Answers to Your Therapy Questions

  • Will my sessions be confidential?
    Yes, sessions are confidential but there are limits. If you were to pose a danger to yourself or others, I will have to break confidentiality and relevant parties would be notified. I will let you know ahead of time if I need to do this. Please note, as a registered psychologist I am required to have a supervisor oversee my clinical work, to ensure I am maintaining a high level of assistance to my clients. I will not share your identity, and my supervisor is also required to protect the privacy of all shared information.
  • How long will I be in therapy?
    I cannot tell you upfront how many sessions you require as this is a decision you have to make based on your current struggles and needs. I offer therapy on a weekly basis until things become more stable and clearer. After a period of sessions, you have the option to have ad hoc sessions, which we can discuss together.
  • Do you offer sliding scale rates?
    I offer a sliding scale rate for students. Please note, as of January 2024, I do not have any more slots for therapy at a reduced rate.
  • What are the benefits of seeing a private counselling psychologist?
    While I can appreciate the uncertainty of whether you should go private for psychotherapy, there are many benefits in seeing a private counselling psychologist, which includes: You can self-refer. You do not have to wait long for an appointment with me. You and I can tailor the treatment plan together so that it is unrushed, personable and meets your needs. You have the option to have a free 15-minute consultation to discuss your needs.
  • Can I use my health insurance to pay for therapy sessions?
    This depends on which insurance provider you are with and the nature of your policy. Please get in touch to discuss further.
  • What if I need out of hours support?
    For non-urgent issues, you can contact me via e-mail, and I will get back to you within 48 hours. If you require urgent help, please contact your GP's out of hours service or NHS Trust's crisis team. In the event of an emergency, please dial 111 or go to your nearest A&E.
  • How long is each therapy session?
    Each therapy session lasts 50 minutes.
