Counselling & Coaching - Initial Assessment & Consultation
I offer a reduced fee for the initial session as this is an informal appointment, giving us the opportunity to 'meet', discuss the process and gain some knowledge and information about you and your reason behind seeking counselling. I will explain the client contract and other relevant paperwork with you and make sure that you understand and are happy with the content.
This time also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions regarding the counselling process. Most importantly we will find out if we feel comfortable working together. I can offer short or long term work, depending on what is appropriate for you.
If for whatever reason I feel that my clinical skills or experience do not match your needs, I will endeavour to 'signpost' you towards useful contacts, a professional colleague or appropriate agency.
Initial Assessment & Consultation Fee - £25 for 30 minutes
Further Individual Session Fee (Face to face) - £45 for 50 minutes
Individual Zoom/Microsoft Teams/Telephone Session - £45 for 50 minutes
It is important that when you enter into a Virtual/Telephone session you consider privacy, confidentiality and your environment.
I work Monday and Tuesday between 09:30 and 16:00 and am also able to offer some evening or Saturday morning appointments upon request.
It is important to begin our sessions at the agreed time. If you are going to be late then it may not be possible to have the full session. The agreed fee is still payable.
If you are unable to attend a session please provide a minimum of 24 hours cancellation notice by text, email or phone call. Any notice less than this will result in the full fee being charged. In the event that I am unable to attend, I will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible.
