What to look for in a counsellor/psychotherapist

I appreciate that taking the first step to seek counselling can be daunting. Research shows that the single most significant factor in predicting the outcome of therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. To be able to trust and confide in the therapist, it is vital for the client to have a sense of safety and to feel comfortable. A good way to start is by picking up the phone and speaking to the therapist. In my case, if I am with a client when a prospective client calls, I will tell you via my answer machine that I will return your call as soon as I can to discuss what might be most helpful way forward for you. This is confidential; you do not need a referral from a doctor or GP to see a psychotherapist.

Accreditation

I am accredited with the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists), and I work to the UKCP and BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) codes of ethics.

Fees

My fee is £150 a session for individuals and £200 for a couple. I also keep a few lower cost spaces. You are most welcome to call me to find out more.

Can the cost of counselling be covered by my medicial insurance?

Most health insurance policies will allow you to claim back some of the costs for a few therapy sessions. I suggest contacting your insurance company for your eligibility and the length of work available to you. Typically, in my experience, American and Australian policies are more generous and more easily accessible than the British.

Additional Support/Referrals

Occasionally clients might request that their treatment include a confidential referral to a consultant psychiatrist for specialist advice on medication. I then refer them to Dr. Kamal Gupta who has a practice nearby.

Some clients choose this option over seeing their GP because nothing they discuss with me or with the psychiatrist goes on their medical records. Privacy and confidentiality are assured.

Location

My practice is centrally located near Marble Arch, and is very convenient for public transport. Marble Arch tube is a  5 minute walk and Edgware Road tube is a 7/8 minute walk. Taxis and buses are plentiful and the area is well supplied with parking meters. Paddington and Marylebone stations are close by. A map is on the next page.

Cancellation Policy

To help me run my practice efficiently and fairly, I will need to charge the full fee for appointments missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, apart from in exceptional circumstances. This allows me to assure availability for your next appointment.
