Counselling Sessions & Fees
Free First Counselling Session
There will be no charge for this 30 minute session as I believe that it is the relationship that is significant in counselling. Unless you feel comfortable with me, that relationship cannot develop. There is no obligation to commit to further sessions following this introductory one.
Sessions are 50 minutes in duration. In the first, we will explore the difficulties you are facing and decide on an initial number of sessions, usually around six. The ultimate number of sessions will be determined by the pace at which you feel comfortable working. I believe that regular weekly sessions on the same day and at the same time are most beneficial, providing a structure that in itself can be therapeutic.
However, life is not always predictable and so we can talk about these arrangements and what to do if you need to miss an appointment when we meet.
I encourage you to call for more information or to make an appointment to meet me to see if you feel we could work together.
The initial consultation will take about 30 minutes and for this there will be no charge. Thereafter, each session will cost £45.00 payable at the start of each session or monthly by BACS.
My practice is near Pilton, Somerset. There is ample off road parking and a public bus stop nearby.
Cancellations & Missed Sessions
Therapy is best if the sessions are regular and weekly and so I will reserve your time and day of the week for you alone. If you cannot attend I will always try to find an alternative appointment time in the same week but if you miss a session I may ask you to pay as I will not have been able to see anyone else in your reserved time.
