Some thoughts about spending on yourself
Sometimes people find it difficult to justify spending money on their health and wellbeing, yet the reality is that free or subsidised therapy services are very limited. As a private practitioner, my fees reflect my training and experience balanced with my wish to offer affordable therapy. It may help to think of paying for counselling as an investment in yourself, and that the very act of taking this step demonstrates a belief in your own worth. I understand that allowing yourself this right can be very difficult, and that you may need to take the decision one session at a time.
If you’ve reached this page, and believe that you can’t afford my fees, but still feel I might be the right therapist for you, then please get in touch. I can offer a limited number of reduced-fee appointments and am always happy to discuss this option.
I review my fee annually with any change taking effect from 1 January. Fee increases are not applied to existing clients with whom I have signed a contract and who are paying the full fee, but if we continue working together for over a year I reserve the right to raise my fees in the second year.
