i offer a choice between a free 20 minute introductory session or a full fee paying session for our first initial appointment. clients are sometimes ready to start therapy whilst others feel they would like to see my offices and meet me first. i will be very happy to arrange whichever is best for you.
for a child's session, a 20 minute meeting, free of charge, is mandatory to explore their situation with their caregiver and to find out the best way forward in organising a first session or offering further referral
we will arrange to meet at the frequency which works best for you. this is usually a weekly appointment but can be fortnightly, monthly, twice weekly and can be flexible with your needs and commitments.
there is no limit to the number of sessions you can have. we will naturally review our work together as we go and you will be free to start and stop our sessions as you wish.
for children's sessions, choosing a time in the school day which impacts the child the least (for example, not missing their music lesson each week if this is their favourite part of the day) is highly recommended.
my standard fee is £50 per session. as i deeply believe that money should not be a barrier to receiving vital support when we seek it, my rate is flexible and i will ask you, at our first session, which amount will be the most workable for you. this can change, too, according to any financial stresses that may come along, such as christmas spending
