An initial consultation session will help us to explore your needs and expectations and help us decide whether we would like to work together. A good relationship between client and therapist is essential for therapy to be effective, and this is your opportunity to see if the 'fit' between us feels right.
Therapy sessions takes place at a regular time each week for 50 minutes. Initially, I usually arrange to see you for six sessions. During this time, we will have a review session, where we can agree to re-contract for a number of further sessions, to work open ended for the longer term, or to end therapy.
My current fees for ongoing therapy are usually is £60 a session. I do have a number of low fee spaces which are available on discussion. I also offer discounts for those employed in the armed forces, fire, police, ambulance and other trauma related fields, and for students.
I am an approved provider of psychotherapy /counselling therapy for Aviva, PruHealth, WPA and WPA Protocol. I can invoice them directly for payment of your fees. Please check the details of your individual policy and discuss this with your healthcare insurer who will confirm the level of your cover and any referral requirements.
Please provide a minimum of 48 hours’ notice if you wish to cancel a session. If possible, I will try to reschedule our appointment or arrange a skype session. If you are unable to provide 48 hours’ notice you will be requested to pay for any sessions that you cancel or miss. You will not be expected to pay for any sessions cancelled by me. In order to keep your regular appointment time open for the duration of our work together, if you are going to be away for more than 2 consecutive weeks, I may request a holding fee of half your normal fee, payable from the third week of absence.
You can either pay for each session individually, or pay monthly in arrears for sessions received each month. I accept payment by bank transfer, cash or cheque.
