I offer individual face-to-face appointments as well as telephone counselling for those who can not attend sessions or live far afield.
Individual face-to-face sessions take place in Richmond (Surrey), which is easily accessible via the District Line and approx 20 minutes by British Rail from Waterloo. I offer daytime and evening appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; on Saturdays between 1000 and 1200.
My practice is based in central Richmond, opposite the station in Parkshot House, 5 Kew Road, Richmond, TW9 2PR. The location offers a variety of public transport links with London (20 mins from Waterloo) and Surrey as well as public parking. The building has disabled access.
The fee: For clients diagnosed with cancer and on benefits the session fee is £55. For all other clients the normal fee of £65 applies.
Payment is by cheque or cash at the end of each session. I provide a written receipt upon request. Payment for telephone counselling would be via bank transfer.
The number of sessions would depend on your goal from therapy (eg accompany you through treatment, help prepare you to return to work, help come to terms with limited time you may have to live). We would discuss this at our first meeting. The length of therapy can be reviewed as appropriate. You are free to change your mind at any time.
The session length is 50 minutes.
The session schedule is usually weekly at the same location, on the same day, at the same time. Depending on your circumstances this would need to be flexible, and this would be discussed when we meet.
For cancellations I usually request 48 hours notice. Where less notice is provided the full session fee applies. However, depending on your personal health circumstances cancellations at short notice may occur. For these reasons I would wave the fee and aim to offer an alternative slot.
