I understand taking the step towards seeking therapy is a significant decision for your overall well-being, and my aim is to provide you with the necessary information to make this process as comfortable as possible. My fee for each 60-minute session with last 10 minutes for notes is £67.50.  

Counselling students, including those that require a counsellor working in person-centred modality are charged at a flat rate: £47.50 per session. (Evidence from your training provider will secure this lower rate).

​Please note: You must be taking a core practitioner training course in counselling. I cannot offer lower rates to those studying psychology, hypnotherapy, social work or coaching at this time and your course must be one year's full time or two years part time where it is classroom based with at least 70% face to face tuition.

Contact with Your Therapist:

I'll reach out to you via text or email to schedule sessions.

• Please only use text, email, or phone calls for administrative matters to protect your confidentiality.

• If there are technical issues during a doxy.me session, I'll contact you to switch to WhatsApp.

• Before each session, I'll email you the codes to access the meeting.



• If you can't attend a session, let me know through text or email with as much notice as possible. If you cancel less than 48 hours before, there may be a charge.

• After a cancellation, I'll contact you to schedule the next session for the following week. Please confirm with me.

• If I need to cancel a session, I'll let you know and inform you of my availability for future sessions.


Changes in the Relationship:

• Online therapy may be challenging initially, especially with technical issues. (Only 18+)

• It might take some time to get used to communicating and understanding each other.

• The online relationship might feel different from face-to-face, but that's normal, and we can explore it together.

• We may miss the benefits of being physically together in the same room. Feel free to ask questions about how you and I are feeling in this setup.



• Online therapy isn't suitable for everyone, so it's okay to change your mind and wait for face-to-face sessions to resume.

• Adjusting to online therapy might be uncomfortable initially, so give yourself time to get used to it.

• After the session, take some time for self-reflection and consider how it might affect your day, as it can be draining.
