My standard fee for individual sessions of 50 minutes is £75. My fee for couples’ sessions is £110.
I also offer a limited number of concessionary sessions for students or the low-waged who are happy to come during the day.
I’m also able to accept payments via certain insurance companies – including AXA, Aviva and Vitality.
I normally see clients at my home on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. I also provide sessions online and over the phone where that is more suitable.
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 and accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). They are 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?
