1. WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
My current fee is £70 per 60 minute session.
The charge is the same, whether you are coming for individual therapy, supervision or a one-off consultation.
If you are a therapy trainee there is a 10% discount.
2. DO YOU OFFER SESSIONS ONLINE, OR ON THE PHONE?
Yes, provided you live too far away to come, I'm happy for us to work on Zoom or on the phone. And overseas clients are welcome.
3. HOW LONG WILL MY SESSIONS LAST?
Normally 60 minutes unless agreed otherwisses.
4. HOW DO I PAY FOR MY SESSION(S)?
Payment is per session - before or after as you prefer.
Please pay as follows:-
= Face-to-face sessions - Card (machine in room)
= Online sessions - Bank transfer (BACS).
= International Payment - PayPal or International Bank Transfer
5. DO YOU OFFER TRIAL SESSIONS?
Yes. The first session is always regarded as being 'trial' on both sides. This gives me a chance to see whether I think I can help, and it gives us both a chance to see whether the 'fit' between us feels right. There is no obligation to continue with further sessions if you do not wish to do so. This applies even if further sessions have been pre-booked. But please note that the charge for the initial session is the same as for any other session.
6. WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
For short-term clients and one-off consultations:-
+ 5 days notice or more .... no charge
+ 2-5 clear days notice ....half fee payable
+ Less than 2 clear days ..... full fee payable
For ongoing regular clients
+ 5 days notice or more..... half fee payable
+ Less than 5 days notice.... full fee payable
7. WHAT CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH SHORT-TERM THERAPY?
Clients are sometimes doubtful about what can be achievd with short-term work of, say, 6 sessions. Of cours I can't promise a full Jungian Analysis in such a short term. But by integrating my training as a Jungian with more modern styles of working such as internal Family Systems and Pesso Boyden Psychotherapy I have been able to help many clients find their way to resolve single-issue problems (some of them lifelong) or take the next step in their individuation journey.
8. DO I HAVE TO BRING DREAMS?
I love working with dreams and they cn offer invaluable information about what is happening in the unconscious. But you don't have to bring dreams - plenty of my clients don't, and there is more than one way of accessing the unconscious. Please click here for further information.
9. DO YOU INTEGRATE WAYS OF WORKING FROM OTHER SCHOOLS?
Yes. My philosophy is that the more tools I have in the box, the more I can offer. The two modalities I use most in conjunction with my Jungian work are Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Pesso Boyden Psychotherapy. These are especially helpful for short-term work as they usually enable us to find out what is going on underneath the problem very quickly. From time to time I also integrate ways of working from Focusing, Active Imagination, Gestalt, Psychodrama and Sand-Tray.
10. DO YOU OFFER ONE-OFF CONSULTATIONS?
Yes. Individual consultations are available. These might be to discuss a dream – or indeed anything else which may be important to you. Please click here for more information.
11. DO YOU OFFER SUPERVISION?
Yes. You must be a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist or analyst – alternatively a trainee with an accredited training programme. You must also have professional indemnity insurance. The fee is the same as for individual psychotherapy.
12. WHAT IS YOUR CODE OF ETHICS?
I maintain strict confidentiality and strong professional boundaries. I adhere to IGAP’s Code of Ethics and copies of this, together with the Complaints Procedure, can be obtained from me upon request. Alternatively you can write to the Secretary, IGAP, PO Box 22343, London, W13 8GP. I am also a registered member of UKCP (United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy).
