Practicalities

If you think that counselling or psychotherapy might help, you can call me for a brief chat and we can arrange an initial session. This session will be an opportunity for you to begin talking about whatever you are struggling with, and to decide whether we can work productively together. If you choose to continue with sessions, we would agree when and how frequently you would like to meet. Usually, I expect to see individuals and couples on a weekly basis, and families every two to three weeks.

I offer a sliding scale of £60 – £75 per session for individuals, and £70 – £100 per session for couples and families.  If you feel that these fees prevent you from committing to ongoing work, please do discuss it with me as I try to offer some flexibility.

I also offer two concessionary places (one for individuals and one for couples) where the fee is entirely negotiable.  These places are for time-limited therapy (16 sessions) and are offered to people in financial hardship.  As of April 2018 both these places are filled.

I work in a quiet, comfortable room at The Practice Rooms in Clifton. Please see their website for directions and a map. Where appropriate, I am also able to offer sessions by Skype or by phone.
