Where Are Sessions Held?

I am based in the United Kingdom and all sessions are held online either via Zoom, WhatsApp video or FaceTime.

Once your appointment is confirmed details on how to remotely access the session will be emailed to you.


How Much Do Sessions Cost?

For self-funding clients 50 minute sessions cost £100 each.

Payment is required at least 48 hours in advance of your session in order to secure the slot.

Payment can be made via bank transfer. Details of how to do this will be sent to you once you book your first appointment.

As well as self-funding clients, I also accept Aviva, Axa PPP, BUPA, Cigna, Healix & WPA health insurance.

I offer a FREE 15 minute telephone or video consultation, where you will be able to discuss your issues and ask me any questions you might have to see if you feel I would be the right fit for you. Please email me to book an appointment.
