Booking:

Please note that all contact is by appointment only, and appointments must be requested via website forms and booked by email. Unfortunately my timetable doesn’t allow me to book appointments or informally discuss matters by telephone. Making an appointment to have a no obligation Introductory Meeting allows us time to discuss your concerns in detail to see if it’s possible for us to work together collaboratively towards your aims. There is no pressure or expectation on you to continue beyond this meeting. When available appointments are listed above, please click on the one you want which will take you to the relevant request form. Appointments are given on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Stephen provides a unique service in psychotherapy with in-depth work that you might not get elsewhere. He really opens your mind to new ways of thinking and dealing with the stresses of everyday life and past trauma. I appreciate his honesty and patience. I also love that he teaches meditation which is something I have been interested in for years but never got around to learning. It was great to have a session purely about meditation and I’m sure I will be back for more. Thank you again!” ~ testimonial by N.K.

Please Note:

Booked sessions are non-refundable but can be rescheduled once with more than 48 hours notice.

*Please don’t request appointments for other people. Psychotherapy relies upon patients having strong personal motivation to change, and their ability to provide information, attend sessions reliably, and fully engage in the work without being prompted by someone else are all essential parts of the communication, assessment and psychotherapy process.

How the Waiting List works 

In order to provide the best service to motivated people in genuine need, a maximum of two offers of appointment are made before prospective patients are removed from my waiting list:

1st offer declined: moved to 2nd position on waiting list

2nd offer declined: removal from waiting list

Any offer or email ignored: email is spam blocked

*Spam 

Persons who ask for waiting list places, appointments or services but who then ignore emails sent to them or repeatedly decline appointment offers are assumed to be spammers and are automatically added to website and telephone blocking lists to prevent wasting valuable time that is needed for legitimate patient enquiries. If you don’t receive a reply to your request within 24 hours or you think your email has been spam-blocked by the website email me direct.
