Do I need a referral to come and see you?

No – the most usual route to access therapy is self-referral, where you contact me directly and we agree to meet and discuss what you feel you need. However, I also accept referrals from General Practitioners and Employees Wellbeing Programmes.

Do you contract with your clients?

Yes – the contract covers issues such as confidentiality, cancellation policy, etc. If we are both happy to continue after the initial consultation/assessment you will be asked to sign the Contract. A copy of a contract is available on request.

How long will have to wait for an appointment?

My aim is to offer you an initial consultation , known as an assessment session, usually  within one week.
