Getting Started

After we have made initial contact and had a conversation (by email, text message or phone) the next step is to arrange a first assessment session.

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

We can also work out together what happens next - whether you feel comfortable enough with me to feel that more sessions would be helpful, and whether I am able to offer you the help that you need. You may also want to take some time to think things through.

If you have any questions about getting started, or about any of the services I offer please do contact me by phone or text message on 07891 613580 or by email

To make an appointment, please use the above contact details or send me an email

Fees and Sessions

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.

    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.

    Sessions are generally on the same day and at the same time each week or fortnight (e.g Tuesdays at 5.30pm or every other Friday at 4.30pm). 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, whatever the reason for the cancellation.

    How to Contact Me

    I can be contacted by email or phone, and am usually able to respond on the same day to your query, We can then schedule an initial session to explore how to begin to understand your anxiety and help you to work through it.

    Alternatively you can go to my Online Booking Service to see the days and times I currently have available and request a booking there. I will then confirm the booking with you by email.
