What to Expect in the Initial Consultation Appointment?
I offer an initial consultation which involves a psychology assessment. This will
help you explore your concerns and difficulties, the most appropriate form of treatment,
the duration and frequency of therapy and its cost. Initial consultation appointments
usually last for 1 hour. After the initial consultation and should we agree to work
together, we can discuss arrangements for further therapy sessions.
I offer weekly or fortnightly therapy sessions. The frequency of sessions may also
be once or twice a week. Individual therapy sessions last for 50 minutes at a regular
time. During therapy, you will have space to explore and discuss your issues and
concerns. I aim to help individuals explore and make sense of their problems in safe
and supportive environment.
I have available sessions on Weekdays and Saturday mornings.
All information is treated as confidential. However, there are some circumstances
where I am legally obliged to break confidentiality. This is usually when someone
is at risk of serious harm to themselves or others.
Initial consultation sessions cost £70. Each individual therapy session costs £60.
Initial consultations or therapy sessions are payable in advance or on the day of
the session. Fees are reviewed annually.
There are also a few spaces for a fee reduction for those on low incomes. This is
negotiable depending upon each individual’s financial circumstance.
I am a registered practitioner for Health Providers, Insurance Companies and Employee
Assistance Programmes (EAP’s). Please note that different fee scales apply. Please
check with them before embarking on therapy to make sure your policy is valid and
that your sessions will be covered in full.
