Fees 2021

What are the costs for counselling, psychotherapy & EMDR?

Charging for therapy is a delicate matter and the cost can sometimes feel overwhelming for some, or appear too small for others. I experimented over the years with fee structures and what I noticed is that those who value their own wellbeing are more likely to benefit from therapy. Investment and commitment in your therapy is a positive sign and will create better therapeutic outcomes. My prices are adjusted annually and below is my fee structure for 2021.

First Contact:

The first contact over phone is free and for us both to get to know each other. My aim is to get a sense for what may be going on for you so I understand whether I can help you. During this call we agree on a day and time for a first introductory session. To book the session I will send an invoice which is payable in advance before the session. During the introductory session we will also discuss my pricing and billing to determine what suits you best.

Frequently
Asked
Questions:

How do I pay for my sessions?
Fees are payable by card at my office in Elviria. To book an online session, I will email an invoice and the fee is due before the session.

Can I cancel my session?
Sessions can be cancelled 3 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 preferable. Therefore I don’t work on a fortnightly or monthly basis. For EMDR I sometimes meet clients 2-3 times a week.

When do I need extended sessions?
Extended sessions are necessary for couples counselling and beneficial for EMDR processing. During our introductory session I will explain when they may be needed. For couples, that’s usually after the introductory sessions and for EMDR usually after an assessment which is at least four regular sessions.

Do you offer concessions?
My fees are non-negotiable. Here is a list of affordable counselling services in the UK.

Do you accept my private health insurance?
Please look on the website of your health insurance provider to find a suitable therapist who will accept your cover. I don’t work with health insurance companies.

I started working with you in 2020. Will my fees change as well?
All contractually agreed fees before 2021 will remain intakt until we formally end therapy.
