Fees & Terms
Initially we would meet for an assessment session; this gives us an opportunity to discuss your needs, establish if we would like to work together and what kind of counselling or psychotherapy is most suitable for you. Referrals can also be made to other specialists if that seems most appropriate.
Psychotherapy sessions last 50 minutes, however, if appropriate I can arrange longer sessions of 90 minutes commensurate with the standard hourly fee.
Generally I would see clients on a weekly basis, however more frequent or fortnightly/monthly appointments can also be negotiated.
Fees for the assessment and psychotherapy sessions are £55.00
Terms of contract
If we decide to work together then we will discuss the contract that we put together, this would usually be for an initial set amount of time from 4 to 12 sessions, and then we can discuss longer more open-ended work if that is what is wanted.
I require a minimum 1 sessions notice in advance to end the therapy to give us space to discuss a therapeutic ending.
Cancellation Policy: I try to have reasonably flexible approach to sessions; if you let me know a week or more in advance I will try to change an arranged appointment to a different time within the week for you. However, if sessions are cancelled with less than 48 hours notice and a replacement session cannot be booked within the week, I do charge the full fee of the cancelled session.
