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 introductory session. This session provides an opportunity to talk through your difficulties in more detail.

To make an appointment or ask a question about any of the services I offer you can

  • Fees and Sessions

    Beginning therapy can feel like a scary step to take and you may feel unsure about whether it is right for you. For this reason the introductory session that I offer is an opportunity to discover if therapy is right for you and I am the right therapist for you. If we decide to work together I charge my usual fee at the end of this session. If we don't agree to work together there is no charge.

    After the introductory session, all sessions last for 50 minutes and my charges are as follows:

  • 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 on the day of the session - either before or after the appointment)
  • Credit/Debit Card Payments (if booking online through my Online Booking Service )

    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 our initial meeting.

    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.
