Frequently Asked Questions
What is an initial session?
Making the decision to have counselling can feel daunting. How can you know whether the counsellor you choose is right for you? An initial, session gives us both a chance to get to know one another, to ask questions with no obligation to continue. This session is charged at my usual fee.
How long will I need to come to counselling?
The length of time you spend in counselling depends upon the issues you want to work on. This can be explored in the initial session.
How often will I need to come to counselling?
Sessions are 50 minutes in duration and take place once per week at an agreed appointment time.

What do you charge?
My fee is £60-£70 per session, depending on location. Some concessionary spaces may be available - please enquire. The session fee is payable on the day by cash or cheque. For online sessions, fees are payable by bank transfer 24 hours before a scheduled session.
What if I can't attend one of my booked sessions?
I operate a 7 day cancellation and re-schedule policy. So if you are unable to attend a session you will need to give me 7 days advance notice to avoid the full session charge. You will be given at least 4 weeks notice of my holidays and you will not be charged for the time I am away. I endeavour to give you as much notice as possible of other absences.
