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 (approximately 25 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.
Who do you see?I see individuals and also couples.
I offer therapy sessions to clients from age 16 years upwards.
What is the cost of a session?An individual session is £50 between 9-17.00.After 17.00 sessions are £60
A couples session is £70 before 17.00. After 17.00 the session is £80
This fee is the same for an initial face to face assessment session.
Payment is made in advance of each session. The initial session can be paid online to my bank account.
Sorry but I am unable to accept cheques or credit/debit cards.
I offer a free brief no obligation telephone consultation. Just contact me to arrange this.
When do you offer therapy sessions?I offer sessions on Mondays between 9.00-20.00.
Please contact me if this would not fit with your availability and I will be as flexible as I can.
Do you offer any sessions online? Telephone?Yes I offer both Skype and FaceTime sessions which can work incredibly well if you have to travel for work or leave the area after you have been having face to face sessions. This also works well for you if you want continuity of sessions but are going out of the area for any reason.
Telephone sessions can also be arranged if this would be preferred.
You may prefer this type of therapy sessions if you are unable to leave your home and also if you do not drive so getting to me would be difficult. Some clients who feel particularly anxious have said that this option is very helpful as they may not have been able to attend a face to face session.
We arrange sessions exactly the same way as we would if you and I were meeting up and we have the same level of privacy as we would in the therapy space.
How long is each therapy session?Each session is 55 minutes.
An outdoor therapy session can be extended to 90 minutes.
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 however an ending session or work towards this is of most therapuetic benefit if this is possible.
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.
An initial session indoors in the therapy room will be arranged forst and a mutually agreed location for outdoor therapy can be discussed and arranged.
The fee for a one hour outdoor therapy session is the same as for an indoor session and is £50.
I only offer outdoor therapy sessions to individuals.
