Diversity and access

I welcome clients of any gender, race, ethnic background, sexuality or social class and understand that there may be issues specific to ones background that may require sensitivity to your experience. I have worked in many countries and have wide interests in other cultures. I also have many years experience of working with people with learning disabilities and Autistic Spectrum Conditions, to help them to express themselves and to take control of their life choices.

I aim to support diverse beliefs or lifestyles and would like, where possible, to support people from challenging backgrounds to assert their rights and achieve their goals.

I also can offer a limited number of clients a reduced price or variable fee to support those with limited means of income. Please feel free to ask.

Parents and carers can also benefit from counselling or therapy with someone who understands these pressures and stresses.

(I work from Todmorden – not currently wheelchair accessible) and Hebden Bridge (wheelchair accessible).

Fees and discounts

I charge £40 per session in 2018.

Concessions and reductions are possible by agreement. Feel free to ask.

A session is about 50 minutes, but not more than an hour.

I ask that a client pay one session in advance.  Excepting emergencies, 48 hours notice is required to cancel an arranged session. Clients are charged for sessions that they fail to attend or cancel without sufficient notice.

For information on the cost of my workshops please use the enquiry form and give a brief outline of your organisation or event.
