Who do you work with?
I work with adults and young adults over the age of 16.
I do not offer therapy for those with a recognised/diagnosed eating disorder.
How long are the sessions and what are the charges?
The average session is an hour, with 50 minutes of this being time for therapy and the last 10 minutes, checking in with you to ensure that you feel ok to leave the session, rebooking and payment. Sessions in some cases can be upto 90 minutes or finish after 30 minutes, this will depend what we have planned in the session and will be discussed beforehand.
The cost of sessions for self paying clients is £75 per hour. I am registered with a number of health insurance companies which depending on the type of cover you have, may fund the total cost of the session.
Do you offer home visits?
At present No, all appointments are online or conducted at my office
Can I bring someone with me?
In most cases we would encourage you to attend therapy sessions alone, however there may be occasions where there is therapeutic benefit from having someone supportive present. Please be advised we are unable to look after your children or dependants whilst you are in your therapy session.
How often are the sessions and how many sessions will I need?
Research shows that psychological therapy is most effective when carried out on a weekly basis. The amount of sessions is very dependent on individuals needs and their ability to put into practice what they have learnt in sessions on a day to day basis. We will have a set time within sessions to review how you think therapy is going and if you want to continue.
How do I know CBT is for me before booking?
I offer a 15 minute telephone consultation to try and address any concerns you have before starting therapy.
What if i need to cancel a session?
Unless in the case of an emergency, a minimum of 24 hours notice will be needed to change or cancel an appointment without charge. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will incur a charge as set out in the therapy agreement.
