Sessions and Fees
I am committed to maintaining and respecting your confidentiality. I will not disclose anything you share with me unless I have serious concerns about your safety or that of others. Should such an issue arise, I will explore it further with you and if there is a need to seek further help for you, I would aim to do this collaboratively with you.
All therapists are required to have clinical supervision which is a formal working relationship with a more experienced therapist and trained supervisor, to discuss case work. As and when I discuss our work in my supervision, I will respect your anonymity and my supervisor is equally committed to respecting your confidentiality and protecting your identity.
Individual therapy sessions with me are 50 minute appointments at an agreed weekly day and time. I am able to offer these sessions in person in one of my therapy rooms, or remotely, either by telephone or video calls. My fee for individual therapy is £120 per session.
I can work either short term or long term, it really depends on the presenting issues, how you feel and what you want. We can discuss this further at our first session and decide but you’re not obliged to commit to more than each session that you book in.
I believe only you will know if the sessions are useful once you start and I will trust your judgement about how many sessions you need.
Couples therapy sessions are 50 minutes each week and the fee is £160 per session. These can be attended either in person or remotely but it is my preference that they are in person at least initially.
The first session would be with the two of you together, then the following two sessions, I would see you individually then the 4th session would be together again where I would offer some feedback, establish some shared goals and make a plan of how we can work together. If at this point you both agree to continue, all further sessions would be together and the work will sometimes involve tasks to carry out at home between sessions.
The number of sessions required can vary depending on your unique circumstances and presenting issues but generally range from 12-16 sessions.
Clinical supervision sessions are arranged according to individual requests for which I charge £80 per hour and can be either in person or remotely.
In the event that I need to cancel or rearrange an appointment, I will try to give you as much notice as possible and ask that you do the same. Sessions that are cancelled giving less than 48 hours of notice will be charged at 50% of the session fee and sessions missed without notice will be payable in full.
