I offer a £20 reduction in price for the first session if taken in off-peak hours (Mon - Fri: 10:30 - 15.30). This allows you to test the water - perhaps you would like to know more about counselling or perhaps you want to be sure that I am someone you are able talk to. There is no obligation to continue.
Price for counselling sessions (Mon-Fri) is £50 for individuals and £65 for couples and I offer a full hour. This compares to a typical counselling session of 50 minutes.
Weekend sessions cost £55 for individuals and £70 for couples.
Price for Supervision is £50 for 60 minutes and £70 for 90 minutes.
