FEES: I am a Registered and Accredited Member of BACP (MBACP Accred). I am also a BUPA, Vitality, AXA and AVIVA Approved Counsellor and an Associate Counsellor with the National Police Firearms Officers Association and Lancashire Police HQ. I am also a qualified EMDR Therapist and in Critical Incident Management (CISM).
My Private Practice fees for face to face, telephone or video sessions are shown below. I offer a choice of 50 minute session for 75 minute sessions (which are especially suitable for EMDR and Couples' Counselling). Please note that you must ensure privacy on your side for telephone and video counselling.
SUPERVISION SESSIONS: My Private Supervision Fees are £50 per 1.5 hours for face to face, video or telephone sessions.
EAP and Insurance Fees are invoiced directly with the organisation except for excesses which the client is responsible to pay directly to myself.
CONTRACT: During the first session, we complete a Contract of Counselling. This will explain what to expect from Counselling, including confidentiality, session length, contact details, fees and cancellation terms. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you need to, in order to feel happy with the Counselling Contract.
FEE PAYMENT: Cash or card payment is required at the beginning of each session. In the event of bank transfers being agreed, then payment should be received on the day before the session.
CANCELLATION TERMS: Counselling involves ongoing commitment from both the Client(s) and the Counsellor. We each agree to attend all appointments at the arranged time. If I need to cancel, I will give you as much notice as possible. If you need to cancel, postpone, rearrange or in any way change an appointment for any reason, please let me know at least 48 hours prior to your appointment, in order that I can offer this to another client. We can then rearrange your appointment. However, if you cancel, postpone, rearrange or otherwise change an appointment with less than 48 hours' notice, or in the event of non-attendance with no notice, the full fee for the missed session must be paid in full before the next session takes place. I do follow my cancellation terms strictly as I have reserved the appointment for you whether you attend or not. On most occasions, I will need to spend your non-attended session in my office, whilst waiting for my next client.
DELAYED ARRIVAL: If you arrive late for a session, please understand that it will still need to end at the appointed time, with the full fee payable, as I do have to keep to appointment times for other Clients.
BOOKING: To book, amend, rearrange, change or cancel an appointment, please ring: 07545 868494, giving 48 hours' notice.
