attend, it doesn't have to be the same time each week, or even every week. You can also take a mix of office and video appointments to suit you.
After your initial session you may want to take some time to consider your next step, it is not necessary to make another booking straight away, you may need time to think about taking the next step to make the changes you want to make.
Sessions are during the morning and early afternoon, and the evening, Further details on the calendar page click here
