Counselling requires a commitment between the Client and Counsellor to meet weekly at an agreed time and date. A counselling session lasts 50 minutes. For your counselling to be effective, it is important to attend regularly. If you are late for your session, there will be less time available for you.
Charges for each Counselling session will be at the following, Children £55.00, Individuals £65.00, Relationship £95.00, Family’s from £150.00. Payment ensures your space is kept for you and is payable for any sessions that are missed. In the event of cancellation 24hrs must be given either by phone, text, or email.
Counsellors are required to abide by the ethical guidelines laid down by BACP and/or UKCP, which are the governing bodies regulating counsellors and therapists. I am a member of the BACP and UKCP. There are strict rules around confidentiality to be respected but, as a counsellor, I have a duty of care to my clients and the community. I would only break confidentiality if a client or others in the community were seriously at risk of harm and I would always aim to discuss this with my client first. Also, with an emphasis on safe practice, I attend monthly supervision where your case would be presented in an unidentifiable context.
Holidays + Continued Professional Development Courses
There will be a break in therapy when I am on holiday or on a professional development course and you will be given advance notice of these breaks.
- Young people - £55.00

When the time comes, it is important to allow time for ending our sessions effectively. You can give notice to me in session, and we can then organise at least one further ending session for reviewing your therapy and saying goodbye. For long term work, a longer ending period of 4-8 weeks is recommended.
