Fees & FAQ

How much will it cost?

I charge £45 per individual session and £60 for a couples session

  • I also offer a limited number of counselling sessions at a concessionary rate – day time appointments
  • Student counsellors in training are also welcome 

How long is each session and how many will I need?

Each session lasts for 55 minutes for individuals and 75 minutes for couples.

The number of sessions needed varies. Some people are goal orientated about what they want from counselling and find 6 – 12 sessions is sufficient.  Some people find that an open ended arrangement works best for them.   This is something we can clarify together.

How often should I come for counselling?

Most people come for a weekly session and aim to come at the same time on the same day. There is a degree of flexibility on this  as I understand that may not always be possible, although I do stress that continuity and your commitment to counselling is important in order to get the greatest benefit from it.

What if I can’t come for a session?

If you need to cancel 48 hours notice is required or payment in full will be required.


Endings in counselling are an inevitable and crucial part of therapy.  As such, any decision to terminate counselling would ideally be discussed and explored together during the session.
