Frequently Asked Questions

Do you work online?

Yes. At the moment, due to Covid19 restrictions, I am only working online or on the phone. Online therapy has many advantages in terms of accessibility and works well for some clients. I will continue to offer online sessions for those clients who prefer to work in this way.


How much do you charge?

Sessions are currently £45.00. I sometimes have some low-cost spaces available – please contact me if you would be interested in these.


How long will therapy last?

Psychotherapy can be long term and open ended, or time limited. This is your decision and is something we can review together.


How long is each session?

Therapy sessions last for 50 minutes at a regular agreed time. These are usually weekly but, if more frequent sessions are required, this can be discussed.


What is the difference between psychotherapy and counselling?

These terms are often used interchangeably. Despite some differences in training methods and theoretical approaches, in practice, there are many overlaps between the two.


However, psychotherapy tends to be longer term than counselling and has the potential to go into greater depth. An exploration of the relationship between client and therapist is also generally given more priority in psychotherapy.
