The initial appointment is where I learn all about you!
We will discuss what brings to treatment; your history, lifestyle, motivations, struggles, and consider how we can work together to help you reach your goals. This process can sometimes require longer than a single 60 min session, and may be completed across the first few sessions.
Note: 90 min sessions have recently become available. Longer sessions may be suitable for initial appointments, if you have a complex presentations/conditions, or are needing more support.

At NFEB, we recognise there are many factors that contribute to our financial access, determined largely by systems of power that discriminate against race, perceived gender identity, sexuality, disability, immigration status and socioeconomic status, among many other overlapping sociocultural factors and identities.

If you are experiencing barriers to accessing care, we would like to hear from you to discuss possible reduced-rates depending on personal circumstance.
We are committed to providing a safe and empathetic space for people of all neurotypes, genders, sexualities, body types, disabilities, and cultural backgrounds. We respect the rights of non-discrimination, dignity, autonomy, and self-determination for every human being.
