How to begin therapy and get the help you need
Make Initial Contact, Attending Sessions, Fees and Cancellation Policies
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:
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
Payment methods accepted include:
I offer weekly or fortnightly sessions. Attending sessions at least fortnightly is important for building the solid working relationship needed to explore and work through problems or difficulties. There is, however, some flexibility and we can discuss whether weekly or fortnightly sessions are 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 you work on a shift pattern or have other commitments which prevent you from attending at a regular day and time please send me an email to discuss alternative arrangements. 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
