How much will it cost?
£50 per session (50 mins) – individual counselling

N.B. I also offer a limited amount of counselling sessions at a concessionary rate – please enquire to see if you qualify.
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?
Initially, I offer weekly sessions. Most people accept a day and time slot which is attainable for both of us. I am committed to showing up consistently, being fully present with you and supporting you through the counselling process to the best of my ability. In order for you to reap the benefit of counselling, I do require the same commitment from you.
What if I can’t come for a session?
If you need to cancel, I will require at least 48 hours notice or you will be charged in full for the missed session. Full details of my cancellation policy is set out in my Terms and Conditions, a copy of which I will send you by email prior to your first session
Counselling involves the discussion of sensitive, personal information. This information, in conjunction with the identity of a client, will not be disclosed by me Maria Mead to external parties, other than in the following exceptional circumstances, under which I reserve the right (or may be bound by law) to break confidentiality:-
Where I have reason to believe that there is a serious risk of harm to a client or others with whom a client may come into contact. Under these circumstances, I may need to consult a supervisor or other health professional. I will always attempt to discuss this with the client beforehand, but under certain circumstances (e.g. where life is at risk) this may not be possible.
