What are the costs of qualified counselling?
I understand that the cost of counselling or coaching can be very daunting. I understand that it is a huge investment in both time and money and I will do my absolute best to help you to get the most out of this investment in yourself. I also offer flexibility as to whether appointments are weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Most people start with weekly sessions and then increase the gaps between appointments as the work progresses.
It takes many years of training to become a qualified counsellor. The fees I charge cover the cost of my time, training, insurance, membership of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), supervision, continued professional development and associated costs which enable me to work ethically and professionally. I also volunteer a proportion of my time and for this reason, the average cost of a private counselling session is £60 - £70.
