Christopher Hope MA, UKCP

Starting point


Consultations are always confidential from the point of your first contact with me. They are normally held in Bury St Edmunds, Hillcrest, 14 Northgate Avenue, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, IP32 6BB

My registered office is as follows: Christopher Hope, Suffolk Psychotherapy, Hillcrest, 14 Northgate Avenue, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, IP32 6BB. You can write to me at this address which is confidential and secure.

You can email me your enquiry using the form below. I will normally respond within 24 hours. You can also leave me a text message or call me on my mobile phone 07760 190794. I will then arrange a convenient time to call you back for a brief confidential discussion. This service has no charge. 

After you have spoken or contacted me and if you wish to book an appointment I will make arrangements to meet with you. I will usually offer you an initial one-hour consultation. This way you can decide whether continuing therapy will be helpful.
For all appointments I will require twenty four hours notice if a cancellation occurs otherwise a fee will be charged. An agreement as to how fees are paid will be agreed during the initial consultation I suggest to most clients that we agree six sessions initially including a review to decide whether we should continue for a longer period of time or whether another service maybe more helpful.
