Choosing a therapist to work with can be a daunting process and expensive if you want to meet more than one to find a good fit. To make it easier I offer a low cost introductory meeting.
My intention in offering an introductory meeting is to give you the opportunity to find out whatever you need to find out to make a decision about whether you would like to work with me. It gives us time for you to tell me about what you are needing support with, your reasons for seeking therapy, to ask any questions you may have, to get a sense of how we might work together and to address any concerns. It also gives you some time to get a sense of me as a person. Its important that you feel some kind of resonance, or ease, with whomever you choose to work with.
Introductory meeting (individuals and couples): £25
One-to-one: £48 per session
Concessions: I have a fixed number of concessionary one-to-one places for students and people with low incomes. If you are in need of a concessionary rate please let me know and we can discuss that during an introductory meeting.
Couples Counselling or Tango Couples Therapy: £55 per session
All sessions last 60 minutes
My private practice is on Rousham Road in Eastville, Bristol (BS5 6XW). There is free parking outside the property. It is easily accessible by bus and close to Junction 2 of the M32, making it easily accessible by car from outside the city. View on Google MAPS.
As well as face-to-face work I also provide online therapy for both individuals and couples. This may be a good option if you would like to work with me but you live too far away from my practice address or travel is difficult. In my experience of working with clients online for a number of years the feedback I almost always get is that it is as effective as face-to-face work. My main therapeutic approach, Internal Family Systems, translates particularly well to working online. However, online therapy is not suitable for everyone and we can discuss whether it may be suitable for you during an introductory meeting either in person or online.
