1. How do we begin counselling / psychotherapy?



Once you submit your intake form, found at the bottom of my counselling & therapy page, we will book a free 20-minute phone or video introductory call. You will be invited to share a little about what's going on for you, and you can ask any questions about the counselling & therapy process or how I work. You must feel comfortable with your choice of counsellor or psychotherapist, so this initial call will help you get a feel for how we connect.


We will book your first 90-minute introductory session if you wish to continue. During this session, you can tell me about your issue in more depth, and I will want to know more about your background. You will also experience my work style, enabling you to decide whether you wish to commit to a working agreement. At that point, any outstanding questions you might have about my contract (to be read beforehand) will also be answered.


At the end of the first session, you will be asked to decide within a week if you wish to commit to working together. I can offer you a weekly slot at the same time every week that will be just for you (I offer some flexibility wherever possible if you need to reschedule once in a while). Once the working agreement is set, we will start working towards your goals. I regularly invite reviews of the work to check in with your progress and needs along the way.

2. How do we meet, how long is a session, and how much does it cost?


I offer one-hour online sessions via Zoom or in person in a treatment space in Nunhead (SE15 London). Please note that I am under ongoing supervision by accredited supervisors. All your personal information is kept secure and confidential. My current rate is £65 per weekly 60-minute session and £90 for the introductory 90-minute session. I kindly request payment before each session is scheduled.  



3. How long does psychosynthesis counselling / psychotherapy last?


There are no set timeframes for counselling/psychotherapy. Each therapeutic relationship is unique. I work mainly with clients seeking long-term work (6 months minimum) to ensure integrity and stable results. The contract is open-ended. However, I am also happy to work with a short-term approach in which we concentrate on a particular issue and agree on a number of sessions.


Along the way, I offer regular reviews where we reflect on your progress and establish future courses of action. When you're ready to end counselling/psychotherapy, I require at least three weeks' notice. This period will support you in tying up loose ends and reflecting on the wonderful work we will hopefully do together.
