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 for a 50 minute session. I have some concessionary rated available for students and those on a low wage.
Where are you based?
I practice from Ongea, a therapy service in Old Street, London EC1. The rooms are sound proofed and specifically designed for the use of counselling and psychotherapy.

What happens when you contact me?
I will offer you an initial phone consultation 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. I will ask you about your family history and key events in your life, as well as what is happening now.
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 we will 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.
