I offer an initial 30 mins consultation to explore the circumstances that are relevant to you seeking therapy, and we can establish if we feel comfortable working together. This session will also give us a chance to discuss our respective availability and the 'terms and conditions' of my practice.
If we are both happy to proceed, each session will last 50 minutes and we will hold them weekly at a regular time. The fee per session is £45. My fee takes into account my level of professional experience and training; administrative/room hire costs plus the insurance, supervision and professional organisational memberships I undertake to ensure clients receive the best possible trusted ethical service. I do recommend a commitment to a minimum of six sessions to build trust and a therapeutic relationship. Payment will be by BACS at least 48 hours in advance.
Holidays and cancellations will need to be notified at least 48 hours in advance whenever possible.
Because of the Covid-19 restrictions, I'm now offering the counselling sessions via telephone, FaceTime and WhatsApp video calling. The clinical results of remote therapy are the same as face to face. As soon as it is safe to do so, I will reopen my practice in Leeds on Tuesdays for face to face counselling.
