My fees are £90 an hour but I offer a one off 30 minute phone call as initial contact to ensure an assessment is indicated at a cost of £30.
To get things started please either email me or give me a ring and we can discuss what happens with the next step. If we then arrange an assessment appointment I would hope from this I will have a good idea of what intervention would be most helpful or indeed if there are NHS services you could access. Many people like weekly or fortnightly sessions in the first instance but I am flexible and can fit in with individual's needs. I look forward to hearing from you!
