Tess Galley Counselling

Experienced counsellor working with adults

Marlborough, Wiltshire and online 


Introductory Call – I offer the option of a free 15 minute phone call to briefly talk about the issue you would like some support with, and to see if we feel we are a good fit to work together.

Or you may decide to go straight to booking a First Session.

First Session – This is a full session giving us an opportunity to talk in more detail about what is troubling you, to discuss your hopes and needs from counselling, and how I might be able to support you.  It will also give us a good sense of what it would be like to work together. 

There is no commitment to continue beyond the first session – it is important that we feel comfortable with one another with a shared understanding of the support I can offer you.

This is a paid session.

All sessions are 50 minutes

This will depend on the issues you want to work through, and what you are wanting from therapy.  We would begin with 6 sessions with regular reviews to see if we will be working towards a final session or something longer-term. 

Sessions usually take place on a weekly basis, and often on the same day and time. However, I am able to offer some flexibility around this. 

Sometimes in longer-term work sessions may eventually go to fortnightly, but everything can be discussed depending on the level of support you need.

Individual sessions – £55

Concessionary rate – £40 for trainee counsellors and full-time students

Preferred payment is by online bank transfer and is requested 24hrs in advance of the booked session.  

There is a cash payment option for face-to-face clients, on request.

Cancellations made less than 24hrs before the session are payable in full unless an alternative session can be arranged in the same week.

My face-to-face clients come from  anywhere in the surrounding area within reasonable travelling distance that works for them. As I also work online and by telephone, it does not matter where you live in the UK, even if you are local! 

I work face-to-face, online and by telephone.  You can have sessions purely in one way, or a combination – whatever works best for you.  Remote sessions can be from the comfort of your own home or other private space as long as you have somewhere quiet and confidential where you feel safe and comfortable to talk freely.

Monday – 9am – 6pm

Tuesday – 9am – 6pm
