Consultation Fees

What price to pay?

Our suffering can consume our time, our talents and resources; hold us in suspense or states of conspicuous inertia.

Where life circumstances warrant this; around times of tragedy or serious illness, for example, the question of analysis doesn’t necessarily arise. It is a major event that we somehow understand,  while it still involves considerable pain. 

In other instances, our symptoms are perplexing. We feel trapped with them and cannot understand why they arise. We may find a sense of strangeness in witnessing our apparent stasis in areas that we are, in principle, willing and able to take steps. We can observe that the impulse and the vector giving clarity and direction do not arise together.  The intellect says, "Go!" and the body says, "No!" Or the body, whether in its gross forms as speech and (re)actions, or subtle forms in affects and emotions) repeatedly goes where the intellect cannot fathom. 

Confusion around 'what we ought to do' arises from confining ourselves to deciding from the 'Other's' point of view. What we think of as the 'Other's' point of view may itself be many con-fused impressions fraught with unresolved contradictions and inconsistencies. This attempt to over-apply ready-made ideas to the originality of life's unfolding is a foundational issue that calls for nuanced exploration. 

The step of entering analysis implies a decision to explore the questions that the signal of our suffering raises. This procedure calls for attunement and precision across many dimensions, not least in what we are willing to give for access to clarity in our desire.

In praxis, the fee may count as a considerable price for one Analysand at a particular moment in their life while, for another, money in itself is not a prominent issue. The Analyst will be taxed no less for his/her temerity, as s/he is called upon to discover with each Analysand ways to make resonate that which is vital to them.

Initial consultation fee (Rapid Access Service): £70, (Concessions, £35)
Ongoing session fees: are agreed upon between each Analysand and their Psychoanalyst
