I offer a concessionary rate to people who are unemployed or on a low income as I believe that psychotherapy should be accessible to everyone so please do ask me if I have any low fee spaces.
Q. HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
A. This can vary depending on what you’re going through and what you’d like to get out of it. Psychotherapy tends to be a long term process of up to a year or more, especially if you would like long term effects or substantial change to take place. Ultimately the decision to end therapy will always be yours, but we can work together to determine what might be best for you.
Q. HOW LONG ARE THE SESSIONS?
A. Sessions are either 50 or 90 minutes long.
Q. HOW OFTEN WILL SESSIONS BE?
A. Sessions can be weekly or twice a week.
Q. WHAT HAPPENS IN A SESSION?
A. Typically sessions are the two of us talking in a room. This will be a safe and confidential space where you will not be disturbed and your privacy is maintained. You can talk about whatever you like, for example; what brings you to therapy, what you’d like to get out of coming, difficulties you may be having.
Q. WILL WHAT I SAY BE CONFIDENTIAL?
A. All sessions will be confidential. The only person I will discuss the sessions with is my clinical supervisor, which is a requirement of professional practice. However, I will not reveal your full name or any other identifying details that may identify you or others. Any notes that I will take will be anonymous and safely stored in accordance with GDPR guidelines. The only reason that I may break confidentiality would be if I felt that your life or another’s life is in danger, or that there are serious child protection concerns. Unless it was not possible, I would always talk to you first and involve you in the decision to break confidentiality.
Q. IS THERE A CANCELLATION POLICY?
A. Once an agreement has been made there is a cancellation policy of 1 weeks notice. Cancellations short of this for any reason will be charged at the full fee unless we can find an alternative time in the same week to meet. There is no fee charged if the session is cancelled by myself.
Q. IS THERE PARKING OR PUBLIC TRANSPORT ACCESS?
A. The Hampstead Northern Line Underground station is a couple of minutes walk away. It is about a 10 minute walk from the overground Finchley & Frognal station. There is on street parking in pay-and-display bays which are free before 9am and after 6pm.
