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. It is also important for you to understand that I work with no more than five clients per day. This ensures that when we work together, you receive my full care, attention and empathy.
Additionally, I constantly invest money and time in furthering my education and learning new things 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.
Individuals: My fee is £ 60 (or the equivalent in US Dollars/Euros) for a 60-minute session of psychotherapy and counselling and £100 for a 60-minute session of coaching. This applies both to face-to-face (local work within Edinburgh and the US) and Online. I also offer longer sessions, such as two hours, half-day or full day sessions, including ecotherapy sessions in nature.
Couples: My fee for relationship/couples counselling and psychotherapy is £80 per hour for a 60-minute 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 £60 fee applies.
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)
