Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where are you?
I work from two venues.
I am based at the NAOS Institute 3 Montpelier Avenue in Ealing W5 2XP. Please see map for details. This is about a ten/fifteen minute walk from Ealing Broadway station or it is near to E2, E9 and 297 bus stops. There is free off-street parking outside the NAOS Institute.
I also have a counselling room in Pitshanger Osteopathic Practice on Pitshanger Lane in Ealing. Please see map for details. The clinic is right on the E2 and E9 bus routes, a few minutes from Ealing Broadway tube station. There is also lots of free parking on Pitshanger Lane and the surrounding roads.
2. How much do you charge?
I charge £50/session. If you feel seeing a counsellor privately is too expensive for you, you could look at low-cost services such as EACS.
3. How long are the sessions and how many would I have?
The sessions last 50 minutes and are offered weekly. How many people have depends very much on how they go. Some clients decide they can stop after just a few sessions, some stay much longer. It will always be up to you to work out if you wish to carry on or stop counselling.
4. When do you work?
I can offer various sessions during the day and in the evening. Please contact me for further details.
4.How do I pay?
You pay after each session, either by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
5. How do I know what I say will remain confidential?
Trained counsellors and psychotherapists work according to Codes of Ethics drawn up by regulatory bodies. We are bound by strict rules on confidentiality. I always explain to people how confidentiality works before counselling actually starts.
