When you first contact me by email, text or voicemail l will get back to you as soon as possible to set a date and time for our first meeting. If you would like a brief phone conversation before booking an appointment just let me know in your message.
I will usually be able to see you within a week or two of your initial contact.
Our first session is a chance for us to meet and get a sense of one another, and whether we feel we’ll be able to work together. You can let me know what brings you to counselling, and what you’re hoping to get from it and we can discuss any questions you might have.
Once we begin our work together we will establish an agreement that will make clear the nature of the sessions and the boundaries that we each will observe — around confidentiality, cancellations, timekeeping, costs and a commitment to regular weekly sessions.
I am committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment and work mostly one to one on an open-ended basis.
Sessions and Fees: Usually we meet at the same time each week and sessions are 50 minutes. My fee is £50 per weekly session and £30 for an initial consultation.
Times and Locations: I work in Central Brighton at New Road Psychotherapy Centre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Central Brighton is well served by public transport and New Road Psychotherapy Centre is a short walk from bus stops serving the whole city.
I work at the Hove Clinic at 40 Wilbury Road, Hove on Tuesdays. Lots of buses run along Church Road which is a five to ten minute walk from the clinic and there is ample on-street parking nearby .
Accessibility: Please note that unfortunately at the moment neither location is wheelchair accessible.
