Let’s get started
It is my aim to provide consistently high quality, personalised therapy and personal growth and mentoring at a price that is ‘reasonable’ to both you and myself. To achieve this I focus on keeping my business costs low and my levels of service high, and although face to face therapy is an investment, it can be very effective for improving the emotional quality of your life.
I endeavour to help people with as few sessions as is realistic and I provide many hours of additional audio recordings to listen to, this helps reduce the number of sessions required.
I would advise that the first session be 2 hours long when working with anxiety or OCD.

Free initial consultation
This is normally by phone, however, you are very welcome to have this meeting in my office, it usually lasts about 20 minutes and is an informal way of outlining your needs and discussing the outcomes that you are looking for and importantly, it allows you to ensure you feel comfortable with me before making a commitment.
Number of sessions required
On average I see clients between 3 – 9 sessions, however, this is very dependent of your problem and the length of time you have been living with it. Deep seated anxiety and OCD may need more sessions over a longer period of time.
Session frequency is initially weekly and then can be extended to wider gaps after the first three depending on finances, time and how you are responding to the therapeutic interventions.
Note: The work I do is NOT focused on you talking and talking about your problems and going over your past time and time again, I feel this just reinforces old patterns and revives unhelpful emotions. My style of therapy and education is based on teaching you new ways to act, new ways to think, new ways to connect with your emotions and completely new ways to interact with life and yourself. In fact, I do most of the talking for the first session or two as I give you dozens of new ways of recognising and understanding your problem, then I teach you the techniques required to move through them. This new way of being not only helps you to overcome your presenting problem, it also allows you to change other aspects of who you are and how you interact with life and those around you.
Monday to Thursday 08:00 – 20:00 (last session starting at 18:00)
Friday 08:00 – 17:30 (last session starting at 16:00)

The nearest train station is Milton Keynes (20 minutes away by taxi). If you would like me to meet you at the station and return you after the session I am happy to do this for a fee of £40. Buses do service Buckingham from Milton Keynes & Oxford via Bicester, Brackley and Banbury.
