FEES: I am a Registered and Accredited Member of BACP (MBACP Accred). I am a Registered Counsellor/Psychotherapist with BUPA, Vitality, AXA and AVIVA Approved Counsellor and an Associate Counsellor with the National Police Firearms Officers Association and Lancashire Police HQ. My sessions last for 50 minutes.
My Private Practice fees are £45 for Individual Counselling and £55 for Couples' or Relationship Counselling, whether this is face to face or telephone. Please note that you must ensure privacy on your side for telephone counselling.
My Private Supervision Fees are £50 per 1.5 hours, whether face to face or telephone.
EAP and Insurance Fees are arranged directly with the organisation except for excesses which the client is responsible to pay to myself.
CONTRACT: During the first session, we will complete a Contract of Counselling. This will detail what to expect from Counselling, including confidentiality, session length, contact details, fees and cancellation terms. Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have in order that you feel happy with the Counselling Contract.
FIRST SESSION: 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, amend or rearrange 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, amend or otherwise rearrange 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 by bank transfer before the next session takes place. I do follow my cancellation policy 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, cancelled or altered 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 or cancel an appointment, please ring: 07545 868494, giving 48 hours' notice.
