Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions Answered

Below you’ll find answers to some of the more common questions I’ve received. Read on to learn more about my services and what I’ve done to help my clients in pursuit of their goals. If you feel like you didn’t find the answer you were looking for, feel free to contact me for more information. I’m always happy to hear from people who are interested in therapy.

What is therapy?

What is therapy? It’s a broad umbrella term for an activity that brings about therapeutic change, relief, acceptance, or empowerment to pursue a goal. There are lots of different types of therapy, called approaches, much like there are different musical genres, literary styles, or ways to express yourself. 

My style of therapy is called integrative, meaning that I have a core model into which I integrate other approaches. My core model is person-centred, and into it, I integrate a variety of other approaches. In my style of therapy, you are the lead, and I am the follower, and the key ingredient of therapy is a trusting and secure relationship between the therapist and the client.


It is within the safety of this relationship that you can explore and exercise your true authentic inner voice.

What are my fees?

My fee is £45 per therapeutic hour (50 minutes). Concession rates are available to key workers and to students. Please let me know if you fall within that category at the time of booking.


You can pay by cash or card at the end of the session. BACS payments within 24 hours of the session can also be made if that is more convenient.

How long will it take?

There isn’t a single answer to this question. It will depend on life’s circumstances, the nature of the issue or aim you bring to therapy, and the resources available to you. It is also worth noting that therapy isn’t the panacea for all ills and that nearly a quarter of all people are not responsive to it. Everyone is different and takes their own path to healing.

Some people sprint while others amble. There is no right amount of insight for everyone. Having said all that, life’s practicalities may stand in the way of long-term therapy. Let me know how many sessions you can commit to, and we will work together to accomplish this.


My aim is to work with you for as many sessions as necessary and not one more. If it looks like you are ready to leave, I will raise this with you, and we can decide where to go next. Lastly, if you feel like therapy is not for you, or that I am not the right therapist for you, let me know and we can work out a way to get you the right support. You, my client, are at the heart of what I do. Your wellbeing is paramount and my aim is to deliver therapy and furnish you with tools that you can use long after our work has ended.
