Clients in individual therapy generally meet with me once weekly for a 50-minute session. While couples often derive the most benefit from weekly sessions too, in practice a more ad hoc arrangement is sometimes called for due to the difficulty of establishing a regular appointment schedule when the ‘client’ is two people rather than one. Couples therapy consultations last for 60 minutes.
As a guide, the fee you pay should place a value on your therapy that is meaningful to you without subjecting you to financial hardship. My standard fees are £65 for an individual consultation and £75 for a couples consultation. This is what you can expect to pay if you are in substantial employment.
There is some scope for negotiation depending on your circumstances. If you are on a limited income, we might agree a lower fee. Feel free to enquire about the availability of concessionary places. If you are a high earner, I will normally suggest a higher fee, up to a maximum £85 for individuals and £100 for couples.
