What to expect


I am currently counselling in South Croydon at the Harvest Centre.

The first session I offer is an introductory session which includes an assessment and the opportunity to find out how we might work together. The assessment session and all subsequent sessions are 50 minutes long.

For some individuals or couples just a few sessions may be enough; most people will require a little longer. I offer open-ended counselling where from time to time we review together where you believe you are in the process; beginning, middle or end.

If you feel you are approaching the end of counselling, it’s usually helpful to agree together how many more sessions you would like to have, so that we can work towards a good ending (or a “soft landing”!). Generally, the longer you’ve been in therapy, the longer it’s helpful to give to this stage.


Tuesdays to Fridays, plus Saturday mornings.
