I am in my mid 40's now and became interested in counselling and psychotherapy when I went through a difficult life experience. I found the therapy process not only to be comforting and supportive during this time, but unexpectedly gave me choices and insight about myself that led my friends to comment on the positive changes they saw in me and how I began to live my life. Therapy for me was insightful, affirming, challenging and often fun.
After we have had a short chat on the phone I agree an appointment time for us to meet in which you can talk more openly in a safe and comfortable place about what has brought you to therapy, why now and what you want to change in your life.
Don't worry if you are not too clear about this initially, talking about how you feel and think will often give you more clarity about what you want to achieve.
During this session, if you feel comfortable, we will agree to a further 4 sessions, or if you are not sure, maybe you would like to have a look at a few other therapists before you decide. I am always happy to refer. Sessions cost £48 for 60minutes and £50 after 6pm for an individual or £72 for a couple for 90 minutes or £75 after 6pm.
I am able to offer clients that have had a minimum of four sessions with me at The Hale Village Therapy Centre the option to continue therapy via Skype video link. This can be as an alternative or additional to face to face sessions at The Centre, or to be used when you cannot get to The Centre due to work or holiday commitments.
My practice hours are:
Tuesday to Thursday from 8.45am until 8pm.
Signature Therapy for Counselling and Psychotherapy can be found at The Hale Village Therapy Centre south manchester, conveniently located next to a large car park, which is behind the main shopping street of Ashley Road, Hale, Altrincham, Cheshire.
The entrance to the centre is visible from the main car park and is discreetly not on the main street.
Hale Village is well served by trains and buses from the surrounding areas of Wilmslow and Altrincham, south Manchester.
Much care and thought has been given to those visiting the centre from its discreet entrance to the relaxed ambiance created in the reception area and therapy rooms. Seating is comfortable and the environment is quiet, warm and calming.
