Sessions & Fees
However professional or glossy a website may seem, there is no substitute for meeting face to face and I offer an initial consultation for this purpose. This is not a commitment to start therapy. Rather it is an opportunity for us to meet, for you to talk about your concerns and to see if you think I might be someone you could work with and for me to assess if I could help. If we decide to continue, we will then agree a regular time to meet each week.
I see people for short- term focused work or for longer – term work with no decided end date, depending on your needs. This would be discussed at our initial meeting.
At our inital meeting, we will have arranged to meet regularly (for 50 minutes) at the same time and on the same day each week. At these meetings, we will be able to establish a trusting and honest relationship, enabling you to speak of and focus on whatever is troubling you in a safe environment. My role will not be to advise you or tell you what to do, but to listen to you and with you, think about your concerns and using my experience and training, encourage you to find lasting answers that are meaningful to you.
An initial consultation costs between £65 and £75. This usually takes place over one session or, if needed, can be extended to two sessions, in which case a reduced fee of £125 would be charged.
My fees for a regular 50 minute weekly session vary between £65 to £90 depending on the location of the sessions and the time of day.
My fees are reviewed annually.
