Frequently asked questions

I offer a free consultation telephone session within which you can briefly describe your difficulties and we can decide together if CBT sounds like the most suitable therapy for you. If you decide that you do want to pursue therapy with me we will arrange an initial assessment session.

I offer prospective clients an initial assessment session. This provides us with an opportunity to consider whether we proceed with regular CBT sessions. It is just as important that you feel comfortable with your therapist as it is he or she feels able to work with you. At the end of the first session, we would arrange to meet for an approximate agreed number of sessions. There is no obligation to attend all the sessions arranged and you are free to terminate your appointments at any time. A review session takes place at the end of the agreed number of sessions where we jointly assess progress and what further action, if any, may be needed. If we decide not to work together I try to provide you with details of alternative practitioners or agencies. Sessions generally last for 60 minutes and if you are late arriving we will still need to finish at the same time so as not to delay the next client.

I maintain strict standards of confidentiality and your data is kept securely.

Typically we would expect treatment to last for between 6 and 20 sessions. This, however, varies on a case to case basis.

You can review the process at any time if you feel progress is not being made.

Yes I offer online and other remote therapy sessions. Sometimes this can be offered as a compliment to face to face Therapy or as a course of treatment itself. Research has shown that Remote Therapy can be as effective as traditional face to face Therapy but allows for more flexibility and convenience.

A full 48 hours notice is required for cancelled appointments, otherwise, the full fee is payable.
