How do I make an appointment?

       Save it as a document and email it to me as an attachment to joan@leatown.co.uk

  • Or fill out my online enquiry form - You do not need to fill out the enquiry form if you are self-referring


Next steps

Following the receipt of the self referral form and stress questionnaire:-

  1. I will contact you by telephone to make an appointment for an assessment session.

  2. Please indicate when you email me when you will be available to receive a phone call.

Assessment session

The first session is an opportunity for us to explore whether the stress management and/or counselling I offer is appropriate for you and to allow you to make an informed decision about whether or not you want to embark on further sessions with me. Attendance at the first session does not commit either of us to further sessions.

Number of sessions

This is something that I would expect to negotiate with you at the initial assessment session and on a session by session basis.

Regularity of sessions

Ideally counselling should take place on a weekly basis, particularly in the early stages, so that information and insights gained in one session are still fresh in your mind at the next session. However, if that is difficult for you we can meet less frequently.
