Background information and fees

An initial consultation cost is set at £30 to establish a healthy rapport. I need to assess the Psychological element in the representation and you will decide if it is comfortable to talk with me. This will enable you to decide if  I have the skills and experience you are looking for. If we find a good fit, this cost will be deducted from your first session, or refunded if you want to find help elsewhere.

I usually charge between £55 – £65 per session in treatment packages for individuals or couples. I have some flexibility for students and those on low income. I ask for payment in advance of sessions and a full refund will be arranged for any appointment cancelled with 48 hours notice.

We are living in challenging and complex times and I appreciate this so I work hard to accommodate your schedule with the option of  clinics outside regular office hours. This allows evening sessions up to 9pm and Saturday consultations. I monitor emails and texts daily and aim is to respond to your requests within 24 hours. I understand that people find it difficult to make the first move on sensitive issues, so I try to arrange a ‘face to face’, Whatsapp or Zoom consultation within 7 days of your initial enquiry.

I pride myself on a person centered approach, If I feel you are not in the right physical or emotional place, I will say so. I also have a network of close professionals who I can refer you onto if necessary.

I have developed an awareness over many years in therapy that some personal circumstances and cultural norms provide a very sheltered emotional and sexual background. This can make it a difficult subject to approach. An inability to communicate can limit your ability to make & develop informed sexual choices. I write programmes to support the change and experimentation which could challenge these.

In my role as practice supervisor I have gained a working experience in the treatment and management of more complex problems.
