I also offer my services online via a secure and encrypted web conferencing platform, with clients from all over the world, as well as local clients that prefer to work from the comfort and familiarity of their own home.

At the time of our scheduled consultation, all you need to do is to either click on the "Enter waiting room" button below or to directly go to the URL https://doxy.me/thelifeacademy and you will be taken to my online clinic space.

I offer coaching, counselling and psychotherapy in London. My office is at Islington/Shoreditch area, it is close to tube stations, and it has disabled access. More information about my London office can be found here.
I am always happy to facilitate requests for outdoor psychotherapy or coaching. Working in a natural setting can significantly help to foster qualities such as presence, mindfulness and receptiveness, which in turn can positively enhance the outcome of healing or growth work. Sessions can last anywhere from a few hours to days (personal retreats). The places that we visit are usually tranquil and not busy with people so we can have the opportunity to work in an environment that is relaxing, inspiring and promotes deeper concentration and introspection. For the ecotherapy appointments, we usually choose forests or beaches that are close to Edinburgh or in the Highlands . More information about ecotherapy can be found here.
What I do is to help people to heal and flourish by offering my attention, care, experience, knowledge and any wisdom I may have acquired in this life so far. My service to you is not a product, in the sense of a normal market transaction, so therefore the money that you offer is not because you are buying something from me. You cannot buy someone’s attention, knowledge, care, respect or warmth; these qualities are priceless. You also cannot buy the warm and empathic relationship necessary to help you to heal and flourish. When we work together, I offer you my attention, care and knowledge wholeheartedly and passionately, not because you pay me but because I care for your well-being, and because helping you to heal and flourish brings meaning and purpose to my life.I believe it is important for you to know that as a psychologist, psychotherapist and philosophical counsellor, I have undertaken more than ten years of continuous training at a post-graduate and undergraduate level, as well as many years working face-to-face and Online with clients from around the world. Additionally, I constantly invest money and time in furthering my education in psychology, psychotherapy and philosophy through formal academic education, continuous professional development, participation in spiritual training such as retreats, as well as through reading the latest scientific papers and books. So, your offering, in essence, makes it possible for me to devote my time to you and to your needs as well to study and reflect so that I continue to learn and be useful and effective.
My fee is £ 65 (or the equivalent in US Dollars/Euros) for a session of psychotherapy, counselling or coaching. This applies both to face-to-face (local work within Edinburgh and London) and online. I also offer longer sessions, such as two hours, half-day or full day sessions, including ecotherapy sessions in nature.
My fee for relationship/couples counselling and psychotherapy is £90 per session. Please note that at times during couples counselling, we will meet one-to-one (that is, one person only will attend), for these sessions my normal £65 fee applies.
First assessment session is 90 minutes and the cost is £90. Thereafter, each in-clinic neurofeedback session is £65. For home/remote based neurofeedback, the minimum recommended treatment plan is four months and the price is £260 per month. It is possible to pay by monthly instalments or to pay in advance with a 10% discount. This cost includes an unlimited number home based sessions per month, plus 15-minute phone or online consultation, per month. There is also the option for other people (family/friends) to train with the same system, with an extra £100/per additional person per month.
Please note that I do not offer concessions or lower fees. However, I devote a day per week, offering my services on a pro bono/no charge basis to people that are chronically unemployed, students that are in low income and not supported by their parents, and to refugees. If this describes your circumstances, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss whether we can still work together (please note that there is always a waiting list for the pro bono consultations)
