I understand the needs of staff working in a pressurised environment. As I am solely responsible for the counselling service there is no bureaucratic structure, which cuts out many of the high costs often associated with national counselling schemes. The result is a local, flexible service which meets the needs of businesses and organisations - at the right price.
Can I simply opt in and out of this service?
Yes, I have a simple, fixed charge per session. I do not ask you to sign an annual contract - you can simply call or email me and I will immediately arrange counselling for your staff.
Is counselling confidential?
Yes, in line with ethical requirements matters discussed in counselling will not be shared with an employer, so that employees feel able to talk freely.
Where will the counselling take place?
This is conducted at my consulting room in the heart of the City of London, just off Bishopsgate, two minutes walk from Liverpool Street station. The premises are modern and comfortable with air conditioning and a reception service during normal office hours.
Is Skype counselling offered?
Yes, this now enables counselling to be accessed remotely from anywhere in the world. This is particularly useful for staff who frequently travel for business or are not based in central London.
How quickly can an initial consultation be made?
The initial consultation can usually be booked within a few days.
How much does Corporate Counselling for individuals cost?
£70 daytime sessions (last appointment at 5pm)
£80 evening sessions (6pm, 7pm and 8pm)
How many sessions are required?
Usually six sessions are sufficient to resolve or significantly impact on many problems. This ensures that you know in advance the maximum cost of treatment. If a member of your staff requires more than six sessions they are welcome to continue with counselling by paying for it themselves.
My expertise lies in the areas of: anxiety, depression, anger, relationship difficulties, stress and low self-esteem.
