Appointments and Costs
For our first appointment we will get an understanding of the issues and I can answer any questions or concerns you might have. It is very much a two-way interaction.
After this, appointments take place weekly. They last 50 minutes. The time is yours, so please arrive on time as I can not generally go over.
As each situation is unique there is no standard time-frame for a course of therapy. Initially we contract for six sessions, then we review the work we’ve done and decide the best course of action.
The cost is €60 per session for individual one to one counselling. Depending on circumstances, I sometimes offer a sliding scale on fees. We can discuss this during our first meeting. Please bare in mind there are considerable room-rental, insurance, supervision, professional memberships and continued study/professional development costs to take into account before any fee for my time. As such I can not go below €40 per session.
Outdoors work / Ecotherapy fees are as above as the counselling space is block booked in case of bad weather etc.
Fees are payable at the end of each session or end of month.
I try not to turn any person away who is seeking help. I trust that we will reach a fair and manageable fee considering your circumstances and the professional service I provide.
Persons requesting reduced cost Counselling & Psychotherapy should hold a valid medical card, or a student identity card, or social services documentation. Please bring on the first session.
A short wait list can be expected and sessions will normally be held during off-peak hrs.
Once we agree to start, each session, the room and my professional services, are kept available each week for you. Therefore the following cancellation policy applies.
If you need to cancel or reschedule 48 hours or more prior to an appointment – no fee is charged. Up to 24 hours – €20 administration/room rental fee will be charged (applicable to All including reduced cost clients). Cancelling on the day or Failure to show for an appointment – the full session fee will be charged.
