Appointments

Psychotherapy sessions can be offered on a short term basis, perhaps focusing on a specific problem. Often however, psychotherapy takes place over a longer period, so that time can be given to explore difficulties more fully.The psychotherapy sessions last for 50 minutes. They are offered
at various intensities- weekly or two or three times each week.


Having two or three initial Consultation sessions can provide an opportunity to talk things through, to explore whether psychotherapy is what you are looking for and what you hope you might gain.


Sometimes these initial Consultations can help in their own right to find a focus for understanding or help move things forward. But often they are the start of continued exploration and self understanding.

Covid-19

I am continuing to practise, but following government guidelines, am currently working only remotely by phone or video-linked Zoom sessions. Although this is a significant shift away from meeting in person, remote working can provide a very important and helpful therapeutic space and
enables therapy to continue despite all the uncertainty around us.


This way of working will be discussed with you during the initial consultation.
