Frequently Asked Questions
How does therapy work?
I offer a free 15-minute consultation to get to know each other and what I offer. If you decide to go ahead, we will then book a full assessment session.
This assessment can help us think through the different things that may have brought you to therapy. We will then start to make sense of how things may be feeling stuck at the moment and create therapy goals for how you want to move forward. In the coming sessions we create and start to follow your tailored treatment plan drawing on the principles of the different therapies I offer.
The therapeutic relationship is so important so I always schedule regular reviews to make sure we are on the right track for you.
How much does therapy cost?
If you decide to go ahead following the free consultation my fees are:
Initial assessment (50minutes): £80
Therapy session (50minutes) £80
EMDR processing session (90minutes): £120
What happens if I cancel a session?
Life can be busy so I always try to be flexible and rearrange if you cancel an appointment in advance.
If you cancel within 48 hours, the session will be charged at 50% rate of a session, as with late notice it is not possible for me to rebook the slot. The cancellation rate would need to be paid in order to continue with the sessions.
How do I pay for sessions?
Once we have booked your regular slot, payment is to be made via bank transfer (BACS) before the appointment date. Payment details are provided in a therapy agreement which is shared prior to your first session.
Payment is to be made 24 hours before the appointment is due. If payment is not received, then it will be assumed the appointment will not be going ahead.
How do I attend the appointment?
I currently offer all my appointments remotely at the moment via Zoom, Microsoft Teams or telephone- whichever you prefer. There is a lot of emerging evidence that therapy delivered online can be just as effective as face-to-face. In my experience, my clients often report remote appointments are convenient and can fit easily into daily life.
