Frequently asked questions
Can I speak with you before I decide to have sessions with you?
Yes, absolutely. I offer a free 20 minute chat over the phone or online.
Do I have to come every week?
No, you can come when you want. Although many people decide to come once a week for a while, others prefer to come once a fortnight or on an ad-hoc basis. You don’t have to commit yourself to a set of sessions or a length of work with me. We see as we go along how you are progressing and what you want to do.
Do you give advice or techniques?
I can give techniques to manage anxiety and panic attacks, to manage worry, to reduce nightmares and to address unhelpful thinking, but I will never tell you what you should do. We will explore your options together and this will help you to make choices based on what makes most sense to you.
What experience do you have?
In over thirty years of practice I have seen many people from different backgrounds, religions, ages and sexual orientations all bringing different issues, for example depression, anxiety and stress, loss and bereavement, relationship issues, domestic abuse, being bullied at school or at work, having had to withstand bad treatments and violence in their childhood or adulthood, finding it hard to be a parent, coping with infertility, dealing with IVF.
Do you offer lower cost sessions?
I sometimes have places for a lower fee depending on availability, please book a 20 minutes free chat so we can discuss what you require.
