Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay?
Whichever method is easiest for you.
Most people pay me by electronic bank transfer, for which I give you details when we book our first appointment. But cash or cheque is fine too.
I send receipts for each payment.
When do I pay?
Some people pay months in advance. I ask you to pay at least 24 hours before each session.
Where & When
Where do you work?
In 2 locations: central London, WC1, opposite the British Museum, and in Wandsworth, SW18, close to Wandsworth Common.
See map on contact page here.
What times can you see me?
Mondays and Thursdays in SW18, 8am – 8pm; Wednesdays in SW18 9 - 11am; WC1, 1 – 8pm. Sessions are weekly and 50 minutes long.
What if I need to cancel or miss a session?
I ask for 24 hours’ notice, otherwise the full charge is payable.
How many sessions do I/we need?
I have worked successfully with some couples in short-term focussed therapy for as little as 4 sessions but most people come for 6 – 12, with many choosing to work longer-term.
Can I see you alone and then with my partner/family?
Yes I always see each person of a couple for at least one individual session; I can’t see one client alone more than 4 times without then also seeing their partner or other family members.
Obviously for individual counselling I see you alone, but if you decide you’d like your partner to join you, the same rule applies: I can’t see your partner with you unless I’ve only seen you individually 4 times or fewer.
What happens in a session?
We explore areas that are troubling you. I don’t tell you what to do but rather help you find new ways of dealing with problems. See the Therapy page for more details.
