Consultations & Fees
Initial consultation : At the first meeting James will consult with the client in order to decide whether psychotherapy or counselling would help and, if so, to agree a course of sessions. If not, he will help the client find a more suitable person such as a psychiatrist, cognitive psychologist or other professional. The initial consultation takes about an hour. It can usually be arranged within a week.
Further consultations : Each session usually last 50 minutes. They take place regularly over an agreed period, usually at the same time each week.
Fees : The cost of a consultation ranges from £50 to £85, depending on time of day and personal circumstances. There may be some special low-cost spaces reserved for students in full-time education or low earners.
Consulting room : James has his own private consulting room in Clapham. There is ample parking nearby. It is a two-minute walk from Clapham Common underground on the Northern Line.
