A therapy session is 60 minutes long. I normally request that clients arrive 5 minutes earlier. This will help us settle in well, make a cup of tea or coffee and begin our work at a good pace. Under the current circumstances, I work online using Zoom or telephone.
The fee is £50 per session. The fee is prepaid in advance of the session in cash/BACS – this means that the final session is already paid for.
My practice is in Selly Oak, Birmingham. There is free parking space on the driveway. The process involves the following steps: first you email/phone me to express your interest in starting therapy. Then I will kindly reply to your email/phone call and arrange with you a 20-minute phone conversation. This will help me understand what you are looking for and whether I am the right therapist for you. If we agree to proceed, we will arrange our first session and I will email you more details about the address, Zoom arrangements and the therapeutic contract for you to read before we meet. In our first session we will go through our therapeutic contract and discuss any questions you may have. We will also talk in some more detail about what you seek in therapy. If we feel that I am not the right therapist for you, then I will refer you to another therapist or service and this session will not be charged for. If we agree that we can work together, we will then arrange a weekly slot and the session will be charged for. Our journey has begun!
Sessions are weekly and usually at the same time. Some flexibility can be offered if you work shifts. At this practice I work in the evenings and Saturday mornings. I request a 48 hour notice in case of a cancellation.
