Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What's the first step?

I offer a free 10 minute 'meet and greet' by telephone or face to face, where we can briefly discuss the therapies offered. This is not compulsory. The next step is to attend an initial no-obligation consultation. During the consultation I will ask some questions about your difficulties and history and we can discuss together the approach that might most suit your needs. If I feel your needs would be best met by another service I am usually able to signpost people to the relevant or service.  

How long will therapy take?

It depends on the nature and complexity of the problem. Some issues may only take a few sessions. However, more complex problems can take longer. I tend to recommend an initial six sessions and then we can review and decide if any more would be useful and how we might make use of additional sessions. 

Attending weekly sessions is best, as it helps to maintain focus and progress. Fortnightly sessions may be considered in some circumstances.  

Where do we meet?

I have a clinical room at Barlow Moor Road, Chorlton, South Manchester which has a small waiting room.


If you would prefer online appointments, we can meet on Zoom, a free high quality and confidential video conferencing platform. I can send you an invitation to Zoom via email. 

Is psychotherapy confidential?

Yes. It is very important for me to respect your privacy and confidentiality. This is a vital part of establishing a trusting therapeutic relationship. I attend regular supervision. Both supervisor and myself abide by BABCP's Standards of Conduct Performance and Ethics:

What are the fees?

I offer an initial free 10-minute introductory meeting by telephone or in-person, to discuss the therapeutic approaches  I offer. 

Please get in touch to discuss the fee in detail.

*slightly reduced fees may be considered for those in financial hardship.

What if I need to cancel?

At the outset of therapy, we will agree a mutually convenient time to meet. each week. I strongly suggest attending the first 6 weeks of therapy consecutively. Cancellations within 48 hours of the appointment will incur a 50% charge of the session fee.
