Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

I can be reached to make appointments on 07903 525958. If I am unavailable you can leave a message and I will always try to return calls within 24 hours.
It is also possible to e-mail me at the following address benmankowitz@coupletherapy.co.uk

WHERE WOULD I SEE YOU

I see clients for counselling and couple therapy in West London at The Chesson Therapy Centre. The Centre is within walking distance of West Kensington tube station, and is particularly convenient for those clients living or working in Fulham, Hammersmith and Kensington. There is metered car parking usually available on the street. For a map Click here

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE AND WHAT ARE MY PAYMENT OPTIONS

I charge 70 for individuals and 90 for couples per 50 minute session. If required I will sometimes suggest longer sessions (75 minutes) with couples, especially in the early stages of therapy, and for these the charge is 130.
Payment can be by cheque, bank transfer or cash.

HOW LONG DOES A SESSION LAST

The regular session length for individuals is fifty minutes. For couples, I offer 2 session lengths, one being a 50 minute session length and a longer session of 75 minutes. The longer sessions can be more helpful in the early stages of EFT.
HOW LONG MIGHT INDIVIDUAL THERAPY TAKE TO COMPLETE

This depends on each individual client and can vary greatly. Whether the therapy is to be open-ended or time limited will be agreed between us in the first few sessions. It can be useful to have a number of meetings and then review to assess progress. Generally, a very specific issue can be faster to resolve than more complex problems that have occurred over many years.

HOW LONG DOES EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED COUPLE THERAPY (EFT) USUALLY TAKE

EFT is effective over 8-20 sessions, but can be longer depending on the couple's level of distress.

WHAT IS YOUR POLICY ON CANCELLATIONS

I require 48hrs notice of any cancellation, otherwise the full session fee is payable.
