Psychotherapy is a unique form of conversation. It unfolds and deepens over time. Speaking about emotional pain can feel risky. Discovering the honesty and courage to put your experience into words can contribute to the development of insight, self-confidence and self-respect. Profound fears and anxieties can gradually assume more human proportions.
“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware,” wrote Martin Buber. Psychotherapy is such a journey.
You may feel that it is time to speak about your life.
To arrange an initial meeting to talk about your situation and to see whether or not I am someone you might want to work with, ring me on 020-8365 4628 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Psychotherapy requires a commitment of time, money and heart.
Individual sessions last 50 minutes. I see people 1, 2 or 3 times a week.
My fee for once-a-week therapy is £70 per session. Fees for 2 or 3 times a week sessions can be negotiated.
I charge for missed sessions. If you know in advance that you have to miss a session, I will do my best to find an alternative time during the same week.
I believe that psychotherapy requires the living presence of both parties. Therefore I do not do Skype or phone sessions.
I take two weeks holiday at Christmas/New Year, two weeks at Easter and normally three weeks in August. Sometimes I need to be away for a conference. My practice is to give people notice of holiday and conference dates several months in advance.
