Frequently Asked Questions
Appointments are available from 8 am to 7pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in Balham, South West London. I offer sessions in person or online or telephone sessions for those further afield.. The initial session is a chance for you to talk about what has brought you to therapy and what you hope to gain from it. It is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have and get a feel of how we might work together. I will explain my policy on confidentiality, fees, cancellations and appointment times. If you want to go ahead and book further sessions we will talk about whether you'd like to set some goals and establish the initial focus of the therapy. I'm always open to your feedback and happy to hear about what does and doesn't work for you in the therapy. If you would like to continue with sessions, we will book a regular session. Each individual therapy session is 50 minutes long and takes place weekly on the same day and at the same time each apart from pre-arrranged holidays.
Tuesdays from 8am to 7pm
Wednesdays from 8am to 7pm
The fee for the initial 50-minute assessment session is £80.
