The essence of therapy is in the relationship between the therapist and the client. As such, it is important that you find a therapist who you feel you can really work with. With this in mind, I offer initial sessions at a discounted rate of £25.
After this, my fees range between £40 and £60 depending on what you can afford. The cheaper end of the scale being for students and those with financial hardship.
If you are interested in working with me, feel free to call or email me so we can have a short chat first. I recognise that you may feel nervous or unsure about what to expect so I am happy to answer questions and offer any clarification before meeting for a first session.
In your first session, you will be able to explore your concerns with me and establish what you hope to get out of counselling. I may enquire about some background information relevant to the therapy and you will be able to ask questions to get any clarification you need. If you feel my service is not suitable for you at this stage, I can help you explore your options and will endeavour to offer you a referral more appropriate to your needs.
Sessions last for 50 minutes at a regular time slot each week. It is important to attend weekly so as to get the most out of therapy. If you would like to make an alternative arrangement, then I may be able to accommodate this if it is appropriate and practical.
If you should need to cancel a session, please make sure you do so at least 24 hours beforehand to avoid being charged. If you are in an emergency situation and cannot give me that much warning, then I will only charge the room hire fee and other unavoidable costs.
