Get in touch by email or phone to discuss your situation and to make an initial appointment.
The initial session gives you chance to see how you feel about working together and explore what you want to get from counselling. The first session can naturally feel uncomfortable. Speaking to a stranger about personal and difficult issues is not easy. It is important that you select a therapist who you feel is right for you; someone you sense you can work with and who understands your goals. After the initial session, should you want to go ahead, we can plan how to proceed and either structure a number of sessions for short-term counselling or begin open-ended therapy. On commencing therapy we will review our progress at regular intervals, both reflecting on work and re-evaluating goals together should it be necessary. Should I not have available space or be the right counsellor for you, I may be able to suggest other therapists.
I work Monday to Friday and offer evening and daytime appointments. Sessions last 50 minutes, meeting usually once a week, preferably at a regular time. The rhythm of regular weekly meetings creates a stable arena for change. I offer sessions face-to-face, via telephone and over Skype
I see clients in a beautiful space close to Oxford Street: The Duke Street Practice. I also meet with clients in Notting Hill.
Individual therapy is £60-£80 per session, payable in cash or cheque at the end of each session. I can provide you with a receipt. I occasionally have some low-cost places.
I have a 72-hour cancellation policy, otherwise the session will need to be paid for. It may be possible to reschedule an appointment in the same week if you can provide notice.
