Fees and Practicalities

Getting started with Psychotherapy and Counselling

It starts with your first contact. Feel free to call me or use the Contact Form on the Contact Page. I try to respond to enquiries as quickly as possible. Please check your spam folder if you email me and don’t hear back within 24 hours. 

The first time we meet will be for a simple chat and to develop a sense of what it will be like for us to work together. There is no right or wrong way for you to approach this, or indeed how you approach any future conversation between us, so please don’t feel you need to ‘come prepared’ or to present yourself in a particular way.

Deciding to begin a process of psychotherapy is a significant first step. Having made that decision, finding the right therapist for you is almost as important. It can sometimes be useful to meet in a preliminary way for a second time to explore any further questions you might have. Similarly, if I feel for whatever reason that I am not the right therapist for you, I will advise you of this.

Comments from former patients

  • Immensely helpful

    “It has been immensely helpful to have a safe space where I could talk freely. Giovanni has always had an exquisite ability to keep track of all aspects of my life, words and thoughts, as well as an amazing skill to see through events and feelings, cut through confusion and accompany me while I was realising many things about myself and my life, determining my improvement.”

  • Helped me to understand more about myself

    “I am grateful for the support,  understanding, advice, analyses you have brought me over the months we have been seeing each other. This helped me to start understanding more about myself and it was very helpful to have someone to share with, be truthful with, and get support and understanding from. I hope we can work together in the future”.

  • Thank you so much

    “Thank you so much for being such a great therapist that I respect…

     I know what this has meant to me."
