My standard fee for individual sessions of 50 minutes is £60.
The fee for Saturday sessions is £70.
I offer discounts for clients paying for six or more sessions in advance, and for sessions ending before 4pm on weekdays.
I currently have some available session space on Monday afternoons and on Thursdays.
I occasionally have a free slot on a Saturday morning so please do ask.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What happens when we first meet?
At the first meeting, I will ask some questions about what brings you to counselling at this time, what your current situation is and what you’d like to change in your life. We will discuss how we might work together and, if we decide we’d like to do so, we will agree a simple contract.
What does the contract cover?
The contract is on one page and covers when and how often we’ll meet, what fee will be paid and what happens if either of us needs to cancel a session.
How often will we meet?
Usually I see clients once a week at a regular time. I am able to see clients twice a week if necessary. I will be flexible about changing session times where I can.
How many sessions will I need?
How much time is appropriate depends upon what you want to explore and resolve. Often we’ll start with six sessions and review towards the end of that time to agree whether that’s been helpful. Some clients prefer to commit to long-term work from the outset, and that is possible too.
How can I be sure that you’re the right counsellor for me?
I am fully trained and experienced. I am registered with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) one of the main counselling accreditation bodies in the UK and I adhere to their code of ethics.
Whilst the above will hopefully provide reassurance, we’ll only really know whether we can work together successfully once we’ve met.
Where can I get information and advice about counselling in general?
The BACP is a good source of information. http://www.bacp.co.uk/
Where can I find out more about you?
Please feel free to read through the pages on this website or to contact me for more info. I am also on LinkedIn and I have an entry with the BACP Counselling Directory.
