I appreciate that making the choice to come to therapy can be a difficult and daunting task. When in times of distress it is difficult to decide where to go. I can offer you a consultation at Calmer Clincs in Pimlico to discuss your needs and what the therapy would entail. We will work at a pace that feels right for you and hopefully get you to a place where you feel able to face the world with confidence and honesty.
I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist and have experience of working with persons of all ages and with a variety of presenting problems and anxieties.
I am able to work with you for both short and long term therapy with the aim being to enable you to lead a more fulfilling life.
If you are unsure about whether therapy is for you, you can email me to arrange an appointment to talk about what it is that's on your mind and we can go from there. Sometimes it can just be good to talk.
Calmer Clinincs in Pimlico offer quiet and secluded rooms where you can feel completely confident you are heard and contained. Situated in the heart of London it is easily accessible and I offer evening sessions so we can work around possible work commitments.
My Shoreditch High Street location is easily accessible from Liverpool Street station and Shoreditch High Street overground station and offers a safe and quiet space in the centre of the city. It is both a welcoming and private place where you can explore the things closest to you.

When beginning therapy one would have an initial consultation. This consultation is a way to establish your needs and to try and outline what therapy entails and whether Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is suitable for you. I would advise that you allow up to 90 minutes for this initial session.
Charge for initial 1 & 1/2 hour consultation is usually £120
For ongoing therapy the fee will be £85 per weekly, 50 minute session. The price will be discussed and agreed during the initial consultation.
Please note though that a lower fee may be available for those on benefits or unemployed. Fees can also be negotiated in the initial consultation dependant on economic circumstances
