Appointments & Fees

Free Consultation

When you first contact me, it is helpful for us to have a free telephone conversation (around 15 – 20 minutes) to discuss what has led you to seek help from a psychologist and how I may be able to help.

Initial Assessment

If you then feel comfortable to proceed, we will make an appointment for an initial assessment session.  This is an opportunity to discuss in more detail the difficulties you or your child are experiencing, their impact upon daily life and wellbeing, and your hopes for change.  I will also obtain a history of how these difficulties have developed over time, stress factors that may have triggered current struggles, and circumstances that may be maintaining them now.  At the end of the assessment, I will make recommendations as to how to proceed therapeutically.

Therapy

Should we agree to work together, I would initially suggest meeting for a specific number of therapy sessions.  I normally suggest starting with 6 sessions.  This allows time to understand difficulties in greater depth and gain a sense of how long we may need to work together.  We would then agree upon next steps and review progress throughout therapy.

Confidentiality

The content of our sessions and any notes taken during and after the sessions remain strictly private and confidential.  This will be discussed in more detail during the initial assessment session, where legal exceptions to confidentiality will also be outlined.

Fees

My fees are £75 for a 60 minute face-to-face therapy session and £60 for skype sessions.  Reduced fees are available for therapists in training.  Payment may be made by cash or cheque at the end of each session or in advance by bank transfer.
