When are appointments available?
My private practice working hours are 2-6pm on Monday/Tuesday, 2-8pm on Wednesday and 9-5pm Fridays.
How much does therapy cost?
The current fee for counselling, psychotherapy is £60 per hour, and £80 per hour for EMDR and CRM .
You can pay by card machine, BACS, or cash, I shall give you more information on this after your initial consultation. I usually request payment in advance or at the end of each face to face session.
How long do sessions last?
All assessment appointments are 1.5 hours.
Psychotherapy and EMDR sessions are 1.5 hours long as standard.
Counselling is 50 mins per session.
How many sessions will I need?
We will contract the regularity that best suits you. This will be reviewed on a regular basis as over a period of time you may feel you need more time in between sessions, like fortnightly or monthly.
The therapy I offer can be either long-term or short-term; the amount of sessions will depend mostly on you, and factors such as your motivation, availability, and the issues you bring.
How confidential are the sessions?
Nothing you say is revealed to anyone else without your specific consent. I am a registered member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (Reg MBACP) and abide by its ethical framework. I work to the high standards outlined by the BACP.
I am under regular professional supervision, as set out in the BACP framework to monitor the counselling, psychotherapy and EMDR therapy I provide. I am fully insured.
The only times confidentiality would be breached is if I thought there was a danger of you committing harm to yourself or to others - especially, though not exclusively, if a child or children might be at risk.
What is the first step?
Please call or contact me by email to book a free, no obligation, 20 minute telephone consultation to discuss your specific situation and see if I am the right therapist for your needs. If we agree to work together we can then decide on a suitable time and day for us to meet for your assessment.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule a session?
Any cancellations must be made a minium of 48 hours before your appointment takes place. Missed or cancelled appointments (without 48 hours notice) will be charged at full fee.
