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 £55 for a 50 minute session. I have some concessionary rated available for students and those on a low wage.
Where are you based?
I am based in The Therapeutic Rooms, The Courtyard House, 170 Brick Lane, London E1 6RU. The rooms are purpose built for the use of therapy, which means they are quiet, confidential and comfortable. The nearest tube is Liverpool Street, which is approx 10 mins walk. There is also Shoreditch High Street overground station, which is a 5 mins walk.
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.
