You can contact me by phone or email (directly or using the Contact Form) to arrange a convenient time for us to speak on the phone in the first instance. If it feels right for you to take the next step, we can make an arrangement to do that. I am usually able to offer an initial meeting within a few weeks.
I am currently offering video (Zoom) or telephone sessions
I allow up to 75 minutes for this session with individuals and 90 minutes for couples, during which we can explore how we might work together. It is an opportunity for you to ask questions and to experience what it might be like to work with me. It is an opportunity for me to understand a little bit more about what has brought you here.
There is no commitment to meet again at this stage and I would encourage anyone to meet with several professionals if possible, to allow themselves to find the support which feels right for them.
On-going sessions last 50 minutes for individuals and 60 minutes for couples. They are scheduled for the same day and time each week.
If your hope is to focus on a specific concern we might agree to meet for a particular number of sessions. Alternatively, we might agree to begin working on an open ended basis with a four week notice period. In both cases, we can review what was originally agreed at any point.
Up to 75 minutes - Fee of £55
50 minutes - Fee of £60 to £75 depending on time of day
Up to 90 minutes - Fee of £75
60 minutes - Fee of £80 to £95 depending on time of day
Payment for sessions is due on a weekly basis. I am currently not able to offer any further reduced fees.
I have chosen not to register directly with any private health insurers at this time but am always happy to provide receipts for payment if you are able to claim directly or via a company scheme. In my experience, many companies are willing to part or fully fund talking therapy so it is perhaps worth asking your employer what support may be available to you.
