What will a session cost and how long will it last?

How do I get to my session?
My psychotherapy and counselling practice in Leicester is based in West Knighton, Leicester, (1 Northdene Road, LE2 6FJ). This is located approximately two miles south of Leicester city centre, very close to the Welford Road which is serviced by a number of bus routes, and also close to Aberdale Road. Adjacent are the Clarendon Park and Stoneygate areas of Leicester. Bus numbers 44 and 44A, which take about 15 minutes from Leicester railway station, run within a few yards - buses 47,48,49, 49A and 49B also run from the city centre along Welford Road. See map at the bottom of the home page.
Counselling takes place in a ground floor sitting room of my home, with no flights of steps involved - at present however I cannot offer ground floor toilet facilities. Unrestricted parking is readily available at all times.
