Beginning Counselling in Waterlooville.

So, you’re thinking about meeting with private counsellor Dean Richardson. How do you begin?

Firstly, consider these questions:

  1. Does Dean’s approach to counselling seem suitable for your needs?
  2. Are you available when Dean has appointments (see table) and can you attend your appointment on a weekly basis?
  3. Can you afford Dean’s counselling fees?

If you have answered “NO” or “probably not” to any question, then choosing Dean Richardson may not be the best approach for you. In this case, consider searching a reputable, on-line directory such as: Counselling Directory for alternatives.

If you have answered “YES” or “probably” to all three questions, then let’s continue…

STEP ONE: decide what sort of counselling that you might need.

Choose from:-

NB: It’s important to choose which form of counselling suits you best. Once you’ve begun, you may only change by moving to another counsellor.

STEP TWO: Note the weekly fee of the type of counselling you’re thinking about (fees are listed on this page).

STEP THREE: Note my available appointments. Choose one or more days-and-times that you could attend weekly.

STEP FOUR: contact me (using my online contact form).

STEP FIVE: if the appointment is still available, I’ll reserve it for us and ask you to send a £30 deposit (payable online, using this page) to confirm our first appointment. Otherwise, we’ll negotiate a different day and time.

Once you have paid your deposit, our appointment will be confirmed… and then we will meet.

Five easy steps to begin counselling.

NB: for subsequent sessions no deposit is required. I’ll talk with you about how your sessions fees are payable in full weekly.


NOTICE: Due to the sitation regarding the Coronavirus, I have suspended all face-to-face counselling sessions for the foreseeable future.

I am currently preparing to reintroduce my Skype Video-based Counselling Service (which I originally designed in the 2000s / basically I'm dotting the i's, crossing the t's now). Details of this will be available shortly.

Option 1: Skype/Video Counselling.

If you would like to begin counselling via Skype Video (within the next couple of weeks), please get in contact noting my current availability (below). I'll be in touch when I have appropriate procedures and advice in place.

Option 2: Face-to-Face Counselling.

If you would like to begin counselling face-to-face when the Government advises us that it has become safe for us to do so (current estimate: May 2020), please get in contact noting my current availability (below). I'll be in touch when I begin to resume my office practice.

Available Appointments:

  • Mondays: 7pm or 8pm.
  • Wednesdays: afternoons possibly, but not yet confirmed.
  • Thursdays: 5pm or 6pm.
  • Tuesdays, Fridays & Weekends: not available.

Waiting lists may be available for unlisted times.

NOTICE: Dean is not available from Monday 6th April to Monday 13th April (inclusive), though he may still be available to respond to enquiries and emails.

About Counsellor Dean Richardson MNCS(Accredited Registrant)

You could choose any counsellor.

But… when you consider that this is probably the most personal and the most vulnerable that you're going to be with someone, you'd choose someone you'd trust, who demonstrated adept professional skills, who spoke plain English (who's happy to use as much swearing/plain language as you use yourself), and who works in partnership with his clients (he doesn't sit in silence, or just says "Hmm" for 50 minutes)

…then you'd choose to meet with Dean Richardson.

Seems a simple choice, really.
