How the Therapy Works
My main practice is based at Number 1 Harley St. I also work from a beautiful houseboat in Kings Cross.
If you are interested in therapy for yourself, your family, or just for your child, please contact me here to book an appointment. I offer a free consultation, after which we can decide if I am able to help you. We will discuss payment during this consultation. I aim to be as accessible as possible and so if the full fee is not possible for you then we will discuss what you can afford and we will go from there (see 'Gift Payment' below). A face-to-face assessment will usually be offered as the next step.
I also offer therapy by Skype or over the phone. Many people ask if therapy can work, if not face to face, and my resounding experience is absolutely yes. Virtual therapy is as effective as face-to-face therapy. See a CNN Health Report on the research here. I have worked successfully with adults and also with adolescents over Skype.
I am very conscious that the economic system we have been living in is coming apart at the seams. There are new economic models emerging (based of course on older models we forgot about) which hold far greater promise for our wellbeing, indeed for our survival. If you are at all interested, there is loads of interesting ideas and alternative systems stuff here and here and here and finally here.
For those who feel inspired to work together, but can genuinely not afford the standard fees, I have limited spaces available for low-cost sessions with gift payment as an option. Gift payment is for those who, after the experience of working alongside me, can make a gift as an expression of their gratitude. The true spirit of the gift says that a gift should only be made when the individual feels called to do so, based on a genuine feeling of thankfulness. It is important to let go of any guilt-laden feelings of 'I should'. We are all born with an innate capacity for gratitude and generosity. I in turn am always deeply grateful for the opportunity for us to work together to alleviate suffering and find inner peace and deep fulfillment.
The gift can take the form of money, but can also be offered in the forms of goods and services. What might be an appropriate gift often emerges naturally in the course of a session or series of sessions.
