Maggie Reilly, Psychotherapist
What's the difference between psychotherapy and counselling? They are pretty much the same in approach but generally speaking differ in terms of the level of qualification i.e. psychotherapy training is at post graduate level. I have undertaken 10 years clinical training at this level. I have experience of working in voluntary and private sectors as well as the NHS in an acute Psychiatric setting. In addition, I also work as a supervisor where I supervise trainee psychotherapists and I also carry out assessments for individuals wanting to undertake psychotherapy training.
I work from a recently restored building in the heart of Westerham which is within easy reach of Sevenoaks, Tatsfield, Biggin Hill, Oxted and Edenbridge. The main car park in Westerham provides free parking for up to 3 hours.
How will you know if this is the right therapy for you? We start with an initial consultation after which there is no obligation to continue if you don't wish to. The purpose of the consultation will be to help us both decide if Psychotherapy could benefit you. If you wish to make an appointment then please leave me a message on 07527 777374 or contact me via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org The initial consultation will last for 50 minutes and there will be a charge of £60 which is payable, in cash, on the day. Ongoing fees are set between us at the initial consultation. Please see further below for more about fees.
