‘When we are no longer able to change
a situation – we are challenged to
change ourselves.’

Viktor E. Frankl

Fees and other practicalities

Individual therapy:  a standard 50 minute session is charged at £45-£55, depending on means. A rate of £30 is available for students or those on lower incomes.

Couples therapy:  £75 for a 1hr 15 min session, and £60 for a 50 minute session.


Weekly therapy is the norm for most clients but by no means for all.


If you miss an agreed session half the fee would still be payable unless you give me at least 24 hours’ notice.


​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.

meeting together

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.

Home Visits

For whatever reason, attending counselling sessions at my office in central Chester may prove difficult if not impossible for you - and online counselling may not be right for you either. To overcome these barriers to accessing support, I offer home visits.


The fee remains the same as standard on-site sessions if you are live within three miles of my office; if you live further afield there will be an additional travel charge to consider.


Therapy is generally aided by taking place in an environment of quiet and calm. To this end you will agree, as far as is possible, to provide a safe and undisturbed space in your home for the duration of the session. Prior to the first visit we will come up with some basic ‘ground rules’ to make home visits a positive experience for both of us.

Please contact me for more information.
