* The full fee is usually payable if you do not attend, or cancel within 24 hours of, your appointment.

Additional fees may apply. For example, a comprehensive strengths profile assessment costs £36.

Choosing to face important issues and take steps towards greater wellbeing usually takes time, resources and a rebalancing of priorities. If your financial situation is genuinely a challenge I ask you to wait for six sessions before exploring the possibility of modest fee reduction for counselling or careers guidance. If considering an AT course, it is important to commit to learn the whole package so I request you pay the full fee in advance but only after you’ve had an opportunity to find out what you’d be letting yourself in for! Eastleigh College students completing Gestalt counselling training may access half price appointments. If you, or other people you know, are really struggling financially, I recommend the Olive Branch in Winchester for counselling and Springboard in Chandlers Ford for careers guidance.

‘Where and when could we meet?’

Monday: Evening

Please contact me to check current availability.

‘And if we meet?’
Your first appointment is an opportunity to talk about what brings you here and for both of us to consider if and how we could work well together. We may get stuck into issues in your first appointment if you come for careers guidance. During your initial assessment and ongoing check ins, I may use straightforward evaluation methods to help us clarify your needs and goals and how best to respond to them.

I see most people once every week at the same time on the same day. I may offer counselling once a fortnight, especially if we agree to have 90 minute appointments.

If you think counselling will be our main focus, Ask Kathleen gives more advice on what to expect.

I treat all enquiries as private and confidential within professional association guidelines.

‘I’m really struggling!’
If you're very concerned about your mental health, I recommend that you speak with your GP as soon as possible even if you're actively reaching out to counsellors, psychotherapists or other helping professionals.

Please call NHS 111 or the Samaritans on 116 123 any time of the day or night if you are experiencing unbearable emotional pain.
