My therapy clinics are held in Hawkhurst or Tonbridge.  Therapy sessions are also available online via ZOOM / FaceTime or on the telephone.
The first session lasts slightly longer than subsequent sessions (one and a half hours) and depending on what is required, I will recommend the number of sessions at this time to help you achieve your desired outcome.
When I work with a minor (children under the age of 16) an adult is required to be present and I offer a free twenty minute consultation for any parent / guardian who wishes for their child to have therapy so that you know what is involved in the process. This can be done over the phone if preferred. 

All therapy is treated with sensitivity, empathy and in the strictist confidence.
