WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY?
My approach is essentially integrative and relational drawing on psychodynamic, existential and archetypal psychology.
This approach allows an inner exploration, through looking at the past, present and future. This enables a process for self-discovery and change.
I often work creatively with dreams and images; and sometimes teach and use techniques to better cope with symptoms.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
Individual counselling and psychotherapy fees range between £70-£85 a session. Some concessionary rates are available. Sessions last 50 minutes and usually take place once weekly, although it can be twice a week in certain cases.
Please enquire for the coaching program.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
The duration of psychotherapy varies for each individual. Short-term therapy usually lasts for about three months, long-term therapy can last several years. This depends on the person's needs and goals.
We will discuss this during the assessment session.
WHERE IS YOUR PRACTICE BASED AND WHAT IS YOUR AVAILABILITY?
My private practice is located in the City of London, near Bank and Liverpool Street, and in Putney. Skype sessions are also possible.
I am available during the daytime and in the evening. I do not offer sessions over the weekend.
WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
Please contact me via phone or email. We will have a brief conversation and then schedule an initial appointment.
During the initial session we will discuss in more detail what is taking you to therapy and how we can work together to support you.
By the end of the session, we will decide the number of sessions, or agree on an open-ended contract. During this meeting, I will also tell you more about my approach, confidentiality and cancellation policies.
