It’s important to get a feel for what it might be like working together and our communication will start with a short informal chat over the phone to discuss what you’re looking for. If I feel I can support you will then be invited to attend a free no-obligation consultation appointment lasting 50-minutes.
If you then decide to enter into therapy you will be offered your own dedicated weekly appointment slot. Please note I can only see clients on a weekly basis in order to protect our sense of continuity, flow and rapport.
Individuals – £50 per session
- A standard individual session will last for 50-minutes and may be attended in person or via video conference (online therapy).
Relationship/ Couple’s therapy – £80 (50-mins) or £100 (1hr 30mins)
- Couples may choose from either a standard length session (50-mins) or request longer sessions (1hr 30mins). Due to the nature of the work I can only conduct relationship counselling in person (online unavailable).
Our work together is open-ended and you choose when you feel ready to finish. You are not financially tied into sessions or required to pay anything upfront.
Payment is required in the session and I accept cash, BACS or PayPal.
What can I expect in the consultation session?
I understand that it can be really daunting to meet a therapist for the first time. Essentially it’s an opportunity to see if we feel comfortable working together, to ask questions and think about what you’d like to get from sessions.
I’ve put together a short guide which you might find handy in preparing you for our first session.
One of the first questions people often ask is how long will I be in therapy? It’s impossible to answer this as self-exploration is a journey and not a destination. It is above all a process.
Whilst it can be helpful to have an idea of what you’d like to work on not everyone knows what’s troubling them and that’s totally OK too.
I personally feel wary of practitioners claiming to offer quick-fix solutions to lifelong problems, of course significant gains can be made in a relatively short time frame but it’s also important to manage our expectations and not put ourselves under unnecessary pressure.
We are not broken machines with faulty components to diagnose and fix. We may be hurt but we can heal. Be patient with yourself and the process.
