Supervision sessions are charged at £45 for 50 minute with 1.5 hour sessions available on request, Skype & FaceTime sessions are also available. Sessions are available during the daytime, evenings and weekends.
Sometimes a 50 minute face-to-face Counselling session may not be what you need and Trudy will discuss other contact options i.e. telephone/email/online counselling where appropriate.
I offer a very limited number of reduced fee sessions for counselling students and those who are unable to pay at the full rate. Please contact Trudy to discuss this and do not let finances get in the way of you getting the help you need. If Trudy is unable to offer you her services at this time she will do all she can to refer you to an appropriate colleague/service locally.
