How much does a Counselling session cost
My session fee is £45 per 50 minute session face to face, or £40 for online sessions.
I offer sessions Face to Face - when Government Covid-19 guidelines allow, at Magnolia Centre in Mapperley Park, NG5 2EF.
Outdoor Counselling sessions are available though April to October at Colwick or Gedling Country Park in Nottinghamshire.
These sessions bring the additional benefits of being in nature/fresh air/exercise. Which are all beneficial for our health, and naturally help reduce feelings of anxiety.
Is Online Counselling as beneficial as face to face?
Since Covid-19, all Counsellors have become Online Counsellors. Though many of us wouldn't have chosen it before the pandemic, I think it is true to say that many therapists can now see the benefits of Online Counselling.
Recent research has shown that it can be as effective, if not more so, than face to face. Here's a link to one article.
Some of the obvious benefits are that there's no need to travel. This means that you're not restricted to area and can see a Therapist anywhere in the country. You can benefit from enjoying therapy in your own home (though certain rules apply in these situations). It is also great for the less mobile or disabled clients, who can benefit from Counselling in the comfort of their own surroundings.
Are Concessions available?
Yes, for the unemployed and low income, but for online sessions only.
How often do I need to attend for Counselling?
Weekly or fortnightly sessions are available.
What times are available?
My hours are;
Wednesday 6 - 8pm
Fridays 9.30 - 3.30pm
Saturdays 9.30 - 12.30pm
What happens in Counselling?
Initial contact me by email or telephone,
Follow up telephone consultation lasting around 15-20 minutes (if required). This is for me to get more background and also for you to decide if I am the Counsellor for you.
Following that, I will send you a short contract that outlines our work together.
We will then arrange our first session. Our session should where possible be at the same day/time every week.
Initially we will arrange an introductory 6 sessions, after which we will do a review to see if you feel you require ongoing therapy, and then arrange a further 6 sessions.
How long will I need Counselling for?
That's really up to you, and it depends on what the reason is for having Counselling. We will have reviews at regular intervals, and when you are feeling better about your situation, we will work towards an ending.
If you feel that you are ready to make contact, please call me on 07938 537146 and leave me a message to call you back, or email me via the contact form. I look forward to hearing from you.
