Frequently Asked Questions
An intitial assessment/consultation is a good way for us to meet and discuss what you would like to achieve from counselling. If we decide to work together, then we would agree a convenient time to meet on a weekly basis. We would review our work regularly to ensure your goals are being met. I work both short term and on an open ended basis, depending on what is required.
My regular rate for individuals is £60 per session and a session is 50 minutes long. I have a limited amount of reduced fee places depending on availability - please do enquire if you are on a low income or in receipt of benefit/s.
Couple therapy is charged at £80 for each 60 minute session and is generally booked for eight sessions.
Cancellation Policy: Once we have agreed to work together, sessions cancelled or missed by the client for whatever reason will require payment in full. This is a necessary policy which enables me to run a professional practice and provide you with the commitment of a regular weekly session throughout the duration of your therapy. During planned absences, such as holiday periods requested by the client, a 50% reduction is levied as a retainer to secure your ongoing position in the practice.
On an occasional basis, and with adequate notice, if you have difficulty attending your regular slot - providing we can mutually agree an alternative time during the same working week, there will be no additional charge to do this.
Please either email or telephone me if you have any further questions or would like to arrange a consultation.
