FAQ. ornaments

Frequently Asked Questions

How long would I have to go for?
Psychoanalysis is an open-ended treatment. You go for as long as it seems necessary to you to go. It's usually a good idea to discuss and prepare the ending with your analyst, but there are no contracts and you are free to stop at any point.

What is the difference between psychoanalysis and therapy or counselling?
Given the enormous number of very different therapies it's a difficult question to answer quickly! Analysts are unlikely to dictate certain courses of action. Instead the idea is to explore the material the person brings and to try to help them build their own solutions.

How much does it cost?
My standard fee is 75 a session, but I am happy to work with a sliding scale fee where appropriate. I also keep a limited number of low-cost places for people on low incomes, and I have a good database and can make low-cost referrals. If you'd like a low-cost place, please let me know in your initial email. If I'm unable to work with you myself I will aim to put you in touch with an available analyst.

How long is a session?
Sessions can last up to fifty minutes.

How many times a week would I go for sessions?
Between once and five times. Multiple sessions
