The cost for each adult individual private counselling session is £40, but these costs can be negotiated when there are financial difficulties. Evening appointments cost a little more. The cost for referrals via BUPA or EAPs are agreed at individual rates. During the first session you can explore whether counselling feels right for you and get a feeling for whether you believe that I am the right counsellor for you. The number of sessions required varies from individual to individual; some people may find one or two sessions is sufficient, others may require counselling over a longer period of time. The final choice is entirely up to you.
My private work with children and young people is £15 but referrals via BUPA or EAPs are agreed at individual rates. When working with children and young people I try to make the sessions as informal as I can in order to minimise any adult/young person power imbalance. These individual sessions are usually for up to an hour, but some younger people may find that 45 minutes is sufficient.
Regrettably, I am now unable to work with young children as I usually use Play Therapy, Art, Sand Tray, Puppets, and a variety of creative interactions. These ways of working make it difficult for me to ensure the level of protection required against COVID-19.
