First Impressions Count
Whether in therapy or supervision, it is crucial that the client/supervisee and therapist feel right together.
I usually meet with people for an initial appointment, for which there is no charge. I meet with those who wish to pursue psychotherapy/supervision, for a second assessment session and agree a contract.
Normally I agree an initial contract of 3 months at which point we review whether working together is right and is proving valuable. Regular reviews of the work are built-in.
Individual therapy sessions are the traditional “50 minute hour” and are normally weekly.
Twice- or three-times-weekly, or fortnightly, sessions are possible.
I have been a psychotherapy and counselling supervisor for many years. Therapists from a variety of modalities seem to find a freshness and richness in reframing their work from a psychoanalytic perspective.
£65 per session – I do offer a limited number of therapies/supervision at a concessionary rate. There is a reduced fee for anyone who wishes twice/ three times a week therapy.
All psychotherapy and counselling work should be supervised; my own supervisor is a distinguished psychotherapist of many years’ standing. She has no personal information about the people I see.
Professionally, I am a Registered Group and Individual Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), through the “Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis College” (CPJA).
[If you are still interested in counselling or psychotherapy, but feel that perhaps I am not the right person for you, may I direct you to my wife, Catherine Rhodes, Catherine Rhodes, who is a UKCP Psychotherapist and a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor. Her manner of working is similar but perhaps less ‘analytic’. Catherine can be contacted on 07736 400 452 or firstname.lastname@example.org .]
