My initial consultation fee for a fifty minute face to face meeting is £35.
I set this initial appointment fee lower as I think it is important that we have the chance to meet and get a feel for each other and think about if we could work together, before you decide.
We may decide after meeting that we would like a further initial consultation, again charged at £35.
Following on from this initial consultation, if you feel you would like to work with me, I charge £55 per 50 minute session.
We can agree the regularity and length of treatment at the outset, although for therapy to be effective, I am of the opinion that a commitment of at least weekly sessions for a good length of time is optimal. I myself have seen various therapists for time periods ranging from a year to five years. Of course, everyone is different, and circumstances change over time. We can discuss this on an on-going basis. I do feel that therapy is most effective when a relationship of trust is allowed to build between the two people involved in the therapy relationship.
I am able to offer a number of reduced rate places for those on a low income. I would not want to exclude people on the basis of affordability. Please contact me to discuss further.
Please contact me if you would like to arrange an initial telephone or face to face consultation.
