step 1 getting started in counselling

the best way is to send me an email to hello@empathyoffered.com or send a text message to (+44) 01937 363007. Or you can send me a message below. If you write a short description of what you are looking for and the issues you are facing, that would be helpful.

step 2 getting started in counselling

It may be sooner if I can. I do answer all messages. If I do not reply immediately it is most likely I am with clients. I understand when you are facing distress or pain you may need to speak to someone quickly or be acknowledged at least. Therefore I ensure I answer all messages as soon as I can.

step 3 getting started in counselling

The assessment is a getting to know each other session. You will share with me what you hope to achieve from therapy. We shall also go over the contract - your and my expectations of therapy. It gives you a chance to ask any questions about therapy and me to assess whether I am the right person to help you. You can book it right here online below.
