Grove Counselling

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Introduction


The overall aim of counselling and psychotherapy is to provide a safe, non-judgemental environment that gives you the opportunity to explore and examine your difficult feelings and problematic issues that are causing you pain or making you feel uncomfortable.

It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears in confidentiality without feeling judged or worried that you are burdening someone with your problems. The new insight which you gain through counselling/psychotherapy can help you to let go off patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that may have sustained you in the past, but now cause you difficulties.


Change

For the change to happen, it is vital to have a sense of safety and to feel comfortable. It is essential that you find a counsellor with whom you get on. Usually you know in the first meeting whether you’ll be able to work with your counsellor or not.


Sessions

Sessions are 50 minutes long, and take place once weekly in my Harpenden practice.
Depending on your needs, I offer short, or long term counselling/psychotherapy at daytimes and evenings. There are also some weekend appointments.


Fees

My fee is £50 per session.


Cancellations

If you are unable to attend a session please let me know at least 48 hours in advance. If it is possible to re-schedule the session for a time that is convenient for both of us, I will endeavour to do so. If not, the fee for the missed session is payable.
