When you arrive 

The counselling rooms are located on the right side of the main house and set back a few feet.  Turn into (or reverse into) the drive and park right in front of the waiting room – (you will see your therapist’s name in the window).    

 



It would be much appreciated if you could check that you have left enough room behind your car to allow any car parked on the
gravel area next to the drive to exit.  
If you decide not to park on the drive, there is unrestricted parking on Wetherby Road, but please don't park too close to our neighbours driveways.

 



Go straight in at the door  (which will be unlocked around 10 minutes prior to your appointment time) and take a seat in the waiting room.
  Tea and coffee making facilities are provided and there is milk, water and fruit juice in the fridge underneath the kettle, so please help yourself.   There is a toilet along the corridor.  Your therapist will come down to collect you at the agreed time.
