Session practicalities

Session timing and frequency

Psychotherapy or Couples Counselling usually takes place weekly in a session lasting 55 minutes.  Occasionally sessions can take place more or less frequently and/or longer sessions can be negotiated in advance. 

The initial session

In the initial session I can tell you more about the way I work and you can say what leads you to consider Counselling & Psychotherapy.   From this we can decide whether we will work with one another. 

Fees

My full fee per session is £60 but reductions can be offered, with clients paying between £60-£20.  Clients should pay as much as they can afford on the £60-20 scale, dependent on their own assessment of their disposable income/savings and their essential outgoings/dependents.   

Corporate-paid clients will be charged at a higher rate. 555556£7070

Professional and Ethical Standards

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the United Kingdom Association for Humanistic Psychology Practitioners (UKAHPP) which is an independent member organisation of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).  I also belong to various other groups providing professional support and networking opportunities.

I work to both the BACP and UKAHPP codes of practice and ethics assuring you of the highest standards of integrity, impartiality and respect (see links below).  Our work is confidential (unless life is endangered when I would attempt to discuss any decision to break confidentiality with you beforehand).
