Fees

Prior to engaging in therapy, I invite you to engage in a 15 minute free online consultation this will give us a chance to briefly chat.

For you to see if I would be the right therapist for you and for me to understand a little more about you.

There is no obligation for you to work with me after this, I have just found that it is great starting point for our therapy journey to start.
