Fees and Payment
Hay Counselling Fees
My standard rate per 50-minute session is £60.
I do have some flexibility for those on limited incomes, and can offer reduced rates down to £35 where necessary.
If you think you will struggle to pay the standard rate on an ongoing basis, please let me know when you first contact me.
Payment is due at the beginning of each session and can be made by cash or cheque.
Scheduling and Cancellations
Sessions last for 50 minutes and are normally scheduled on a weekly basis, at the same time each week.
In order for me to run my practice efficiently and fairly, missed sessions and cancellations are chargeable unless at least one week’s notice is given.
Private Health Insurance
I am a registered practitioner with AXA and Aviva private healthcare. If you are insured with one of these providers, they may be able to cover the cost of your sessions. Just check that your policy includes counselling and/or psychotherapy, and confirm with your insurer how many sessions will be covered, and whether or not you’ll need a referral from your GP. Once your insurer has agreed cover, all you need to do is give me your policy number and authorisation code when booking your first appointment. I will then liaise with your insurers to obtain coverage for further appointments, send invoices and track payments. Insurance fees for counselling and psychotherapy are £80.
