Frequently Asked Questions


What are your rates for psychotherapy and counselling?

I charge £45 per session, payable at each session and offer discounts with 6-session packages. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. 


Is it necessary to be referred by a GP or other practitioner for counselling?

No, it is not necessary to be referred by a GP for psychotherapy/counselling and many of my clients are self-referred or referred by friends/family or current clients.  To book an appointment, please go to the contact page and send an email, or ring me to arrange.


How long is a psychotherapy/counselling session?

Each session lasts for 50 minutes, although the first session is usually longer in order to conduct an assessment.  Sessions are normally agreed for the same time/day each week, although I offer a flexible arrangement to accommodate clients’ professional schedules. I also offer psychotherapy/counselling sessions using SKYPE.


What happens in the counselling/psychotherapy session?

Therapy can be short or long-term, depending on your particular circumstances.  Each session is unique and it is up to you what you would like to bring. You can expect to be treated with compassion, respect and understanding and develop
- perspectives to highlight persistent patterns and negative feelings
- strategies for enacting positive change
- effective and proven techniques along with practical guidance
