  • How do I start? 
    I offer a free, no obligation, telephone introductory session. This 30-minute chat allows us to be introduced and you can ask me any questions you might have about therapy or the way I work. We will use this time to also start thinking about what you want from therapy and anything you feel is immediately relevant from your past. Following our conversation there is no commitment for you to book any further sessions with me, I understand how important finding the right therapist is. If it feels as if the skills of a colleague, or an alternative service might be better suited to your needs, I will always let you know. If you do decide that you'd like to begin working together we will book our first session at this point Our first session(s) will be slightly different from the rest of therapy as I will be doing a lot of the talking - we'll explore what brings you to therapy and what you want to gain from it. You can ask any questions and we will agree on a rough plan of what we will work on.
  • How long and how frequent are sessions?
    Sessions are typically one clinical hour (50 minutes) which is standard across the profession to allow for note-taking and preparation for the next client.   ​Clients usually reserve the same appointment time on a recurring weekly (or fortnightly) basis. I do understand clients have busy lives so try to be flexible with scheduling appointments and offer face-to-face, online, and telephone appointments. If you require more than one session a week this is also something that I can accommodate.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    The number of sessions you want is entirely up to you as I offer sessions on an open-ended basis. Most people start with six and I will do regular reviews to check in on how things are going and you can decide when it feels right to end.
  • What if I need to cancel or reschedule an appointment?
    I operate a 48-hour rescheduling and cancellation policy, which means I will not charge you any fee if you give me notice of 48 hours or more. Should you need to reschedule, I will try to offer a suitable time, however, if I am unable to I will ask for the full fee to be paid.
  • Will our sessions be confidential?
    The content of our sessions together is confidential. However, I am legally and professionally obliged to share information with third parties without your prior consent in the following circumstances: 1. If I am sufficiently concerned that you may harm yourself or someone else 2. Where children or vulnerable adults are deemed at significant risk of current harm (physical, sexual, psychological, or financial abuse) 3. Acts of terrorism 4. Drug or people trafficking 5. Where I am ordered to share information by a court of law
  • How do I pay for sessions? 
    You can make a bank transfer prior to the session or in cash during a session. I will provide you with my bank details at the relevant point.
  • Do you offer concessions?
    I do offer a few concessionary rate slots per week, please raise this with me during our consultation and we can discuss various options.
