Admin / Fees

Fees
 
My fees reflect my skill, experience and level of training as a UKCP registered psychotherapist and counsellor practising in Brighton and Hove.
 
Individual Adults
£60 per fifty-minute initial consultation
£60 per fifty-minute weekly counselling or psychotherapy session
£65 per fifty-minute consultation / session for medical insurance claims invoiced directly
Reduced fees considered – please enquire at the outset. Excludes Mondays at 6pm and 7pm.
 
Couples / Pairs (over 18 years only)
No couples’ counselling spaces for the foreseeable future
 
Payment
For an initial consultation, I accept payment by direct bank transfer (BACS) at the time of booking. For one-to-one therapy, all subsequent sessions can either be paid for on a weekly basis by cash or on a monthly basis by BACS. For joint therapy, session fees are payable in blocks of three (in advance) by BACS. Please note that I do not accept cheques.
 
Frequency
Counselling or psychotherapy sessions with me involve a weekly commitment. As such, it is important that you are able to make the space in your life to accommodate this. Sessions are usually held on the same day at the same time. However, I can occasionally accommodate people who work certain shift patterns – please enquire.
 
Cancellations
Please note that you will be expected to pay for sessions you have missed unless you contact me at least one week (five clear days) in advance to cancel. This enables me to maintain your regular appointment time for the duration of your counselling or psychotherapy. I also ask that, outside of planned holidays, you keep one-off cancellations to a minimum. If you are unable to attend on a regular weekly basis (e.g. cancelling once or more a month or due to extended holidays), I may have to end therapy.
 
Number of Sessions
I work on an open-ended basis with no set minimum or maximum number of sessions.
 
Medical Insurance Claims
I am a registered psychotherapist with Aviva Medical Insurance.
 
Fee Increases
Fees for individuals are held for a minimum of 3 years from when you start counselling or psychotherapy, excluding breaks. A minimum of four weeks’ notice will be given of any price increases.
