What are the costs for counselling, psychotherapy & EMDR?
My fees are adjusted annually to cover for the rising costs of running my business. If you are an existing client and started working with me in prior to 2022 you will not be affected by the 2022 fee adjustments.
The first contact is free and for us both to get to know each other a little. My aim is to get a sense for what may be going on for you so I understand whether I can help you. You can self book a free 15-20 minute phone consultation with me through my client portal.
Sometimes, phone calls can be stressful for some people. If that’s the case for you, you can also email me. Please let me explicitly know that you prefer to communicate via email to arrange a session.
Your First Session:
For the first session, I charge £75 for individuals or £100 for couples. If we already have discussed the process, please feel free to go ahead and book your session via my client portal:
During your first session, we will also discuss the ongoing costs of therapy and payment arrangements.
Psychotherapy, EMDR & Intimate Partners/Couples
After the first session you have a couple of days to decide whether you would like to work with me. The cost for counselling, psychotherapy and EMDR then depends on how you would like to book and pay your sessions.
Session by Session Invoicing
If your schedule is unpredictable and you can’t commit to a weekly routine, I charge £85 for individuals or £120 for couples. Please use my client portal to book your sessions:
Advance Booking of 3 sessions
If you book 3 session in advance at a regular time and day, my admin decreases significantly. With less admin my fees decrease also to £80 for individuals or £110 for couples.
Advance Booking of 5 sessions
If you book 5 session in advance my fees decrease to £75 for individuals or £100 for couples.
How do I pay for my sessions?
To book a single session please use the self booking portal. Payments can be made at the end to reserve your appointment. For regular weekly bookings I will provide invoices which can be paid via UK bank transfer.
Can I cancel or reschedule my session?
Sessions can be cancelled or rescheduled up to 2 days in advance at no extra cost. Otherwise the full fee is charged.
How often do we have to meet?
For therapy to be most effective, a weekly routine is essential. Some clients appreciate to meet more frequently (e.g. twice a week), whereas others prefer to meet every other week when they near the end of treatment. We will discuss the frequency in our first few sessions to find out what suits you best.
When do I need extended sessions?
Extended sessions are beneficial for EMDR, couples and intimate partner therapy. During our introductory session I will explain when they may be needed.
Do you offer concessions?
I offer temporary concessions to longterm clients who are committed to their therapy when they experience financial hardship. Here is a list of affordable counselling services in the UK.
Do you accept my private health insurance?
I don’t work with health insurance companies due to the extra admin burden. However, some international insurances may cover parts of your bill which you need to reclaim from them. You need to let your insurance know that I am accredited as a full clinical member of the UKCP to check if they will reimburse my invoices to you.
I started working with you prior to 2022. Will my fees change as well?
All contractually agreed fees before 2022 will remain intakt until we formally end therapy.
