Frequently asked questions
How long does therapy take?
I offer no time restrictions on how long someone may feel they need to be in therapy. As a psychotherapist I offer open ended sessions that are specifically tailored to an individual’s needs.
How much do you charge?
I charge £50 - £60 for a 50 minute session. I have some concessionary rated available for students and those on a low wage.
Where are you based?
I have two premises I practice from. One of which is in the heart of the City of London, at 23 Austin Friars, London EC2N 2QP.
The other is in Shoreditch, at The Old Fire Station, 140 Tabernacle Street, London EC2A 4SD.
What happens when you contact me?
I offer an initial phone consultation, which is free of charge. This will help me to find out what you hope to gain from therapy. I will be interested in finding out more about you and what brings you to therapy at this point in your life.
This will also be an opportunity for you to ask me any questions about how I work, or any concerns you may have about psychotherapy and counselling. By the end of the consultation we should be able to decide together the best way forward.
Many people can find the consultation in itself therapeutic, or that it helps them to clarify their situation in a more active way.
If we decide to work together, I offer a more in depth face to face assessment; which provides an opportunity to explore in more detail your family history and key events in your life, as well as what is happening now in your life. We will also consider whether to work in the short or long term and agree a regular time to meet and a fee. Appointments normally take place at the same time each week.
