My regular fee is £85 per session, but we can discuss this during our initial consultation. Your individual circumstances will be taken into consideration and a fee will be agreed on together before making any commitment to ongoing therapy.

As a guide, fees post-consultation tend to range between £65 and £85.

My fee for initial consultations is £70.

The first initial assessment is gives us both an opportunity to see if we both feel we can work together.

If we both mutually agree to work together we can move on to a formal assessment which lasts 55 minutes where the cost will be my standard fee as shown above. 

If we agree not to work together I would always be happy to recommend other therapists for you to contact who may be more suitable for your needs.

I am always happy to have a chat on the phone if you have any questions you need to ask. Just contact me by phone or email and I will ensure I will reply to you within 24 hours.

Further information

Your therapy sessions are always confidential. There are times when confidentiality may be need to be broken. For instance if you were at risk of harm either to yourself or from others and also if I feel someone around you may be at risk of harm. I would always try to discuss this with you first if possible.

This is a part of the codes of ethics which I abide by as an ethical practitioner. I am a member of the BACP who have codes of conduct and standards for professional Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

I provide a standard therapy business contract which states how we will work together stipulate regular reviews and also cancellation and holiday policy.
