I offer online therapy and community-based online psychedelic/expanded-states integration groups Sessions are offered weekly, fortnightly or monthly The first step would be to book an Initial consultations with me online. During this telephone/video call we can discuss: - What is bringing you to seek support at this time and what you hope to gain from therapy - An introduction to the way I work and what you can expect from engaging in therapy with me - Any questions or concerns you may have about engaging in therapy - I will also assess whether or not I can offer the right service for you, and we can get a sense of whether or not there is a good "fit" in working together. If we decide together that your needs would be better served elsewhere, I will do what I can to recommend a more suitable service or therapist to meet your needs, and I may be able to provide an onward referral if necessary.
