For child counselling/psychotherapy my fee is £60 per session. A session lasts approximately 50 minutes. The initial meeting with parents or carers is normally for an hour and a half and my fee for this is £90. A reduced fee may be available for parents or carers in receipt of benefits or otherwise on a low income.
For parent/carer consultation, my fee is £120. This includes a 90 minute consultation session and a written report detailing what we have discussed and the next steps/recommendations. If we decide a follow up session is needed we can arrange this at the end of the consultation or afterwards. My fee for follow up sessions is £60 for approximately 50 minutes.
