Please allow at least 60mins for a session. It’s a good idea to think about what you would like to talk about with your counsellor before you attend your appointment.

There are also benefits to being able to gift yourself a little time after the session to process your experience by not heading straight back into your busy day.

Introductory 20 minute appointments are available. At the end of the session it’s your choice to commit to further sessions with your counsellor by making a booking for ongoing support.
