How do I get started?
You can email me, call me or send a text message as an initial enquiry.
We then agree a mutually convenient time for a Free brief telephone consultation (15 minutes) which gives us an opportunity to speak and for me to assess whether the issues or concerns you are facing may be something I am able to offer help with. I only can offer this if an individual client is asking for therapy.
If however, the request is to be seen as a couple, then an initial assessment session face to face is more appropriate.
When do you offer therapy sessions?
I offer sessions on weekdays (Monday - Thursday) Daytime and evening appointments are available on these days.
What is the cost of a session?
An individual session is £45.
A couple session is £65.
This fee is the same for an initial face to face assessment session.
Payment is made at each session in cash. I do not accept cheques or credit/debit cards.
How many sessions will I need?
This is a question which is not easy to answer but is a common one. Often a few sessions allow a light to be shone on an issue and a person sees their way forward without a need for longer term sessions. However, often once one thing is uncovered, others start surfacing and sessions continue as long as each client chooses.
You are of course free to end your therapy at any time.
I am interested in Outdoor Therapy. How does this work?
We will arrange an initial telephone consultation session and discuss what you are looking for. Boundaries and contracts for confidentiality are the same as sessions in a therapy room. The session fee and duration is the same as a session indoors.
How often should I have sessions?
If possible, initially weekly sessions are of most benefit to build up a therapeutic relationship. After several sessions then frequency can be discussed for ongoing sessions.
Is there a fee for a missed session or late cancellation?
Yes. The agreed session fee (individual or couple) is payable at the next face to face session if a session is missed. If a cancellation for whatever reason is made less than 48 hours before the booked session then the fee is payable at the next session. As we book each session in advance and space is set aside for you I ask you to agree to this.
How do I end my sessions?
There is enormous therapeutic benefit in working towards an ending session and agreeing this between therapist and client. This allows any reasons for ending to be discussed, be clear and processed as best as possible. Depending on the length of the therapy this can be a few weeks or months.
