Introductory therapy meeting

Normally you will be asked to come for a no-obligation introductory meeting before starting a course of psychotherapy. This introductory meeting is an opportunity for us to explore what has brought you to therapy and allows us to get a sense for how it might be to work together.  If we proceed to regular therapy sessions together, then we will meet weekly, typically at the same appointment time.

Length and frequency of therapy

I offer both short-term (around 10 weeks) and open-ended therapy (up to three years). While we may agree a notional length to our work at the start, this can be revisited at any time. Appointments are weekly and last fifty minutes. This fifty minute session also includes any scheduling we may need to do for future appointments. Typically I do not see clients fortnightly at the outset, but it may be possible to meet less frequently at a later stage in our work together.


I currently offer appointments on Thursdays (online only) and expect to start seeing clients in-person on a Friday from November 2021. I currently have availability on a Thursday for regular online clients. 


I have recently relocated to London from Edinburgh and expect to start seeing new clients in-person from a central London location from November 2021. I also offer online appointments and these are usually on a Thursday.


Online: I offer a free introductory meeting. My weekly fee thereafter is £60 per fifty minute session.

In-person: I aim to publish my weekly rate for in-person appointments soon. I will start seeing clients in-person from November this year.

I review my fees in March each year and typically provide six months notice to my existing clients if my rates are due to increase. 

Payment is usually made by bank transfer.

General terms for individual psychotherapy 

The one page PDF below (click icon to download) outlines and expands on: the framework for my work with clients, my fees and cancellation policies, confidentiality, data protection and ethics. Normally we would both sign this document to indicate our mutual agreement regarding the general terms therein, as well as your consent with respect to my holding your data, as detailed in my privacy policy. Starting weekly work together also indicates mutual agreement and consent.
