To help you decide if you would feel comfortable and confident in working with me, I invite an initial telephone conversation to talk through any questions you might have. face to face sessions are typically arranged to take place at:
Metered street parking is available at the front of the building. Free parking is available on adjacent Waverley/Priory Road. Please ring the entrance bell for ‘Ahead Psychology’ inside the porch of the left-hand building, we are located on the first floor. We are also a short walk from Kenilworth Train Station (see map).
On-line therapy sessions and supervision are also offered through a variety of video conferencing methods. These accessible sessions are available on a standalone basis or in combination with face-to-face sessions, for example for students at university or those working away from home.
Individual therapy and supervision sessions typically last 50-60 minutes, groups will be longer but will include a break. Consultation services and Training sessions vary by individual negotiation.
After getting to know you, sessions will often include experiential and mindfulness based exercises. Values based activities will also often be agreed in session for you to complete at home to facilitate your recovery. What we discuss is confidential, unless there is concern that you, or someone else might come to harm, in which case a safe plan of action will be agreed with you. This will be discussed more at our initial meeting. Sessions are regularly reviewed to check that we are ‘on track’ in working towards your goals.
Fees are payable at the time of the session, unless by prior arrangement with BACS preferred but cheques and cash also accepted. Cancellations before 72hrs are not charged, between 72 and 24hrs are 50% of the fee and full fee is payable if cancelled within 24hrs/do not attend. Fees are dependent on different need and will be discussed individually.
