I am an integrative therapist drawing on several psychological models of therapy including psychodynamic, person-centred and cognitive behavioural approaches. Therapy is strictly confidential. You would have an initial assessment consultation where mutual suitability can be established, the issue(s) you’d like to work on can be discussed, as well as the frequency and number of sessions you might need. Any other queries you might have can also be addressed at this consultation. Typically a session is 50 minutes. Fees payable at the end of each session. Cancellation fees may be applicable.
