Fees and terms

 

Our psychotherapists* usually charge between £55 and £75 per 50 minutes session. Limited number of concessions are available. For more information about fees please contact the practitioners themselves.

Please be aware that you will have to pay for missed appointments (excluding your planned holidays). Practitioners will discuss this and the terms of the service they offer with you in the first sessions.

 

The sessions are completely confidential except under three circumstances:

 

(a) We regularly discuss our work with clinical supervisors, this is a standard practice and enables us to provide the best service possible;

(b) if the practitioner believes you may be at risk of harming yourself or others, however, he or she would only do this in extreme circumstances and would always try to discuss it with you first before taking any action;

(c) if required by a court of law to give evidence (e.g. in criminal proceedings).

We subscribe to the UKCP Code of Ethics.

* It is debatable how psychotherapy differs from counselling. In Gestalt Therapy psychotherapy is a postgraduate profession whilst counselling is an undergraduate one.
