Fees and Terms

I usually suggest we arrange an initial 1 hour appointment where you can discuss your situation and consider whether counselling is right for you and, indeed, whether I am the right counsellor for you.  If you decide to go ahead we can then arrange regular weekly sessions on a day and time to suit you.  This will be your appointment time for as long as you need it.  I aim to be as flexible as possible for those with shift work patterns.

The weekly sessions are 50 minutes in duration for both individuals and couples.

My working hours are Monday to Friday 8.30 am - 8.30 pm.

Confidentiality will be maintained strictly in accordance with the BACP ethical framework with the only exceptions being circumstances where I feel you might be in danger of harming yourself or others.  In these instances I would consult you wherever possible before contacting others.

  1. £50 per 50 minute session for both individuals and couples / £45 for student counsellors.
  2. Fees are payable at the end of each session (cash or cheque).
