Initial Telephone Consultation

I think that a good starting point is for us to speak over the phone initially so that we can have a conversation about some of the difficulties you, or your child might be struggling with. I can answer any questions you may have, and we can think together about whether I am going to be the right person to help.


The assessment involves us exploring your/ your child’s strengths and difficulties in more detail, thinking together about how these difficulties might have developed over time and what might be keeping them going. I also try to get a sense of how the difficulties are understood by other members of the family. The assessment helps us to collaboratively agree a plan for therapy.

Therapy sessions

If you/ your child chooses to work with me, we will decide on a time to meet that fits for both of us. Sessions are usually 50 minutes long and are normally arranged for the same time once a week, where possible. Initially, we will agree on a set number of sessions, usually six, and possibly extend the therapy if needed. We will review sessions regularly to ensure you/ your child feels that they are getting the most out of therapy and you are not tied into any commitment.
