  Booking appointments

For body psychotherapy we will need to have an initial consultation session so that we both can decide if we feel we can work well together. This consultation normally lasts 1 hour, and is an opportunity for you to ask questions about my approach and to tell me some of your story so I understand what you need. Unlike most therapists, I do not charge for this. For other treatments (such as Pulsing) you can simply book a session, although at the first session I will need to take some basic medical details.

Bodymind Integration is normally a double (2 hour) session every fortnight. It takes the bodymind time to process a bodywork session, typically 10 days. My experience is that the double session is the most beneficial, and that it is far better to have a 2 hour session fortnightly than conventional weekly therapy session of 1 hour (which is typically 50 minutes). Session length and frequency is something we can discuss at the initial consultation.

Working hours: I have 3 session slots per day, Monday to Friday:

Morning: 10am start
Afternoon: 2pm start
Evening: 6.00-6.30pm start

I do not work weekends.

  Fees

Initial consultations are free. Session fees are on a sliding scale of between £50 and £70 per hour according to your income.

Your income Fee
Up to £30,000 £50
Up to £50,000 £60
Above £50,000 (Higher rate tax band) £70

Pulsing is a 1¼ hour session, price £75.
