Frequently Asked Questions
Beginning therapy – first steps
Contact me by email or text to arrange a first session online (Zoom) or in person. The first session is about getting to know each other, exploring what brings you to therapy, your hopes for therapy and how we might work together. At the end of the first session we will discuss whether to want to continue our work together. It is important that there is a fit between therapist and client.
How long and often are sessions?
What will happen in sessions / How will we work together?
Based on your hopes or goals for therapy and your preferences we may work on a focused and specific goal/s or a more open exploratory inquiry of a theme or issue.
You will know when it is right for you to end therapy. Endings are important. Ideally, we will discuss, plan and work towards your therapy ending together. If you decide to end therapy before a planned ending it is beneficial to have a final ending session.
We will regularly review our work together and reflect on your goals and direction for therapy.
Are sessions online or face to face?
I work face to face in Central London and online via Zoom or WhatsApp.
To work online you will need a stable internet connection and a private space where you can talk comfortably and uninterrupted by other people or pets. Using headphones can improve the sound quality and provides more privacy.
Fees and payment
Rescheduling & Cancellation Policy
I operate a one week rescheduling and cancellation policy, which means that I will not charge a fee if you give notice of one week or more. If you cancel with less than one week’s notice, I charge the full fee.
