Getting Started

You can make initial contact with me by email, text message or phone, whichever way is most comfortable and convenient.

After we have had a brief discussion, the next step is to arrange an assessment session.

This session provides an opportunity for us to meet, for you to tell me about yourself and your difficulties, and for me to check that I am able to offer you the help that you need. The assessment session is also an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns.

To make an appointment for a first assessment or ask a question please contact me in one of the following ways:

  • Call or send a text message to 07891 613580
  • Send an email
  • See my availability and book using my Online Booking Service

  • Fees and Sessions

    The assessment session lasts for 50 minutes. If at the end we are both happy to proceed with psychotherapy sessions we can make these arrangements, However, if you need some time after the assessment, there is no obligation to book regular therapy sessions at the end of the assessment. You may take as much time as you need.

    The cost of all sessions (including the asessment session) is as follows. All sessions last for 50 minutes:

  • For individuals I charge £46 per session for both face-to-face and online therapy (including the initial meeting)
  • For couples I charge £55 per session (including the initial meeting)

    I have a small number of concessionary rate places available each week for those who are on low incomes. Please contact me if you think you may be eligible for one of these places. Concessionary places are currently full.

    All fees are subject to annual review (the next review will be in March 2020)

    Payment methods accepted include:
  • Cash or Cheque (paid at the end of the session)
  • Bank Transfer (paid at least 48 hours before the session - either before or after the appointment)
  • Credit/Debit Card Payments (if booking online through my Online Booking Service ) also paid at least 48 hours before the session

    Attending Sessions

    I offer weekly or fortnightly sessions.. There is flexibility about the arrangement of these sessions and and we can discuss is best for you at the assessment session.

    If your work or other commitments prevent you from attending at a regular day and time I'll do my best to accommodate your needs but whether this is possible will depend on the issues you are bringing to therapy as well as my schedule at the time.


    As I see people both on a weekly and fortnightly basis and as I have a full schedule I ask for 48 hours notice for cancellations. Payment in full for any missed or cancelled session is due unless this notice period has been provided.
