I offer a free initial 20 minute telephone consultation to discuss your needs.
If you decide to make an appointment, the first session will be an initial assessment consultation to help us get to know each other, consider goals for the work and plan your treatment.

Individual sessions last 50 minutes and cost £75.
Family sessions / Parents sessions last one hour and cost £95.
