Where, when, and how much

London Clinic

Where? My London clinic is based at the Kailash Centre in St John’s Wood. The Kailash offers a tranquil environment for therapy, and benefits from a staffed reception and a seated waiting area.

When? Sessions are currently available at the following times:

  • Mondays 4.45pm / 6.15pm
  • Tuesdays 1.30pm / 3pm / 4.30pm / 6pm
  • Thursdays 11am / 12.30pm
  • Every other Sunday 10am / 11.30am / 1pm / 2.30pm / 4pm

Please note that my availability will shift over time as I am working round study and childcare commitments.

How much?

I now offer a number of payment plans to make it easier to budget for a Ten Series.

Please note that I am one of only ten Certified Advanced Rolfers in the UK. My fee reflects my qualifications and experience, as well as the cost of practising from a rented space in central London.

A session fee of £100 or £110 is available as a commitment discount for those willing to commit to several sessions (chiefly of Rolfing) either via upfront payment or direct debit: £100/session for ten sessions, or £110/session for 3 sessions (or 4 sessions, in the case of clients taking sessions 4-7 of the Rolfing Ten Series).

Alternatively, my single session fee (for Rolfing, Embodiment Coaching, Rolf Movement, and TRE) is £120. If you are unsure about Rolfing, need only a single session (eg. TRE), are seeking an initial consultation without commitment, or are visiting the UK just briefly, this is a flexible option that reflects the additional time needed for initial consultation.

Upfront payment: £1000 for ten sessions, £330 for 3 sessions or £440 for four sessions. Ten-session plans should be taken within a year, ideally within six months. Three/four-session plans should be taken within four months.

Direct debit payment: can be made on a single-session/month basis (£100) or two sessions/month basis (£200), usually taken on the first day of the month. Please let me know if you need payments to be taken on a different regular day, as I can set this up; weekly payments of £25 are also possible. The first payment must be made prior to your first session, and can be taken upfront if you wish to get started sooner. Timing of sessions is flexible, but you should aim to complete a ten series within a year, if paying £100 monthly, or six months, if paying £200 monthly.

Gift sessions: A single session (£120) or package of three sessions (£330) of Rolfing is a memorable and unusual gift for friends, family, and colleagues. Three sessions are ideal to kickstart exercise health and fitness goals (eg. someone embarking on training for a marathon) and will often be enough to alleviate postural issues caused by working from home, such as lower back pain. Gift sessions include either a handwritten gift card to your recipient, posted within the UK, or an emailed gift certificate, as preferred. Gifted sessions can be taken flexibly within six months.

Post-Ten Clients: Once you have completed your ten series, there are options to continue receiving maintenance work, or changing focus to work on persistent issues in more depth. You may also like to come for an Advanced Series, usually of 5 sessions. An Advanced Series does not take a particular form, but is worked out as a project between us, based on your goals or concerns. It can be very helpful to return to or renew focus on a particular, longer-standing issue, or to have an advanced series around an important event or milestone, such as getting married or turning 50. Post-ten clients can also access discounted rates as above.

Luton Clinic

I have now re-opened in Luton (LU2), offering treatments on Monday and Friday mornings only (for now). My prices in Luton are: £100 for a session booked singly; £90 when three or four sessions are booked; £80 for commitment upfront to a ten series. As I am still recovering financially from the lockdown period, I am encouraging commitment preferably by upfront payment, or by standing order if that is not possible. Please email me to enquire.

 

COVID-safe working

Please be aware of my COVID-safe working practices before booking.

Get in Touch

Bookings have re-opened. Please make initial contact with by email to see my current availability or to be added to my waiting list.

Address

I am based at the Kailash Centre, 7 Newcourt Street, St Johns Wood, NW8 7AA.

The Kailash Centre is a short walk from St John’s Wood tube station on the Jubilee Line, and convenient for connections from Baker Street on the Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, and Bakerloo lines, as well as from West Hampstead Thameslink and overground stations. It is also just across the road from Regent’s Park, and on a number of useful bus routes.

There is some on-road parking in the area.

Other information

You are welcome to try a single session, but please note that you really won’t get a full idea of the Rolfing ten series from one session alone. Many clients find that Rolfing has an immediately noticeable and positive effect, but that’s not true for everyone (it wasn’t true for me, actually, when I was a client: my progress was slower and more cumulative). But that doesn’t mean that it’s not working.

If you are nervous about committing to all ten sessions (and given financial constraints I understand this entirely), I would suggest that you try at least three sessions.

It’s a good idea to have your sessions about a week to a fortnight apart, but the interval can vary and there are a couple of points during the ten session cycle when it can make sense to have a little pause (if you need to, especially to ease the costs a little). Overseas clients who stay in London for a few days at a time may like to book 2-3 sessions spaced over a few days, or a long weekend (eg. three sessions across Friday, Sunday, Tuesday). This can be a way to complete a ten series: sessions 1-3 in one block, sessions 4-7 in another, sessions 7-10 in a third block, spaced over, say, six months or longer. These intensive treatment blocks may be usefully consolidated with additional online movement coaching and review.

You may also find the information on my page ‘What to expect’ helpful.

Discounts: I am very often asked for additional discounts. My policy where discounts are concerned is evolving, due to some unfortunate experiences with people expecting a discount even where it was clearly not needed. I am running a small, time- and care-intensive business, and hire a space to work in London (because I do not live in London). I am occasionally able to offer a small discount in cases of genuine hardship, but I no longer have the flexibility to do this as I did previously. While a series of ten treatments is the standard way of offering Rolfing, many people with non-complex conditions such as lower back pain (with no complicating factors) will benefit significantly from even three sessions. Talk to me if you would like to try Rolfing but are unable to commit to a ten series.
