FAQS & Fees

Will I need to attend psychotherapy sessions for a long time?

This is very difficult to predict as sometimes life is ever evolving and may require different amounts of support. How long clients stay in psychotherapy or counselling is generally up to them. However, I would invite clients to discuss this within sessions. This way we are on the same page as far as length of time someone intends to remain in sessions.

What are the fees for session

Individual psychotherapy and eco therapy sessions are generally a set rate of £50. I do offer concessionary slots, so please ask.

I offer a discounted rate for the initial assessment session. 

Workshop sessions depend on group size but are between £60- £70 per hour plus travel costs to the location. However, I do offer concession rates for charities, so please get in touch.

What is the length of a session?

Sessions last 50 minutes but I allow for additional time at the end of sessions to  address practicalities such as scheduling.

How frequent are sessions?

 This varies for each client, but in order to benefit from continuity and depth of therapy, I recommend weekly appointments.

How do I get started?

Please contact me initially by phone or email. We will find a time to speak over the phone briefly about what you want from psychotherapy and agree to meet for an initial assessment session.

What happens if I have to cancel a session?

I offer clients to cancel up to 24 hours in advance of the start time of the session. If you cancel after this time, then the full session fee will be incurred. 

What to expect from an initial assessment?

This initial session is an opportunity for you to tell me more about yourself and why you want to attend psychotherapy. It is also a chance for you to gauge whether you feel comfortable with me and for me to check that I am able to offer you the help that you need.

During this session, I briefly explain my psychotherapy agreement and privacy policy (GDPR) which describes the practicalities of our work together. You are under no obligation to continue and can take this agreement with you to decide at a later point.
