Therapy sessions are 50 minutes long costing £80.00 for self-referred individuals. Other referral sources (e.g. insurance companies/employers) will be charged more. Payment is due at the beginning of each session by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
Please contact me by email or telephone for an initial conversation to see whether the therapy I offer might be of help to you. If you think it might be, then we can meet for an initial assessment appointment to decide whether my style of work suits your needs. The initial assessment session costs £100.00 (1 hour) and would usually include an assessment summary letter written to your GP if you choose for this to happen.
If I am not the right professional for you, there is no obligation for you to see me for further appointments and I will endeavour to point you towards a source of help that meets your needs.
