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 the other associated costs which enable me to work ethically and professionally.  I also volunteer a proportion of my time working for charitable organisations. For these reasons the average cost of a private counselling session is £70 - £90 but I will also support you with suggestions for resources to help you between sessions if you would like them. 

I am always happy to discuss costs to accommodate your means and needs

The sessions are normally 50-60 minutes, however, we can also discuss the length of sessions to suit individual needs
