WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
My standard fees for a 50 minute session are £35 .
I am able to offer some fee reductions for people on a reduced income - please ask about this.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE COUNSELLING AND SKILL SESSIONS?
The 1-2-1 counselling sessions offer us a chance to talk through with support whatever you need to talk through. The reflective skill sessions are a bit more practical and help you to experiement with different tools to help you on your wellbeing journey.
CAN I BOOK AN INITIAL ASSESSMENT?
It can be hard to decide who you want to work with, so in the first instance, for £20, I offer an assessment session which gives you the chance to see how it might feel for us to work together.
