Sessions and Fees
Sessions are usually weekly, lasting between 50-60 minutes. I can offer you short term focused counselling or longer term counselling depending on your needs and how you wish to proceed.
This is your therapy and we will work together to get the best out of your sessions. We can adjust the timings along the way to suit your requirements. For example you may decide to reduce sessions to fortnightly depending on your progress or current situation.
We will regularly review our work together to ensure your needs are being met.
If you decide you'd like to continue counselling sessions after our first meeting we will agree how we will work together in the form of a working contract that will include such matters as what it is you would like to work on, fees, cancellations and confidentiality etc.
There is absolutely no commitment required from you beyond the initial consultation.
This is not a counselling session but rather a chance to meet up and discuss what you want from therapy. We will discuss whether I am able to offer you the help you require and to see if we will be able to work together. If you take up the offer of counselling the fee (£10) for this consultation is deducted from your first session's fee.
Initial consultation (between 30-45mins) £10 (refunded if you continue )
60 minute session £30.00
Counselling/Psychotherapy Students (not in receipt of an income) £20.00
I have a limited number of concessionary places; please talk to me about your needs.
I take cash payments on the day prior to the start of the session. Other payment types may be negotiable.
I do not charge for cancelled sessions as long as I have been given 24 hours notice or where there is a genuine emergency.
