Fees

I have a sliding scale of payments depending on circumstances. The standard fee is £95 if gross income is over £40,000 but this is negotiable at the initial consultation. If you are unemployed or an under-graduate student the minimum payment is £65. You may only need a short course of treatment, so you can plan your budget in advance.
You are paying a fee in order to get to grips with your own specific issues. Yet anyone might need reassurance that the person you choose to consult is robust, astute, has integrity and that none of the personal circumstances brought to therapy are either insurmountable or insignificant.

Further information

Rather than delivering a prescriptive treatment I assess and treat each client as unique, with specific needs, which together we can identify and clarify.

I take a non-judgemental, broad minded, empathic and compassionate approach, working within the structured cognitive analytic (CAT) approach, which has been clinically tested in NHS Services. This may include integrative aspects of trauma –based therapy, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural (CBT)and evidence-based arts therapies techniques.

I have twenty years of NHS experience as a Clinical Research Lead and Head of Department, and over the past decade I have established a private psychotherapy service in which my clients’ problems are frequently resolved over a cost-effective, time-limited treatment. I take self- referrals, as well and referrals from top consultants in cancer care and private psychiatric healthcare.

I am registered with all leading healthcare insurance companies. I also receive referrals through the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine( BAPAM) specialising in the performing artists who suffer various forms of performance anxiety or depression.

If you have an arts based background or a creative desire that you have never had a chance to safely express without feeling fearful, judged or exposed, the non-verbal forms of artistic or musical expression may be included within your CAT therapy at your choice. For example:

If you find it difficult to put your thoughts and feelings into words.

If you feel numb and cannot easily access your feeling.

Choosing the right Therapist is important and is vital to a satisfactory outcome.

Your therapy session is time for you to share what you feel safe enough to confide. I recommend an initial consultation with no further obligation unless this feels like the right path for you to take.
