Just about every variation of talking therapist is asked "how long will it take?" Sadly, the answer is "it depends" ... on the nature of the issue, how much progress you've been able to make alone, whether there's more than one issue involved. It could be a short as just two sessions - one to discuss the issue and the next to decide on an action plan, or it may be more complex and take longer. There won't be any rambling along in an unstructured way though, we will a programme in advance, but will remain flexible if we make better than expected progress. Any longer term work will be reviewed regularly and is also likely to involve taking breaks from consultations for reseach or reflection.
Consultations are generally 50 minutes in length, although I can offer a small number of 90 minute consultantions, together with some weekday evenings and the occasional Saturday morning.
My charges are :
- £40 for a 50 minute consultation
- £70 for a 90 minute consultation
Payment may be made on the day by personal cheque or cash, or in advance by bank transfer or PayPal.
Consultations are available face-to-face, or via Skype/telephone.
