Contact Barbara by email or phone 01539 728575. There is an answerphone for messages. Barbara aims to reply within 48 hours, and to agree an appointment time within ten days.

For individual counselling you may choose to arrange a prompt initial full hour appointment at a charge of £45. That will provide an opportunity for you and Barbara to meet, and for you to outline the issues you want to work on.  Barbara will try to answer any questions you may have about counselling.  The blog written in Jan 2012 describes that first meeting.

It is important for you to feel comfortable with your choice of counsellor. If you decide that you can work together, a mutually convenient regular time can be arranged.

Barbara offers both day and evening appointments with some flexibility for shift workers. It might also be possible to arrange sessions by telephone.

The fee for hourly sessions is £45 for individual clients.  Supervision is charged at £60 for 1.5 hours.
Counselling takes place in a peaceful upstairs room near the centre of Kendal. You can park on the driveway outside the house. Kendal bus and rail stations are within a few minutes’ walk.
