Sessions & Fees

Counselling sessions

Sessions usually take place weekly or twice weekly and lasts for 50 minutes. These sessions cost £70. Monthly extended appointments of 75 minutes are also available. These are charged at £90. Student counsellors may be offered concessions.

Life Coaching Sessions

An initial two and a half hour appointment is followed by six hour long appointments, usually one hour in length. The purpose of initial session is to fully understand what the issues are and what the goals are. The follow-up sessions are to review progress and see what needs to change to increase progress and resilience. The first session is £200 and the following sessions are £90 each.

MSupervision Sessions

Sessions can be an hour or an hour and half depending on your clinical hours. Hour and a half sessions are £75 and hour long sessions are £60.

Lateness and cancellation

If I am late for a session, I will make up the time so long as this is possible, or reimburse you accordingly. If you are late, please expect the session to finish at the appointed time.  If I cancel a session, you will not be expected to pay for it and, if possible, I will offer you another. Sessions which you cancel with less than one week’s notice carry the full fee, although whenever possible I will try to offer an alternative time that suits us both, (please note that this is often not possible).

Term time

My practice is term time only although this is negotiable. I will try to give good notice of forthcoming holidays and breaks and I hope you will give me as much notice as you can.

Confidentiality

What is shared in the session will be treated as confidential. It will not be discussed outside the sessions except in the context of professional supervision. Any such references will always be anonymous and you could not be identified through them. In very few extreme circumstances, it might be necessary for me to pass on information. This would only be if there were a substantial possibility of serious harm to yourself or others or if I were legally impelled to impart information. If I had concerns in this area, I would talk to you as fully as possible before deciding to take any action. I aim to maintain the highest standards of good practice and safety. If you do have any concerns whatsoever in this regard, please do raise them with me. I am fully insured. Please see the UKCP website (www.ukcp.co.uk) as it contains the ethical code I am compelled to work to.
