Susan Brill, MBACP (£20-£25, Couples £30, Home Visits)
41 North Street
BACP Registered Counsellor ~ I offer a professional, confidential counselling service at exceptionally low rates to make private therapy affordable to everyone (£20 Individuals, £25 after 5pm, £30 couples), for a 60 minute session. I do not ask for proof of income, that can feel humiliating; my rates are the same for everyone, and unlike many charities l do not limit the amount of sessions you may have. I also offer home visits for those unable to travel to Wake House due to disability (an additional supplement will be added to cover travel, to be agreed between us prior to sessions commencing). I am a Registered Member of The British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists, and hold full Indemnity Insurance. I work from a private room in Wake House, Bourne, Lincs, offering a safe, comfortable and quiet space for you to work through your concerns.
The primary goal of any form of counselling therapy is to release the client from any emotional distress, mental confusion and/or limiting beliefs. Counselling arms the client with the opportunity to become more self-aware, and more in control of creating the sort of positive changes they want to see in their life.
Fees: £20 Individuals (£25 after 5pm), £30 Couples (Saturday mornings £30 all sessions).
Sessions: 60 minutes
Home visits are an option should mobility be an issue. Travelling costs will be added to session fee - (advised and agreed prior to the first session).
~ Student Counsellors welcome.
Payment: Cash at the appointment or BACs prior to appointment.
Wake House has its own free car park at the rear of the premises for clients to use.
