Frequency, Cancellations and Holidays
Therapy tends to work best when there is commitment and regularity from both of us. We will normally meet once or twice a week at the same time. It is sometimes appropriate for sessions to be more or less frequent than this.
Each session is fifty minutes; if you arrive part way through your allotted time, I will see you for the remainder of the time.
I work with the condition that you will pay the full fee for any session that is missed or cancelled. This allows for regularity of sessions, without which it can be difficult to enter the process of therapy. If you are away, I offer phone or Skype sessions. You may, with a week’s notice, miss up to two sessions a year without being charged. It is important that you understand this and agree to it before starting therapy with me.
In addition, I tend to have a break three times a year, in December, spring and in the summer; this usually amounts to between nine or ten weeks off a year. I will inform you well in advance of any weeks I am away and will try to give a minimum of 48 hours notice of any cancelled sessions.
Session Fees and Payment
I charge between £60 and £80 per session depending on the time of day and your income. Evening sessions are more expensive.
I prefer to be paid every session by either cash or cheque.
I will give you advance notice of any increase in fees. I review my fees annually in April.
I have a number of spaces for those who cannot afford my fees. Please mention this when you first get in touch. There is currently a waiting list for these places.
I work from two places:
