I recommend booking a 15 minute telephone consultation free of charge prior to booking a first session. After this, if you would like to book a session, I will offer you an appointment at a regular weekly time. Contact me to arrange a time. Sessions are for 50 minutes and are charged at the following rates:
The first session with me comprises of an initial assessment, where we explore together your background and reasons for coming for therapy. I will ask you about what is going on for you now, and what you may need support with. I will also ask you to tell me a little about your childhood and family history, relationship background, traumas and challenges, as well as your motivations and interests.
The assessment has therapeutic value in itself, and will give you a sense of how I work and how I may be able to support you. At the end of the first session, we will make a mutual decision as to whether working together feels appropriate. I recommend making an initial commitment of 6-12 sessions, and then we can review.
“When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write a brave new ending.”
I offer both long and short term therapy. Short term therapy usually takes around 12-18 weeks and can be focused on a particular issue. I can help you to reflect on what's going on and understand your situation more deeply. I will offer strategies and tools to support you with the challenges that you are facing.
Long term therapy is open ended, exploring what emerges and reviewing at regular intervals. Long term therapy is an inner journey where I can support you to delve into unconsious patterns that form the basis of your internal experience. Through this, it is possible to become more conscious of what may be hindering you and to get in touch with dormant potential that can bring a deeper sense of meaning to your life.
