Counselling and Psychotherapy at Salomons Estate in Tunbridge Wells

What to expect in Counselling

After you have contacted me, I offer a free fifteen-minute phone consultation to discuss your needs.

If you feel comfortable talking with me and you would like to proceed, we can arrange to meet in person to talk in greater depth.

Our first session will enable us to get a fuller sense of each other. I will guide our conversation, asking you about yourself and the circumstances which have brought you to seek counselling.

Many people feel anxious about this first session, and this is a completely natural reaction to something unknown.

I’ll explain everything as we go along and give you time to ask any questions you may have. You can tell me as much or as little as you feel comfortable with, I understand that it may take you time to feel at ease and safe enough to trust me. I will honour you for who you are and take things at a pace which feels right for you.

There is no obligation to commit to further sessions, but if you decide that you would like to go ahead, we can discuss whether short (8-12 weeks) or long-term work would be best and agree a time and day for weekly sessions.

Counselling sessions are 50 minutes long and take place in my counselling room at Salomons Estate. If you would like to work on the phone or online please let me know and we can chat about these options.

We will regularly review the progress of the work and can continue to work together until you feel ready to finish.
