An early morning walk across London Bridge to my practice

Availability

Updated 8 July 2019

For face-to-face appointments, I have very limited availability, My last remaining slots are currently:

  • Monday 12 - 3 pm in Stoke Newington.

  • Friday 5 pm in London Bridge.

Please enquire to find out what slots I can offer; I will accommodate you as best I can.

I have availability for Skype appointments on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Fees

  • I offer 50-minute sessions to individual adults (18+) at a fee of £80.

  • The fee for couples is £90 for 50 minutes, or £110 for 75 minutes.

The fee is the same whether sessions are face-to-face or online.

I maintain a few weekly slots at a reduced rate of £60. The reduced fee is available to those on a low income that have no significant assets such as a house. Eligibility is self-assessed.

If you cannot afford these fees, you could contact the Reduced Fee Service at Number 42 Psychotherapy and Well-being.

I have decided not to register with healthcare providers such as BUPA. My contract is with you, and I do not take on any duties to others. I am happy to provide invoices to you on request, which you may be able to submit for reimbursement from an employer or insurance provider.

There are three things we cry for in life: things that are lost, things that are found, and things that are magnificent.

Getting started

Coming to therapy can feel like a big decision. I try to make it straightforward.

Initial appointments are full, paid 50-minute sessions to give you a clear idea of what I offer in practice. I hope to hear what brings you, and answer your questions. I will listen carefully and address any concerns. I may ask about your family and cultural background, your support network, experience of psychotherapy and keeping you and others safe.

I can say something about myself, how I work and its relevance to you. I will speak about the terms of our work particularly regarding cancellation, confidentiality and payment. If you wish to proceed, we then meet weekly in a slot reserved for you in an open-ended agreement.

You are free to leave at any time, though it is better to plan the ending. I ask that you commit to at least one closing session once you have decided to finish.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions large or small: I welcome the enquiry.
