Fees and other practicalities
Here is some information about appointments with Chester Counselling Service.
A counselling session lasts for 50 minutes. Weekly therapy is the norm for most clients but by no means for all.
I charge individual therapy sessions at £45 and a 1hr 15 minute couples session at £60. The fee is payable at the end of each session by cash, cheque or BACS. I have a limited number of places available at the reduced fee of £35. An initial 40 minute consultation session costs £20; this will be used for us to discover whether I am the right therapist for you.
If you miss an agreed session half the fee would still be payable unless you give me at least 24 hours notice.
I have slots available Monday - Saturday between 9.30am and 2.15pm, and again between 6.30pm and 9.15pm.
Off-road parking is available at my home on Ermine Road. There is also ample parking on the surrounding streets. Ermine Road is about a 10 minute walk from Chester Railway Station.
I invite interest from individuals and couples.
Meeting with your therapist for the first time can be a rather daunting experience. I will do everything I can do make our first encounter as relaxed as possible. We will meet in a garden office, separate from the main house and accessed by a side gate. It offers a discreet and safe place in which to meet.
