MY SERVICES AND CHARGES
I offer an initial, free 20-minute phone consultation, where I explain more about my service and how I can help you and you can check that I am the right therapist for you.
Subsequent paid counselling sessions can either be held in person, face-to-face, at my home or in nearby offices. Alternatively, if you live outside commutable distance or online therapy suits your personal circumstances better, I am able to offer (remote) on-line therapy by Zoom or other secure online therapy-specific platforms. If you choose the latter method you will need to use a confidential, private space where you will be undisturbed for the 50-minutes of therapy and you will need a stable internet service and suitable equipment (generally laptop, ipad or tablet rather than phone). You may also want to use earphones.
As development of the therapeutic relationship is very important to the outcome, I offer reduced cost initial sessions until you are comfortable with how I work and settled into the process :
1st Session £35
2nd Session £40
£50 per face-to-face or online session
Payment should be made by bank transfer, 24-hours in advance of the session. With prior agreement, cash payment on the day may be made for face-to-face sessions.
Full-time students, counselling trainees and low-income clients may be offered a discounted rate of £40 per session.
Having trained with a children's charity I am able to provide counselling services to young people aged 13+ as well as adults.
I am also an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist providing therapeutic support to the charity's members and partner beneficiaries. I am subject to Anxiety UK's regular monitoring of my professional qualifications, supervision, continual professional development, insurance and professional body membership in addition to complying with the ethical framework and professional standards set down by my registered governing body, the National Counselling Society (NCS).
