Please contact me by phone on 020 8446 6071
This is a dedicated phone line, please leave a message and I will return your call.
I charge £50 for each 50 minute session.
I do hold some reduced fee spaces.
The first session may last up to 1 ½ hours - this time will give us the opportunity for me to assess your needs to see whether we can work together and that we are a good match.
There is no obligation to return after this session.
During this session, or shortly after – if you would like to think about it, we can arrange a mutually convenient day and time to meet every week for short (12 week) or long term, open ended therapy.
You might not want to choose one type of therapy over the other initially but we can review after a few sessions and agree what is most suitable.
Counselling can be difficult to start with but hopefully you will find my demeanour and approach helpful and supportive.

By exploring this with a me you will hopefully be able to make changes for the better.
Where does the psychodynamic Counselling approach come from?
The Psychodynamic approach is derived from psychoanalysis, but usually provides a quicker solution to emotional problems. Through psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy, you can explore issues and talk freely, without being judged.
