Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much does it cost?

    All sessions, including assessment sessions, incur a fee of £57.00 payable via bank transfer prior to the session.

  • What can I expect?

    I provide a confidential and safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.

    Sessions are weekly, and last for 50 minutes. Psychotherapy/counselling takes place on a one-to-one basis, in a private setting.

  • Where will the psychotherapy/counselling take place, what is it like?

    I work from Lichfield, Staffordshire (WS13 6BY); see the map.

    I am unable to offer a space to wait before the start of a session, and therefore ask that clients arrive on time.

    The consulting room is located on an upper floor, and is therefore not suitable for those unable to manage stairs.

  • What if I can't attend a session?

    Regularity and continuity are important in therapy, as they support the therapeutic process. We will agree on the days and times of your sessions and those times will then be set aside for you.

    The full fee will be payable on all arranged sessions where less than 2 days (48 hours) notice of a cancellation is given.

  • Do you see children?

    No. I am only trained to work with adults, usually aged 18 and over.

  • Taking it forward

    Our first session will be an assessment session, to assess our suitability to work together. Further assessment sessions may be required.

    If we decide to go ahead after the initial assessment session(s), we will then agree a contract of working which will outline the frequency of sessions (at least weekly), the time of the session, confidentiality, data protection, complaints procedure etc.

    All sessions, including assessment sessions, incur a fee, which is payable via bank transfer prior to the session.

    I look forward to hearing from you on 07805 620525.

    When you ring you may get an answer phone as obviously I will not answer the phone when working. Be assured that no one else will hear your message. I will call you back as soon as possible. Please let me know if, to protect your confidentiality, you wish for me to refrain from saying anything other than my name and that I called on your voicemail. If even this is inappropriate, then please let me know.
