Unfortunately, I am currently fully booked and not accepting any new clients. If you would like to be put on a waiting list for the next available appointment time, then please contact me.
Please read the following carefully; it'll give you the information you need to know before you contact me.
Why choose psychotherapy?
You can choose to go into psychotherapy for many different reasons, but some of the more common ones are:
- You need help in making sense of your circumstances.
- You feel stuck in repeating patterns of behaviour or experiences that you feel unable to break out of.
- You are trying to come to terms with loss or grief in its many forms.
- You have ongoing problems with forming or maintaining healthy relationships - in your family of birth, or in your interpersonal and/or work relationships.
- You are facing a crisis and you're unsure about what to do next.
- You are looking to find a more authentic way of relating to yourself and others.
How does it work?
My approach is based on the principles of psychodynamic psychotherapy - in other words, your current circumstances are intimately connected with your past, and are worked through in the alliance that we create together. Each session is unplanned and based solely on what you're bringing to the conversation that day. Dream-work will often play an important part of this.
What I offer: non-judgement, insight, and a time that is safely and wholly yours.
Please note: I do not work with tarot in psychotherapy sessions.
This is open-ended (i.e. regular and ongoing) work that asks for a time commitment of 50 minutes every week or two weeks, on the same day at the same time. Once you reserve that slot, it will be yours for the duration of our work together.
What does it cost, and when do I pay?
There is no up-front payment. Your initial session is free of charge if we choose not to work together. If we do decide to work together, then the initial session, and all subsequent sessions, are payable at the end of the month, i.e. in arrears. You are then billed at the end of each calendar month.
The cost is $50 per session for US clients, £40 per session for UK clients, and €45 per session for clients in the EU. (Any other currencies are by arrangement.) Fees are payable via bank transfer or PayPal. As with standard industry practice, you are billed for any missed or cancelled sessions, excluding leave that is arranged at least a month in advance.
Where does it take place?
On Zoom or Skype - so we are not limited by geography (only by potential time differences!).
What are my skills and competencies?
I hold a certificate in counselling skills from a UK psychodynamic psychotherapy training institute; I am a qualified death and bereavement counsellor; I have been in personal therapy for over 20 years; and I undergo weekly professional supervision with a Training and Supervising Analyst of the British Jungian Analytic Association.
