Sessions and Fees

I offer short term counselling and longer term psychotherapy, generally on a one-to-one basis.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE ONLINE SESSIONS AVAILABLE (SKYPE OR PHONE) DURING THE COVID-19 PERIOD.

Some people prefer to establish a time-frame for the work at the outset; others prefer to allow the therapeutic relationship to develop and deepen over a longer period of time. There is no right or wrong way.

Boundaries are important in therapy. Sessions last 50 minutes, and take place in the same place and at the same time each week. I let clients know in advance of any impending breaks, and issues of confidentiality and missed sessions are clearly explained from the start. Please also note that any data stored by me (eg your name, address, email, phone number, GP details etc) is strictly in compliance with new General Data Protection Regulations.

I adopt the standard practice in psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy of charging for missed or cancelled sessions (unless otherwise agreed). This policy is undertaken as therapy is a commitment by both parties, and as such the session time is exclusively allocated to the client and not re-allocated in the event of absence. Session fees range from £50-£70 according to income, and can be discussed in more detail at the first meeting. An initial session cost £60.
