CLARE ALLEN COUNSELLING
Mental Health Service · Private Counselling
How often do I attend?
The counselling is weekly; I believe this gives you a better chance of making progress than if you were to attend less frequently. Generally speaking, clients who attend regular weekly sessions, especially in the early days, seem to get more out of the counselling than those whose attendance is more erratic.
What are your fees?
£50 per session. I have two concessionary spaces charged at a rate of £35. These spaces are for those working part-time hours/students. Please note these sessions are often taken.
How many sessions do I need?
This will depend entirely on your needs. Everyone is unique & every journey is different.
Some people require in-depth counselling over a period of years, whilst others prefer to address a specifc problem over a set period of time.
I work in an open-ended manner which means you can have as many sessions as you need.
What happens if I cancel a session?
The full fee is charged if I do not receive 48 hours notice. Any other cancellations are charged at a rate of £15. This includes planned holidays, work commitments etc. Unlike a Drs surgery for example, if you are away, your session time is not offered out to anyone else, so the slot remains empty when you are away. Therefore the cancellation fee holds your slot open for you until you return & it also covers my business costs. Please note this does not apply over bank holidays and for a 2 week period over Christmas.
