Appointments and Cost
I can offer you a free initial consultation by telephone for up to 20 minutes and without any further obligation.
This session gives you an opportunity to find out more about me and the way I work and for me to assess your needs and discuss any hopes and expectations you may have for therapy.
We can then decide if we feel we can work together before you make an appointment and commit to on-going counselling sessions, either face-to-face or by telephone.
Regular sessions are usually weekly on the same day, at the same time and in the same place.
My charge for a 50 minute counselling session is £40, payable in advance by bank transfer or, in cash at the beginning of each meeting for face-to-face appointments.
Some clients have expressed a need for longer sessions and a 75 minute appointment can be booked at a charge of £55, payable in cash at the beginning of each meeting for face-to-face appointments, or in advance by bank transfer.
Telephone counselling must be paid for in advance by bank transfer.
All fees are reviewed annually on the 1st January.
Through my recent work with the NHS, I know just how long the waiting lists for counselling can be and how urgently some of you need therapy but cannot always afford to pay for private consultation.
I do have a limited number of sessions available at concessionary rates for counsellors in training, students and those of you on benefits or low incomes. Please discuss this at our initial telephone consultation.
In the event of missing an appointment the full fee is payable, unless 48 hours cancellation notice is given.
Telephone counselling is only available for anyone over the age of 18 and by special arrangement. Further details are available by request.
If you would like to make contact with me then I would be pleased to hear from you.
You can ring my mobile number on 07812 721107 for a free, confidential, 20 minute telephone chat to discuss your counselling needs.
I am not always available to take your call immediately but I will get back to you as soon as possible if you leave me a brief voice message, including your name and telephone number.
I aim to return all calls within 24 hours on weekdays and the next working day if you ring me at the weekend.
