My rate is £40 per 50-minute session for individuals, £50 for couples.

The initial assessment session costs the same as all subsequent sessions.


Once you sign up for counselling, the session time is booked exclusively for you each week. Consequently I do have to charge the full amount for sessions you are unable to attend.

If you can give 48 hours notice (e.g. a planned holiday) then a reduced holding fee applies. Currently these holding fees are as follows:
  • £40 session - £25 holding fee
  • £50 session - £35 holding fee

Reduced Rate

I have a limited number of spaces available at a reduced rate i.e. one £30 (daytime)/£35 (evening) space for students and one short-term weekday daytime space for any individual or couple genuinely unable to pay the full fee. Please mention your need for a reduced rate at the enquiry stage in case these spaces are already filled. Thanks!
