I do carry a couple of lower fee concessionary places each week. If you want to enquire about one of these, please let me know, but please also be aware that these are quite often already reserved. NB: This also applies for Key Workers/NHS staff/furloughed employees during the Covid19 pandemic.
Session fees can be paid by cash (if in person), Bank Transfer or Paypal, either in advance or at the time of the session.
In setting my fees I try to strike a balance between my worth as an experienced therapist who is solely self-employed alongside an affordable structure which allows people with a range of incomes to be able to access therapy with me.
My fees are revised periodically and I undertake to give you a minimum of one-month notice of any changes. I also trust that if your income changes (up or down), you will let me know and we can reflect that in a renegotiated fee.
I am also willing, if it’s appropriate to see you on a more flexible basis (fortnightly, monthly check-in etc) and this can spread your therapy cost out. It may mean progress is a bit slower or you do more work between sessions yourself.
If your income is below £22,000 p.a. you may be eligible for low-cost counselling at either The Psychosynthesis Trust or one of the LGBT charities, including The Albany Trust. I can also make other recommendations for low cost counselling if required.
I comply with the Data Protection Act and am Registered with the ICO, (Registration Reference: ZA158801).
I have password protection and encryption on all devices that use electronic data, such as computer/phone/tablet. No one has access to passwords on devices but me, so if we communicate via any of those methods in the way of email or text, you can be assured of confidentiality. I will only keep said correspondence for as long as necessary either to process your request, or during and after either our correspondence or our working together, after such times, the data will be deleted.
