Our first session together will last a little over an hour. I need to learn what brings you to counselling, we will decide on what we hope to achieve and there are also a few forms to complete.
Thereafter sessions last for 50 minutes. I ask that you be prompt to the session, arriving just a minute or two before we are due to begin. I do not have a waiting area, so please try not to arrive on foot in poor weather with too much time to spare!
Our work together can be either open-ended or we will contract around the number of sessions we book in.
It is preferable that we agree on a particular day and time to meet each week. I’m aware with changing work and personal commitments this isn’t always possible and I do try to be flexible when possible and if appropriate. Making a commitment to invest in yourself is really important – both timewise and financially – because you have a value.
Payment can be made by bank transfer or in cash.
Missed sessions will be charged for.
By prior arrangement and notice, holidays and cancellations will not be charged (details will be contracted at our first meeting).
… always worth talking about!
My fee scale is £40 - £60 per session: depending upon day/evening or weekend sessions.
I don’t want cost to deter people from getting the support they need – so let’s talk and decide what might work for you.
