Starting therapy

 

 

 

 

Once you contact me by phone or by email, I endeavour to respond within 24 hours to offer you an initial consultation.

In our first meeting, we will think about what is troubling you and consider together what might be best to help you. I will ask about your personal history and will answer any question you may have about my work. 

The initial consultation will help you experience the way therapy works and decide whether this is for you. If you decide to start therapy, we will discuss the choice of short-term (usually 6 or 12 sessions), longer-term (up to one year) or open-ended work. We will also agree a time to meet and a fee. Sessions last 50 minutes and take place at the same time every week.  

 

The initial consultation is usually longer than a normal session, so please allow up to 90 minutes.

 

Fees

The fee for the initial consultation is £75. Fees for further sessions are by negociation. I offer low cost sessions for students or persons in financial hardship.
