Fees

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

[Page last updated November 5, 2019]

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 and Home Visits [Cash, Bank Transfer, or Paypal if you live outside of the UK]

Supplementary Support

Supplementary support is the provision of extra input at a discounted fee rate that you can use flexibly according to need in between regular weekly face-to-face or online sessions.  It is time that is on standby ‘just in case’ you need it and is available to individuals, couples, and groups and delivered online by Skype, email, telephone or online chat.  Supplementary Support minutes are purchased in cash in advance at your next session and used as little or as often as you need, with any unused credit (as money) being put towards one of your sessions if you prefer.
