What to Expect & Cost

Elaine for website-2

I understand that you may be apprehensive about taking the first step of contacting me. The fact that you have found your way to this website means that you have realised you would like some help to make the changes you need to live a happier life.   Well done, you have already taken a really positive and potentially life changing step. Perhaps some information about what to expect might be helpful.

On receiving your call or email, we will arrange a mutually convenient time for your first session.  During the first session I will explain what I am able to offer you and you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.  This will enable you to decide if you think the arrangement will suit you and give you an opportunity to meet me.  There will be time during the first session to talk about what is troubling you.

Sessions are 50 minutes in duration and take place on a regular, weekly basis. Clients are encouraged to commit to attending 6 sessions after which time their situation, and progress, is reviewed. The cost is £40 per session and can be paid by cash or BACS payment. There is a discount available if you pay for 6 sessions in advance.

Telephone counselling sessions are available as well as home visits depending on your circumstances (for which there will be an additional fee to cover mileage and travel time).
