The initial consultation allows you a first experience of a talking therapy and how would it be for us to work together. It is an opportunity to talk about your reasons for coming to therapy and for us to think about the nature of your difficulties if you would benefit from psychodynamic psychotherapy. You could also ask questions about the therapeutic process. We usually meet at least twice before you make a decision to start the therapy sessions. Each initial consultation costs £100 and is paid in advance prior to the appointment.
Once you start your therapy, the weekly sessions will last for fifty minutes each and the fees are discussed when we meet. Sometimes I have vacancies for reduced fees if you are a student, on low income or experiencing financial hardship. Therapy sessions are usually paid monthly by cheque or cash.
Please note that the sessions take place at a regular day an time each week and the therapist will not see anybody else at the time reserved to each patient. For this reason, missed or cancelled sessions will still be charged.
