As I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship, I offer a free 20-30 minute phone consultation. This provides you the opportunity to ask any questions and to see if we would feel comfortable working together.
Sessions are normally 50 minutes in duration for both individuals and couples. I also offer 75 minutes to couples who want sessions of longer duration. The overall number of sessions will depend on what you wish to explore and the pace at which you feel comfortable to work. It is your choice how many sessions you book and we can review this together at any time. It is my experience that meeting weekly is most beneficial, at least for an initial period of time. Ideally sessions are arranged on a regular day and time. This gives a sense of structure and aids the therapeutic process. Sometimes life does necessitate a more flexible approach to appointment planning though! When we meet we can talk through what feels right for you and we can review these arrangements at any time.
Fees are payable at the beginning of each session.

Cancellations and missed sessions
For therapy to have a positive outcome it is very important to attend regularly. In order to allow me to reserve a regular slot at the same time and day in my diary for the duration of your therapy, any sessions missed or cancelled by you will have to be paid for in full. If it is possible, I will always try to find an alternative time in that week.
