Services 


Services are offered in person in clinic, or online via Zoom. If there is a preference for online therapy, it is required that you have a private and confidential space where you can speak freely.


What is offered and how it works:

1) Initial Phone Consultation

A free one-off brief phone consultation is offered to get a sense of the current difficulties, the hopes for therapy and whether  the fit between therapist and client is right. 

2) Psychology Assessment & Plan

Following the phone consultation, then an initial assessment will be offered. An assessment involves exploring difficulties in further detail, gathering a personal and family history, exploring whether therapy will be helpful and to find out your hopes and goals. This will help to inform the plan for the course of therapy. 

3) Psychological Therapy

If further therapy sessions would be beneficial, it will be agreed together what therapy will look like in terms of frequency and format. 

Psychological therapy involves seeing clients individually, and if working with children or adolescents may involve family members if appropriate.

Therapy sessions usually last for 50 minutes.
