The normal means of paying for therapy sessions has traditionally been payment in cash at the end of each session. This is my standard payment method as it is straighforward and time-efficient. For this reason I don’t accept cheques or credit cards.
However, times are changing, and as more people recognise that the central banking system is fundamentally weighted against ordinary people, some are beginning to move away from Fiat currencies as part of a moral, ethical and lifestyle choice. In response to this cultural shift, I’m open to alternative means of payment such as Bitcoin and will consider time exchange and even bartering to cater for such people where we might have a mutual interest. I still have to pay my own bills in cash, so these alternative methods aren’t yet my main means of accepting payment.
I try to make my work as moral an endeavour as possible, putting people before profit whenever I can. A percentage of my fees go towards helping a variety of good causes that support people who are struggling in some way, some of which are listed in the relevant blog post.
I also have some sessions reserved for people in pressing need of therapeutic support but who don’t have the means to pay the full fee. If you find yourself with no income or very little income and need urgent help, please enquire and I’ll see if I have space available. I suggest a donation of £20 or more in such cases, and £30 or more for those on part-time minimum wage.
Sponsors and Donations
I also accept not-for-profit donations from anyone who wishes to help me to help others by providing them with low-cost therapy. If you wish to give in this way please contact me and I can send you payment details. I hope to add a Paypal donate button to the website at some point for this purpose. My longer-term aim would be to be in a position to provide free services to those in greatest need.
