How many sessions to come for
The number of sessions you need depends on the type of problems you bring. Many people find a short sequence of sessions sufficient (for example coming weekly for 6-12 weeks) but some may need a longer time to explore their issues in depth. I offer both short and long term work - the decision lies with you how long you wish to come for and what you want to focus on in our work together.
If you decide to continue with counselling or psychotherapy after our initial session together then we usually arrange to meet weekly at the same regular time agreed between us.
Sessions are confidential and I subscribe to the UKCP Code of Ethics.
The fee per session is £60 - this is payable by cheque or cash on the day of your appointment.
I hold a few reduced rate places (daytime only - limited availability) for those on lower incomes, please ask on first contacting me if this applies to you.
Cancellation policy: If you're unable to attend a session then please let me know the week before or earlier if possible. If I'm able to re-schedule for a time that is convenient for both of us I will endeavour to do so. However if I'm given less than 48 hours notice of cancellation then the full fee for the missed session is payable.
Private Health Care & Employment Assistance Schemes (EAP)
I'm an Approved Provider of Psychotherapy & Counselling therapy for PruHealth , AVIVA and CIGNA. If you are registered with one of these then I can invoice them for your sessions. I also see clients referred through the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP).
Length of Counselling/Psychotherapy sessions
Each session is for 50 minutes. Please note that if you should arrive late then we will still finish at the end of the pre-arranged 50 minutes.
I work as a counsellor and psychotherapist in Fleet Street, City of London EC4. I'm based in a quiet, dedicated counselling room in a discreet location. Its close to St. Paul's, Farringdon, Lincolns Inn, Temple, Blackfriars, Southwark, Holborn, Westminster and is easily accessible by public transport from most areas in Central London.
Unfortunately there is no wheelchair access. My room in Fleet Street is on the 3rd floor, there is a lift from the first floor.
