Making an Appointment

Contacting a therapist and seeking help for the first time can be a difficult experience. To make this process easier you can get in touch with me by either phone or email, whichever you feel more comfortable with.

To arrange an initial appointment please call 01844 355585. If I am unavailable please leave a message and I will return your call as soon as possible. If you are not available, any message I leave will be discreet.

When you first contact me, it is helpful if we have a free short telephone conversation (around 10-15 minutes) so that we can talk through what has brought you to therapy, and how it may be able to help you. Following this, if you feel comfortable to proceed, we will make an appointment for an initial assessment session where we can discuss your difficulties in more detail. The assessment session is an opportunity to for us both to explore the issues that may be troubling you, and how they are impacting your life and wellbeing. It is also a good opportunity to express any concerns, or ask any questions that you may have about therapy. At the end of the assessment, I will share with you my understanding of what we have discussed, and what may be the appropriate therapeutic way forward.

If you prefer, you can e-mail me at Simon@ChilternPsychologicalServices.co.uk
