Fees

Sam Simpson CounsellingIn the first instance, please call or e-mail for an initial conversation about what you’re looking for and what I offer.

I usually then suggest we meet for a no-obligation introductory session of 30 minutes. I don’t charge for this session, and it comes with no conditions or expectations. It’s a chance for us to meet and see whether we feel comfortable and would like to work together. It also gives you an opportunity to tell me more about your personal circumstances, and to ask me whatever you need to know about me and about how I work.

After that, my standard fee for both counselling and supervision is £65 per 1-hour session.

If you would like to work with me and are unable to pay my full fee on a regular basis, I offer some concessionary rates and would be open to discussing this further.

I review my fees each year in January.

Cancellation

I require one week’s notice of cancellation. In the absence of such notice I will charge for the missed session at the usual rate. Personal circumstances will be considered, however, and I will always do my best to offer an alternative slot.

Ending

My preference would be that we talk about an ending and make time to reflect on and honour our work together. To this end, I ask for a week’s notice when ending counselling and for a session’s notice when ending supervision.
