I have recently expanded my working week and I am now able to offer the following timeslots:
Monday : 10:00-14:00 & 18:00-21:00
Tuesday : 10:00-14:00 & 18:00-21:00
Wednesday : 10:00-14:00 & 18:00-21:00
Thursday : 10:00-14:00 & 18:00-21:00
Friday : 10:00-14:00
Saturday : 8:30-12:30
I do not usually offer Sunday sessions, however when no other suitable timeslots are available I can offer a Sunday morning session.
Sessions typically last for 50 minutes, (55 minutes for couples).
Appointments can be made by using the contact tab on this website (anytime) or on my mobile 07531 947351 (Daily 8:30am - 8:30pm)
From 1 February 2017 - I am increasing my session charges from £38 individual / £48 couples to £40 individual / £50 couples (see detail below).
The reason for this increase is to bring my charges in line with many other local counsellors who charge £40 for an individual session, it also takes into account some of the additional personal costs that I incur.
Please note, existing clients fees remain at the lower price when any price increase occurs.
Individuals - I charge £38 per session - 50 minutes - payable by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
I am happy to offer a 30 minute trial for £25 if you would prefer.
Couples / Relationships - I charge £48 per session - 55 minutes - payable by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
Please note, I typically recommend that the second session is 1 hour and 20 minutes in length (£60 charge) with the third session returning to the normal 55 minutes in length, this is due to the structure created in the second session in order to make the third and any subsequent sessions more productive, however, if you insist we can stick with the standard length.
If paying by cash I have a steady supply of £2 coins so don't worry!
Counselling Students - I charge £30 per session - payable by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
Please note, this rate is applicable for those clients who are working towards their counselling diploma or counselling courses whereby there is a requirement to complete a set number of sessions. You do not need to complete all sessions with me to achieve this rate but do need proof of course.
Concessional Rates - The initial session is charged at my standard rate (two sessions if you have contacted me via certain websites as I have agreed a fixed rate with them that I pay to them). I am able to offer a number of concessional sessions. These sessions are at a reduced rate that we can discuss and agree. Depending on my workload, it might be that the rates are only offered at times where I incur less charges or are my less popular timeslots. These rates are normally based upon affordability, after the initial session. Please don't be embarrassed to ask.
I work alongside a number of local GP surgeries and childrens centres and I am able to offer a number of concessional sessions.
Cancellations - Unfortunately I do charge a cancellation fee if a session is cancelled at short notice as I incur my own costs and often have a waiting list for certain timeslots; we would talk about the suitability of this depending on the circumstances as I appreciate that sometimes things happen which are out of our control.
Individuals - I charge £40 per session - payable by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
