Fees for Individuals, Couples, Groups, Families, Online and Supplementary Support

[Page last updated January 23, 2020]

Session Length

My sessions are 60 minutes long (with a 90 minute option), giving you about 17% more time and better value than the industry standard ‘therapeutic hour’ (which is actually 50 minutes).  60 minute sessions work out at the equivalent of one session free in every 5 by comparison.  Fees include supportive materials sent between sessions by email.

  • Payment methods:
    • cash at the beginning or end of each session. 
    • prepayment for Online Support, Skype-icon.png Skype and Home Visits [Cash, Bank Transfer, or Paypal if you live outside of the UK]
  • Fees may be adjusted throughout the year.
