My fees are usually £60 per 50 minute session depending on income and circumstances. I offer a limited number of concessionary rates for people on very low income and students.
I also offer a free telephone consultation before an initial session.
My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is Integrative. This means that I will work with you, drawing from a variety of models of counselling to suit your individual needs.
As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist I am experienced in drawing upon different theoretical counselling models such as relational, attachment based, psychodynamic, and person centred. Above all I believe that the relationship between myself and my client is very important and I aim to build a supportive, safe and confidential relationship where we can discuss and explore your thoughts, feelings and issues together.
Sessions are usually weekly and last for 50 minutes.
