Therapy Fees

harley street room Achieving Balance, I offer therapy and counselling services at competitive rates for people in the London area. We start with a free, 20-minute telephone consultation, where we discuss any queries you have about my practice, briefly outline your issues and both decide whether my therapeutic approach is suitable for your needs.

In your assessment session we explore what brings you to therapy and any relevant background information, then work together to work out the best approach and number of sessions needed to reach your therapy goals.

Unlike other therapy practices, I accept card as well as cash payments. I am also a recognised provider and approved therapist with many health insurance companies.
