Talking Therapy Fees

£45 per 50 minute session for individuals
£60 per 60 minute session for couples

The initial assessment session costs the same as subsequent sessions.

PICT Therapy Fees

£50 per 60 minute PICT session
£75 per 90 minute PICT session
£100 per 2 hour PICT session

If you definitely know you want to do PICT from the start, we can start with a 60 minute PICT assessment session. However, if you're not sure what therapy would be best for you, we would have at least one 50 minute talking therapy session first, to help you work that out.


Once you sign up for counselling, the session time is booked exclusively for you each week (or fortnight in exceptional cases). I'll ask you to agree to my contract after your second session, after which I do have to charge the full amount for any sessions you are unable to attend.

If you can give 72 hours notice (e.g. a planned holiday) then a reduced holding fee applies. Currently these holding fees are as follows:
  • £45 / £50 session - £25 holding fee
  • £60 session - £30 holding fee
  • £75 session - £40 holding fee
  • £100 session - £50 holding fee

Where possible I will offer you an alternative session time rather than having you miss out on the session.

Reduced Rate

I have a limited number of spaces available at a reduced rate. Please mention your need for a reduced rate at the enquiry stage in case these spaces are already filled. Thanks!
