Fees and practical arrangements
The first step is to arrange an initial one-off appointment, which costs £50 and lasts about an hour.
This initial session is an opportunity for you to tell me about your reasons for seeking therapy and for us both to find out what it might be like to work together.
If you are bringing a young person to see me, we'll all meet together for a short while first. There is no commitment at this stage and you may choose to take some time to think about whether it would be right for you.
If we go ahead, we shall arrange a regular session of 50 minutes at the same time every week. Regular sessions for all ages cost £50 each week.
Most of my work is on an open-ended basis, which means we continue to meet until coming to a decision that it is time to end. You may feel that you would like to begin with six sessions and decide whether to continue, after a few weeks.
Short-term or time-limited work, funded by private insurance or employee-assistance programmes, is charged at £60 per session, to allow for the additional administration involved. I am recognised as a therapy provider by BUPA and other private health insurers.
Individual Clinical Supervision is charged at £50 per hour (fortnightly) or £75 for an hour and a half (monthly). Group rates by negotiation.
