Help with difficult times

One off consultations

“I don’t need therapy. I need someone to talk to.”

I offer one off consultations in person or online to assist with a range of situations, when you may not need or are unable to commit to short or longer term support.

If you are interested in one off email support, then look here.

1. Such sessions can be an opportunity to

  • sense-check decisions you have to take;
  • get some motivation or comfort ahead of an important or difficult meeting;
  • identify tools and strategies to support you through a particular phase or time in your life;
  • get something off your chest.

Instead of me solving the problem for you, the aim is to help you find an answer and approach that works for you.

2. I specialise in one off support for the following areas:

Bereavement and Grief

A consultation can assist ahead of attending a funeral, grief anniversaries, memorial services, or if you wish to have your own special moment of grief support.

Life-changing illness or events

Whether you are the one with the diagnosis, a relative or friend, a session with someone independent can assist in processing difficult news or decisions. It can help you in exploring plans and support, that may be needed to cope with the situation as best as possible.

Other life changes

You may be considering changes of your own or are facing changes that are not of your choice – in the private, working or other areas of your life. You may have some ideas and need the last bit of courage to make them happen. Or you are starting with an empty sheet and want to start exploring your options.

Creative blocks

These can happen to us all at any time. A consultation can assist you in identifying the nature and cause of the block, and explore useful changes to help you reconnect with your creativity.

To get something off your chest

Sometimes we are burdened by things we did or did not do. Talking about it can be a release and may help you to move on.

Anything else?

If there is anything that you would consider seeking a one off consultation for, then feel free to contact me in confidence.

3. Areas unsuitable for one off support

Clearly, this service does not work for every problem. It is not a quick fix for issues which require and deserve more time. Neither are these sessions a substitute for medical advice.

Please note that I do not offer one off consultations for support with addictions, self harm, feeling suicidal, or serious and long-term mental health issues. In any of such cases please consult a medical professional or crisis support like the Samaritans in the UK and ROI.

4. Fees

The fee for one off consultations, in person or online, is £195 and payable online ahead of the session. This includes

  • 2 hour meeting.
  • Me reading and processing a summary of your situation, which you are welcome to send in ahead of our meeting.
  • 30 minute follow up call.

Depending on your requirements we may choose to schedule an additional catch up session (£75 for 50 minutes).

5. To book a session

Email me in confidence, putting “one off session” in the subject heading, and outline very briefly for which area you would like support. I tend to offer these sessions on Fridays or Saturdays 1200-1400 (UK time). Please use the contact form here.
