First Step for Individual Therapy
I understand that even though you feel like you need therapy, contacting a therapist can be stressful and daunting. Nevertheless, this could be the first step for you to proceed on a therapeutic journey towards a change in your life.
If you contact me, I will invite you to an initial assessment session in which we will explore why you feel you need therapy and what you want to gain from therapy, as well as discuss any questions you may have. This will be the opportunity for us to experience each other and check if we could be good partners in your therapeutic journey. For you, more specifically, it will be a good opportunity to experience and sense what it would be like to work with me as your therapist.
The initial assessment session lasts 30 minutes and is charged at £30.
What Happens Next?
If we both agree on working together for therapy, we will make a therapy contract after discussion on a few boundaries and have regular sessions until you would like to end.
Number of Sessions: This will depend on your needs and we can discuss this in an initial session. I work flexibly on both open-ended and time-limited (long-term or short-term) settings.
Term between Sessions: Traditionally it is considered to be ideal to have weekly sessions at the same time and day. Nonetheless, I am open to working flexibly on the condition which works for you. You may want more often or less frequent sessions than weekly (e.g. a session twice a week or biweekly), on which we can discuss in an initial session.
Fee & Payment: My fee is £70 per 50-minute session (both in person and online) and payment is expected by bank transfer in advance (minimum 12 hours) or by cash at the beginning of the session. I also accept PayPal; however, this is subject to an additional £2.50 to cover the PayPal transaction fee.
If you book more than 4 sessions in advance and prepay for the booked sessions, I give you a discount!
E.g. Book 4 sessions and prepay for £250 (instead of £280) -> Save £30
Book 8 sessions and prepay for £480 (instead of £560) -> Save £80
I also do offer a special discount for students who do not have any income and charge £55 per session.
Cancellation: Sessions cancelled with TWO days’ notice or less will incur a cancellation fee of £40.
Location: I’m located in Walthamstow, London E17. My therapy room is 5 minutes’ walk from St. James Street Station (Overground) and 15 minutes’ walk from Blackhorse Road Station (Victoria Line). Unfortunately, off street parking is not available and my room is not wheelchair accessible.
I also offer online sessions via the video conferencing platforms (e.g. Zoom, WhatsApp, etc).
For Couples Therapy
You can choose either a 50-minute session (£90) or a 75-minute session (£130). Please email me for more information.
