Appointments & Venue
There is a green sign on the side fence on the drive, so you'll know you're at the right house. Please feel free to park on the drive and knock on the front door as you normally would at the time of your appointment. (Please don't knock earlier as I may not be listening out for the door).
The prices are listed below and I take card payments or cash at the time of your appointment please.
Standard Psychotherapy £40.00 /hour
Long Term Costs
4 Psychotherapy Sessions £140.00 (£35 per session-usually after 4-6 weeks)
12 Psychotherapy Sessions over 3 months £360.00 (£30 per session)
Sessions last for a good hour and are normally scheduled on a weekly basis, at the same time each week. I usually try to find you a regular slot each week and this slot is yours until you no longer need it. Ideally, it is recommended that when you are ready to stop therapy, one week to one months notice is given so that we can close effectively and this length of time depends on how long you have been doing therapy for.
Please read this contract before attending.
Terms of Agreement
As your therapist I am committed to you and
will give you the time and space to use my expertise, skills and
attention. If possible we will agree to a
regular weekly time to meet and any necessary changes will be agreed in advance, with
as much notice as reasonably possible.
My fee includes my supervision costs, insurance, training and membership of The Counselling Society. Payment can be made monthly or weekly at the session by cash or bank transfer. Any sessions cancelled without at least 24hrs notice are payable in full. Where notice is given I will make every endeavour to rearrange a session.
Within any session you may wish to disclose a particular issue, thought, feeling, situation, incident or dream or use the time to be quiet and reflect. Sessions are not structured in a particular way but are facilitated so that you are encouraged to use the time to bring forward for exploration whatever feels priority at any given time.
At the start we may agree a fixed number of sessions or, more usually the number of sessions will be open ended. When you feel ready to end our sessions, it is recommended this is mentioned 2-3 sessions beforehand so that we can use the opportunity to explore feelings around loss, separation and leaving, with the aim that you leave with full awareness of where you are at and with a positive feeling of closure.
I am a member of The Counselling Society and
subscribe to their code of ethics which can be read in full their website.
