Joining me for therapy online couldn’t be easier.
Here is what you need to know.
What are the fees?
I offer a free initial phone consultation, so we can begin to get to know each other and to see if we can work together comfortably. Currently each session costs £55 or £40 for concessions – those earning less than £16,000 or counselling students. NHS staff are also able to have the £40 concession fee.
Fees are due by the end of the session by bank transfer.
Where to find me?
Face-to-face sessions are held in my therapy room in the heart of Wimbledon town centre, five minutes walk from the mainline station, Croydon Tramlink and District Line tube.
Walk and talk is held in a beautiful small park, also in Wimbledon town centre. There are plenty of benches so we can sit and talk too.
We can meet on Skype or Zoom from anywhere where you feel comfortable to talk.
The Northern Line (South Wimbledon station) is 12 minutes walk away.
Buses 93, 57, 131, 156 and 164 all serve Wimbledon town centre.
What days and times?
Sessions can be booked from:
Mondays 9.00am- 6.00pm
Tuesdays 9.00am – 6.00pm
Thursdays 9.00pm – 6.00pm
Fridays 9.00am – 6.00pm
What is the cancellation policy?
Please give at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel. If it is less than 24 hours, the fee will be payable.
If you come to the session under the influence of drugs or alcohol, we won’t be able to work properly, so I will bring the session to a close.
What about data privacy?
After every session I will make brief notes on paper, your full name will not be used. You are welcome to see your notes at any time. This notebook will be kept in a locked drawer in my office. When our work together is over, your notes will be locked in a safe on my premises. After 72 months it will be destroyed. I do not keep notes electronically.
What about confidentiality?
Everything you say will be confidential, except if I believe you are about to harm yourself or someone else, I will talk to you about this and I may have to get help, for example, from your GP, to keep everyone safe.
I discuss the work with my supervisor without using your name.
For matters around confidentiality and data protection, please do not record the sessions, but you are more than welcome to make notes.
I hold Professional Liability Insurance.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling (BACP) and I abide by their ethical framework to keep the work safe. The ethical framework of the BACP can be found here:
