Standard fee (UK bank transfers): £70/session.

Private Insurance fee is higher. Please discuss at first contact
Discounted or low-cost option
If you believe you would not be able to pay the full fee, please let me know. I will either offer you a discounted fee or sign post you to organisations offering low-cost therapy.
The discount applies from the second session onwards and the reduced fee is £55/session up to a maximum of 8 sessions.
You don’t need to commit to any minimum number of sessions and can stop whenever you feel is right for you.
Free Therapy Session for those who are unable to pay (See option 2 below)
If you are not able to pay for your session, please do not hesitate at all to get in touch. I will first offer you a ‘Single Session Therapy (SST)’ appointment and where beneficial try to follow it up with one or more booster sessions along with sharing free resources that you can continue to work on before seeing me for follow up.
Private Healthcare Insurance
I am a recognised provider with several insurance companies
Option 1: Regular weekly sessions (fully booked)
Many clients prefer regular weekly therapy to focus on a particular problem and it definitely has its advantages. If this is what you are looking for, we can match a weekly day and time that suits you. There is no commitment to take any fixed number of sessions.
Option 2: Single Session Therapy (SST) by appointment
Sometimes people just prefer an open-door approach where they can come for a session as and when needed.
In SST, the therapist and client meet with the intention of addressing the problem in one session in order to help the client to then move forward on their own. However, more sessions can be booked if needed.
SST appointments are also charged as normal. However, free SST session is offered with an administrative advance fee of £5/session to those who cannot afford to pay for the full or discounted rates for their sessions. The administrative fee has been put in place to reduce the chance of unattended sessions and encourage a serious commitment to booked appointments.
A short interesting animated video explaining Single-Session Therapy
It is important to mention that no one size fits all and some problems do require a regular commitment to make the most of therapy. A good example is OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) which would be addressed better with regular weekly sessions and completing agreed tasks in between the sessions. When option 1 is more suitable I will advise accordingly.
Brief Therapy Interventions
In order to meet this ever-increasing need of providing treatment within a limited time frame or with limited number of sessions, I have undertaken additional training to offer focused brief treatment interventions. For more details see Focused Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (FACT) under Training and Qualifications section of the ‘About me’ page. When offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with option 2, I apply the same principles of brief treatment to adapt therapy to fit the time I have with the client.
Working hours: 7 am – 3:30 pm on weekdays and half day on Saturday. Some evening options available on request
