FAQ AND FEES

What can I expect when coming to counselling?

After getting in contact with myself you will be offered an initial assessment which will be for 30 minutes. During the initial we will discuss your presenting issues and what you want from counselling. My role during the initial is to gather information that would help me to decide which would be the best way to work with you. From this a plan would be created by myself that is tailored to your needs. During the initial we will also discuss contracting and if your happy to proceed, we will sign contracts and arrange our first session. 


Sessions will then run weekly and within the sessions we will explore the areas covered on the plan. During the sessions I will offer you tools, techniques and coping strategies to manage your mental health, worries and presenting issues more effectively. Together we work towards a healthier mindset and a better relationship with yourself. Sessions will continue to you feel ready to end, we will review regularly during the counselling process.

What can I expect when bringing my child to counselling?

After getting in contact you will be invited with your child to see me for a 30 minute initial assessment. During this time your child will get to meet me and you will be able to ask any questions. If your both happy to proceed with counselling sessions we will book in our first session. I will regular review with yourself where I will invite you in to discuss your child's process. Please see how I work with your child during counselling sessions on the separate page on this website titled young people.

Student counselling fees

I offer two spaces for counselling students at a reduced rate of £35 a session. 

Online counselling fees

Online counselling sessions are through Zoom and are priced at £40-£45 per session depending on the time of session.

Concessions

I do try to make counselling affordable for all, as I understand how important mental health is and some find it difficult to access the right support due to financial circumstance's. So, I offer concessions for those on lower incomes at a reduced rate of £30 (£35 for an evening session) a session unless a verbal agreement has been made for a lower concession.

Block fees

I offer block payments at a reduced rate if payed upfront and in full. Sessions also need to be taken consecutively. A block of 6 sessions would be £200 (£230 if sessions are after 6pm).


How do I pay?

Payments need to be made prior the sessions and can be made by bank transfer or cash.
