"When someone really hears you without passing judgement on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mold you, it feels damn good". - Carl Rogers
I offer sessions online or by phone.

Individual sessions cost £45 for 60 minutes.
Couples sessions cost £60 for 75 minutes.
I take payment in full on the day of your session via bank transfer.
In some circumstances, I can offer sessions at a reduced fee. You can contact me about this.
Frequently asked questions
Listed below are the answers to common questions around fees. I hope this is useful.
Do I have to pay for the introductory session?
Yes, I do charge for this session, and it costs the same as any subsequent sessions.
The introductory (or consultation) session is all-important because it offers an opportunity for us to establish if we could work well together, including over the internet or by phone.
How often would the sessions be?
Sessions would be weekly or fortnightly to start with, so we can build our relationship.
In the event of a crisis, it may be appropriate to increase the frequency of our sessions, yet this is something we would discuss together.
Can you offer a reduced fee for sessions?
I can offer a reduced fee if you're living on a low income, training to become a counsellor (Diploma level or above) or classed as a key worker. You can contact me for further information.
Can I pay by debit or credit card?
No, I do not have the facility for this at the moment. My current payment method is bank transfer, and I will provide the details you need at the point of booking an introductory session.
Would I be charged for cancelling a session?
I ask for a minimum of 24 hours notice for cancelling a session - either by phone, email or text. If you couldn't provide this, you would incur a charge of £20.
How many sessions would I need?
Everyone is different, so it's hard to say. It may depend on your circumstances and what you hope to achieve through counselling.
I can work with you on a long or short-term basis. I suggest an initial commitment of 6 sessions, after which we can review our work and negotiate further sessions if needed.
If you have any other questions relating to fees, please do get in touch.
