Prior to the first appointment, I am happy to offer a free brief telephone consultation to discuss what you would like help with and whether I could be of help.
Online sessions: I know many people will not have considered online therapy an option before and wondering if this format could work. Given this, if you’d like to make this free telephone consultation a video consultation to ‘test it out’, then just ask, it would not be a problem at all.
Following initial contact, all psychological therapy sessions (excluding EMDR / couples therapy – see below) are:
Weekdays/evenings: £100 per session (50 minutes)
A question I’m often asked is how many sessions I think will be beneficial. This can be tricky to answer because a lot depends on the nature of the difficulty. However, on average, treatment is between 4-16 treatment sessions. This is quite a wide range, so do feel free to contact me if you would like to have an idea relating to the issue you are personally struggling with.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)
EMDR is a treatment specifically for trauma and is split into two parts. The first series of sessions (usually 2-4) are £100 and last 50 minutes. The second phase of EMDR treatment involves sessions that vary in length, averaging at about 65 minutes, and so each is charged at £130.
Couples therapy sessions are longer sessions (90 minutes). This allows space for both of you to talk openly and not feel rushed. These sessions are charged at £175. If any individual sessions take place during the couples therapy process the price reverts to £100 (50 minutes).
In addition to self-funding individuals, I also treat those with health insurance. I am an approved provider for most of the leading health insurance companies including AXA, Aviva, Bupa, Cigna, Healthguard, PruHealth / Vitality Health, Standard Life, WPA and Simplyhealth. If your provider is not listed, please contact me. Treatment rates for health insurance differ from those for self-funding individuals.
