Initial Consultation Session
If you decide that that you would like to have an initial meeting with me, we will meet for a consultation session during which you will have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about therapy, the way that I work, or anything else that is important to you. This session will also enable me to develop a detailed understanding of the problems that you wish to address in therapy and we can discuss the likely content of subsequent therapy sessions.
I usually provide psychological therapy sessions on a weekly basis, with each therapy session lasting for 50 minutes. However, if you wish to meet either more or less frequently, this can be arranged.
Progress towards achieving your personal therapy objectives will be monitored on an on-going basis and will be reviewed regularly. This process is used to ensure that our work is effective and is the basis for determining how many therapy sessions may be required.
If you are paying for therapy sessions yourself, the standard fee for either an initial consultation or therapy session is £120, payable by direct bank transfer.
Alternatively, if you have a health insurance policy, you may be able to use this to fund psychological therapy sessions in accordance with the relevant terms and conditions of your particular policy. Please see Box 2 for a list of the UK health insurance providers that I am currently registered with.
