Getting Started

The first step is to make initial contact with me in the way that is most comfortable and convenient for you.

I am available on Monday - Friday, 9am - 7pm to discuss the kind of help in therapy that you need. You can:

  • Call or send a text message to 07891 613580
  • Contact Me by email
  • See my availability or book online on my Online Booking Service

  • Getting Started. Woodland Pathway 2018

    The Initial Consultation

    This session provides an opportunity for us to meet, and for you to talk in more detail about yourself and your difficulties,. This session is also an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns.

    If at the end we are both happy to proceed we can make a plan for your therapy, and arrangements for future sessions. However, if you need some time after this initial session, there is no obligation to book further sessions straight away. You may take as much time as you need.

    Fees and Sessions

    I offer regular (weekly, or fortnightly) sessions of psychotherapy in a warm and welcoming environment. Currently all sessions are online and sessions last for 50 minutes.

    The cost of each session is £50

    If you are on a low income and want to attend weekly sessions I may be able to offer you a reduced rate. Please Contact Me for details and to discuss your circumstances.

    All fees are subject to annual review (the next review will be in September 2021)

    I ask you to pay the session fee before each session using one of the following methods:
  • Bank Transfer
  • Debit or Credit Card (if using my Online Booking Service or if preferring to receive an invoice and clicking the link to pay on the invoice)

  • I'll provide the information you need for your chosen method before your initial session.


    As I have a busy schedule I ask you to agree to give me 48 hours notice of any cancellations you need to make. If this notice period is not provided payment in full for the session will be due, whatever the reason for the cancellation.


    When it is time for the therapy to end it is useful to have a gradual ending over several weeks. We can decide together what a useful ending period will be for you and this will depend on how long we have been working together as well as your personal preference. In general, it is useful to provide 1-2 weeks notice when planning to leave.
