Our Services and Fees.
Person-Centred Counselling/Psychotherapy for Individuals
People enter into counselling for many different reasons, each with their own individual history, experiences, personal pressures and ways of coping.
I provide a safe and confidential place for you to talk though your difficulties and to explore your thoughts and feelings. The work will be done at your pace and you will be supported and cared for as I endeavour to understand your experience whilst offering insights along the way as you change and grow.
Many people who enter into counselling find it to be a life changing experience. The process of counselling facilitates deep personal insight and increasingly meaningful self acceptance. These qualities are then usually taken into personal and work relationships and are a catalyst for wider change and fulfilment.
I would like to make our fees as affordable as possible and have a fee range of £30- £45 per session by negotiation for all our services. This reflects a more affordable rate as the current market price is generally in the region of £45 per session.
I provide a very limited number of pro bono and reduced rate sessions. These clients are usually drawn from voluntary and statutory sector service providers. However, please ask if you need to access this service. We will be happy to discuss availability and if your circumstances qualify you for this service.
N.B. These places are very limited and we may need to refer you to another service.
I offer a reduced rate of £30 per session for student counsellors who are taking a Certificate or the Diploma in Counselling.
I offer a student rate for clinical supervision at the rate of £45 for 1.5 hours. The rate will be higher if in private practice and will be agreed after our initial meeting. This includes administration and emergency out of hours telephone contact. It is important that we can establish and sustain a supervisory relationship, therefore an initial meeting (at no charge) to explore our compatability would be necessary.
