About me and my therapy practice
I have worked as a psychodynamic therapist in GP surgeries and in private practice for over ten years, following a career in education. I work with individuals, normally face-to-face but presently online because of Covid-19. Consultations are for 50 minutes at a regular time each week which we will have agreed. There is no refund for missed appointments but I will try to re-arrange. I invoice monthly. If we decide to work together, I will ask you to provide contact details for yourself and for your GP, including a note about medication you may be taking for your mental health. We will think together about open-ended or time-limited therapy. A planned ending is part of the arrangement.
My consulting room is on the first floor of All Saints' Church, Military Road. This is a quiet space where we will not be disturbed although there are usually other users in the building. On the ground floor there are toilets and a waiting area. Four-hour parking bays are available on the road immediately outside.
My first session
This takes up to 60 minutes and is an opportunity for us to see if beginning psychotherapy with me would be helpful for you at this time. The standard fee applies. It commits you to nothing beyond the appointment. I will ask you to tell me something about yourself and what has brought you to this session now. You will be listened to attentively and respectfully. Your questions will be welcomed and taken seriously. We will aim to reach a decision together by the end, although sometimes a second initial appointment is needed. If we decide to work together we will arrange a time and a day for your therapy to begin.
If you contact me by email, text or phone, I will be in touch with you to arrange a time to meet and will be at the main entrance to welcome you on arrival.
