The sessions have a duration of 50 minutes and take place at the same time on the same day as agreed in the first session.
At an initial consultation, we will explore your current issues and enquire about your history, so we both can get a sense of why you have come to seek psychotherapy. The session is also an opportunity for you to see whether you feel this might be the right place for you, and to discuss whether a period of psychotherapy might be of benefit to you.
Sometimes we may agree to a second consultation session before agreeing whether to work together on an ongoing basis.
The initial consultation costs £70.
Fees will normally be discussed and negotiated during the initial consultation according to the individual's financial circumstances. As a guidance, these may be within the range of £60-£80. Concessions may apply for people on benefits or with low income.
