Contact- Fees & Terms
When you first contact me, we will have a brief conversation by phone or correspond via email. This initial consultation is an opportunity for you to meet me and get a sense of what therapy is like. You will have the opportunity to talk about what brings you to therapy, what you hope to achieve through our work together and we will discuss whether weekly psychotherapy sessions can be helpful to you, or whether a different kind of help would be more beneficial. It is also an opportunity for you to ask questions or share any concerns you have about starting therapy.
During the initial consultation I will also gather some information from you such as contact details, brief family history, current medication, and we will talk about the practicalities of therapy. Please rest assured that your inquiry, as well as our sessions, will be treated in confidence.
If we decide to start therapy, we would then agree a set day and time and meet every week. Meeting weekly will help keep the consistency of the therapy and make you feel supported as we explore what is troubling you. Our sessions will last 50 minutes.
Fees are agreed on an individual basis and can range from £35 to £55. Concessions are available for unemployed and students.
Confidentiality is at the heart of building a trusting relationship. Our conversations will be confidential and this confidentiality continues to apply after you have ended your therapy. Circumstances when confidentiality may be breached will be discussed in the first session.
I am bound to the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy as elaborated by the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy). My practice is based in the UK. By making use of my therapy service you agree that the service is governed by English law and that the English judiciary has exclusive jurisdiction.
