Generally speaking we sit together in a quiet, comfortable room in the privacy of my home. I have studied and practised a wide range of counselling and psychotherapy techniques and will talk with you about your individual concerns to determine the best approach for you.
I work with both couples and individuals.
Counselling and Psychotherapy sessions are usually for one hour weekly, unless otherwise agreed.
I aim to be as flexible as possible with appointments, but when you come to see me you can expect:
An initial appointment to discuss your situation and to decide whether therapy is right for you.
A regular weekly session of 1 hour for as many (or few) times as needed.
Confidentiality strictly maintained.
Evening appointments if necessary.
My hours of work are : 8.45am - 8.00pm Monday to Thursday; 8.45am - 5.00pm Friday.
Individual Psychotherapy and Counselling - £50.00 per hour session.
Couple Psychotherapy and Counselling - £60.00 per hour session.
Individual Supervision - £50.00 per hour session.
All fees are payable at each appointment by cash or cheque. I also accept BACS transfer and you can pay here via
Full fees are chargeable if appointments are cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. (If appointments are cancelled by me, there will of course be no charge).
Late arrivals will also be charged and the session will finish at the original booked time.
No fee will be charged for pre-arranged holidays.
If you need to re-arrange an appointment, I will do so where possible.
Your identity and records remain confidential to the therapeutic relationship, with one exception. I will contact your GP, Social Services or the Police, as appropriate, if I believe you are in danger of harming yourself or others. I will consult you prior to involving others wherever possible.
