Frequently Asked Questions & Fees

What can I expect at the first appointment?

I will ask questions about your main difficulties and we will complete some questionnaires together so I can gather some more information from you. You can also ask any questions you may have. I will then send you consent forms and a therapy contract to sign and return to me.

What will happen in the sessions?

At the beginning of each session, we will plan what to work on that day. This will be in line with the goals that we have agreed together in the assessment meeting. At the end of each session, you will decide on a task or skill to work on until we next meet. Evidence has shown that this practice can significantly improve how you feel in the short term, and give you vital tools for the future once therapy has ended.

What are your fees and how can I pay?

I offer a free initial 15 minute telephone consultation. After that, my fee is £90 per 50-minute session. Fees are payable by bank transfer at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment. I offer reduced fee sessions for students or those on a low income, so please do contact me if this applies to you. (Please note, I will ask for proof of your status.)

When can I have my sessions?

Please contact me to discuss your situation and we can try to find an appointment to suit us both.

What platforms do you use for sessions done by remote consulting?

I use the Zoom platform. To join the session, you just have to click on the link in your appointment email.

Do I need any special equipment for secure online video-conferencing?

You will only need a computer, tablet, or smart phone. Using a headset or earbuds can make your call more private and improve call quality.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you let me know that you need to cancel sooner than one working day (24 hours) ahead of your appointment, there will be no charge and we can re-schedule. Outside of this cancellation period, you will be liable for the full session fee. Please note that weekends and bank holidays are not classed as working days.

Will you keep my information confidential?

I am legally bound to protect your information and cannot share it with others unless I am worried about your safety, or that of others. I take your data protection very seriously and abide by the BABCP professional practice guidelines.
