Fees

How much does counselling cost?

One of the important questions asked is how much does counselling cost? This varies depending on how long you want your session to be.

The most common session is 50 mins each week but are happy to tailor the sessions to your requirements. For example:

  • £30 for a 30 minute session
  • £50 for a 50 minute session
  • £90 for a 1.5 hour session
  • £120 for a 2 hour session

How to pay

You can pay by bank transfer (details available during booking or on request). Please do this at least 24 hours before your session. You can also pay by cash on the day.

Fees will be reviewed annually in January. A period of three months’ notice will be given to anyone currently in counselling.

Cancellations

A 24 hour cancellation policy is in place.  If you cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice the session fee will still be payable.

The charge is payable because we have allocated our time which cannot then be offered to anyone else.

We appreciate that genuine emergencies do occasionally happen. If you need to cancel at short notice we’ll do our best to reschedule your session. We may waive or reduce the fee if this isn’t possible. 

Where appointments are cancelled frequently within the 24 hour window, you may be asked for payment in advance. This will not be refunded if you cancel within the 24 hour period.

If you have not made contact 15 minutes into your session time, it will be assumed you are not coming and the session fee will be payable.

If we cancel

We’ll try and give you as much notice as possible if we need to cancel. In the event that we do need to cancel, you won’t be charged for the cancelled session. We’ll then try and reschedule to a time which works best for you.
