How it would work

If you’re interested to take the next step then please make contact either:

  • by phoning 07800 640620 (if I can’t answer right then you can leave a message confidentially and I’ll get back asap) or
  • by filling in the Contact Form on this website (put as little or as much as you wish on here, but do add either email or phone, whichever you’d prefer me to get back to you on. Or
  • send me an email at info@shadowplaycounselling.co.uk
  • Either way we’ll  arrange a time convenient for you to have a free telephone consultation of up to 30 minutes. This will be to make a brief assessment of what you might need, and for you to see if you think we could work well together.

Next we would book in a first session which would be up to an hour in  duration. At this session we would continue to explore how best we will work together to help solve the problem you’re facing. This session is a time for you to make sure you feel comfortable with the Counsellor. It’s really important that you do, or at least feel that you will be able to. Towards the end of this session, if you think you’d like to start Counselling sessions now we would go over the Agreement together, and book in the next session.

Counselling sessions are 50 minutes long and are ideally weekly at the same time.

Of course, with people’s busy schedules weekly isn’t always possible, so some people find it useful to book longer 90 minute sessions.

Counselling can be short term, usually around  6 to 12 sessions or much longer term, perhaps 12 months or more.

We would usually agree 6 sessions then have a review to see how things are working out for you (though of course you are free to end at any time).

How to make payment

Payment is requested beforehand in order to secure the booking and can be made by card,  bank transfer or paypal.
