fees and appointments
My private practice is based in Winchmore Hill, London N21, and I also run the Peer Support Programme and work in the Student Counselling Service at LSE in Central London.
I offer confidential one-to-one counselling, either short term, long term or open ended, and I have a wide range of experience working with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship difficulties, addiction, anger management, trauma, disordered eating, sexual and domestic abuse.
I have previously worked with Place2Be, providing emotional and therapeutic support to primary school children, within the NHS providing short-term counselling, and in a centre for addiction. Before my current role at LSE, I ran the counselling service in a secondary school for 5 years.
Sessions last for 50 minutes and take place at the same time each week, at a mutually convenient time agreed with the client. The purpose of the first meeting is to assess whether counselling is appropriate to your needs, and allows us both to discuss and consider the issues involved – this initial assessment session carries no further obligation. Fees are agreed during the first session and are usually reviewed annually. Clients in full-time employment can expect to pay £50 for a daytime session.
All information shared with me by clients is treated as confidential, and is never disclosed to a third party without their knowledge. However, if I am concerned that the client or another person is at risk of serious harm then I am bound by the BACP’s Ethical Framework to disclose this.
If you would like to arrange a time to attend an initial assessment, then please use the form on the contact me page, or ring me on 07876 751846.
