What Is Counselling
Counselling is a special relationship in which you have someone to talk to whom you can trust, who does not make judgement and who will try to understand feelings and experience.
Counselling is a form of guidance that provides receivers with insight, direction and advice about events and decisions.
It offers a confidential space to explore and express aspects of the self which may be uncomfortable, painful, overwhelming or embarrassing.
Counselling is available to a range of people and enables them to deal with a variety of issues.

The First Step & What will Happen
Upon contacting, HT Therapy, you will be able to talk to a counsellor and discuss your concerns and see whether or not counselling would be helpful for you and appropriate for your needs.
If you decide you would like to meet with a counsellor, you can telephone us and we will do our best to arrange an appointment that is suitable to both parties.
If you feel that counselling is appropriate for your needs you would be offered a weekly 60 minute session.
On contacting HT Therapy, you will normally be offered an initial assessment session. This session also enables the counsellor to assess if counselling is appropriate for your needs
Thereafter you would be offered a weekly 60 minute session for 12 weeks.

I work on a sliding scale as it is important that the fees are affordable to you, so that you may continue with your sessions. It is important to me that the clients are making progress, this will only happen if sessions are continued with on a weekly base to start.
