How much will it cost?

£50 per session – individual counselling (60 mins)

£65 per session – couples counselling (70 mins)

  • I also offer a limited amount of counselling sessions at a concessionary rate – day time only.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions needed varies according to your individual needs. Some people are goal orientated about what they want from counselling and find 6 – 12 sessions is sufficient.  You may require a more open-ended arrangement, depending on your situation. This is something we can clarify and discuss together when we meet.

How often should I come for counselling?

I offer weekly sessions.  Most people accept a day and time slot  which is attainable for both of us. This is not “set in stone” as I understand that may not always be possible when, for example, someone does shift work.  However, please note that I cannot hold your space and time if you are unable to attend regularly, especially as this can prevent other people who may be waiting for a regular weekly space from attending.  In order for you to get the full therapeutic benefit from counselling, your continuity and consistency is vital.

What if I can’t come for a session?

If you need to cancel 48 hours notice is required or you will be expected to pay for your missed session in full. Full details of my cancellation policy is set out in my Terms and Conditions, a copy of which you will be given to read and sign at the initial session, by way of agreement.


Endings in counselling are an inevitable part of therapy.  Your decision to terminate counselling would ideally be discussed during your session.  I also have the right to terminate the therapy, if necessary, but not without discussing this with you fully first.
