I offer a free 30 minute introductory counselling session so that we can meet each other and you can decide if I am the right therapist for you. Occasionally I may offer to refer you to someone else if I feel that they would be better qualified to work with you.
My aim is to make counselling affordable and so my normal fee is £45, but I do offer concessionary rates. In our first meeting we will have an opportunity to talk about this.
I can offer student discounts.
If you are unable to attend your normal counselling session then I ask for some advance notice. We can then try and re-arrange the session within a week of the cancelled session. If this is not possible then I charge for the missed session.
I try to be as flexible as possible about session times, including offering some evening counselling sessions.
For people contacting me because of a traumatic experience, I recommend a one-hour first appointment which I offer at a reduced rate.
