Fees for the initial consultation

I believe that clarity about fees is important, and therefore will agree with you a fee for the initial 50 minute consultation when you make your appointment and advise you of the fees for subsequent sessions . You will receive an invoice at the end of the session which I ask you to settle before leaving. Cheques are acceptable but I regret that I am unable to accept credit or debit cards.

Fees for ongoing counselling, therapy and coaching

The fees for ongoing counselling/ therapy/ coaching will be discussed and agreed with you at the initial consultation. All fees are reviewed annually and three months notice given of any fee increase.

Where it would be helpful for your GP or other health professional directly involved in your care to know you are having counselling no charge is made for this. In such an event any contact is always discussed with you before hand and your permission sought. Where there has been contact with your GP or another health professional a discharge notification letter indicating the effects of therapy can be sent at the end of therapy. This service is free of charge.

Fees for ongoing trauma therapy

In line with best practice some trauma therapy sessions are longer than 50 minutes. The fee for such sessions is calculated as a multiple of your normal fee. Arrangements for longer sessions are always made in advance and the rationale for them discussed with you.

Counselling Supervision

Individual and group supervision fees agreed following discussion of your requirements.

Payment of fees for ongoing work

You will receive an invoice at the end of each calendar month which I ask you to settle within 14 days. You will receive an invoice for outstanding fees at the end of your final session and this should be settled before leaving. I accept payment by cheque or cash. I regret that I am unable to accept payment by debit or credit card.

Payment for missed or cancelled sessions

All missed or cancelled sessions are charged at the agreed session rate. This enables me to maintain your regular appointment time for the duration of therapy and keep costs down for everyone. I will however attempt to reschedule cancelled appointments where possible.
