SESSIONS AND FEES

SESSIONS AND FEES FOR COUNSELLING YOUNG PEOPLE 12+ AND ADULTS:

If you are interested in working together please make contact with me where we can arrange a brief introductory conversation, up to 15 minutes, giving us the opportunity to meet and for you to ask any questions you may have.

Following this introduction, and if you decide to continue, we will arrange a full 50-minute initial consultation session, which will allow us to explore what has brought you to counselling in more detail, what you would like to gain from sessions together, and your background and history. There is no obligation to agree to sessions following this consultation.

If you would like to move forward in sessions together, we will then agree on a day and time that suits us both and discuss whether you would like talking therapy, walk and talk therapy or a mixture of both.

OPTIONAL REPORT FOLLOWING THERAPY: £50

Initial Consultation session: This is where you share with me, in more depth, what has brought you to seek therapy for your child and what your hopes and expectations of therapy are. We will also discuss confidentiality and I will share how I work. If you would like to go ahead after this session, we will agree a regular, weekly slot.

2 x parental psychoeducational sessions: These sessions support parents in understanding and applying techniques and skills we use in the therapy room, at home, and how to model these new life skills. We will look at the relationships between emotion and behaviour as well as boundaries and developing healthy parent/child relationships.

Review: This is where parents and I meet after around 8 sessions to discuss any changes that have been noticed and general feedback on themes. There will be an opportunity to complete another SDQ to analyse changes. We will also re-assess as to whether we all feel the child could benefit from extending sessions past the agreed 16.

Ending session: Parents and I meet following the final (16th) therapy session and we review the journey. A parent will also complete a final SDQ questionnaire. I will share any resources that will support moving forward without therapy sessions and we will look at when and why these will be helpful.

Report: This is an optional, written report which will summarise the journey and changes that have been recorded as the sessions for your child have progressed. It will explore the original presenting issues, the outcomes hoped for and how these have been met. The report will also show the recorded Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire scores at the beginning of therapy in comparison to the end. I will also include general themes explored in sessions and record the suggestions for moving forward as a family when therapy has ended.

Please note: You can choose to pay in advance of the session via BACS or on the day in cash or card. You are also able to purchase in advance month-by-month sessions, in a block.

Payment and Cancellation

Any sessions that are missed with less than 48 hours’ notice are due in full.

If for any reason you require a refund prior to the end of the block of sessions and have given more than 48 hours’ notice, this would be made on a basis calculated for the full cost of the session.

Availability

Please contact me for my current availability and typically, we will agree a regular appointment day and time following the assessment if you decide to go ahead with sessions.
