Cheltenham and Online sessions
When could we meet?
I work in Cheltenham on Tuesdays and Thursdays and have appointments during the day and early evening. I also offer the option of online sessions for those who would prefer to meet via Skype or Zoom (see below).
Sessions are usually on a weekly basis but sometimes fortnightly slots are a possibility. The frequency of life coaching sessions would be mutually agreed, depending on your needs, however can be on a less frequent basis.
In Cheltenham I practice at the Practice Rooms which is a lovely space on a quiet street in the centre of the city. Sessions are held in a very spacious, beautiful and peaceful room which provides an ideal therapeutic setting.
How to find The Practice Rooms
I offer the flexibility of working on the phone or through an online platform such as Skype or Zoom. This can work very well for couples or individuals who are unable to attend face to face sessions due to various reasons e.g. health, childcare, or work scheduling issues. I am very experienced working online and have found it can be just as helpful and effective as meeting in person. I offer online sessions on different days of the week (daytime to early evening).
How long is each session?
The initial telephone consultation is up to 20 minutes.
Each couples counselling, psychotherapy or life coaching session is 50 minutes.
I also offer longer sessions e.g. 80 minutes, which is helpful for deeper and more intensive work.
How much will it cost?
For individual counselling, psychotherapy, or life coaching the fee is on a sliding scale from £50 - £60 per session (depending on your financial circumstances, you choose the amount on this scale you can pay).
For couples therapy the fee is on a sliding scale from £65 - £75 per session (depending on your financial circumstances, you choose the amount on this scale you can pay).
I offer a limited number of concessionary places for those on low incomes.
Payment is required on the day of our appointment (before or after the session).
I am a registered provider with Aviva, WPA, and BUPA insurance, so if you have cover you may be able to claim for the sessions. Otherwise if your work, legal claim or health insurance is paying then the fee for counselling is £70 per session.
What if I have to cancel an appointment?
If you cancel a session, with less than a week’s notice, you will be required to pay for this unless we can find a mutually convenient alternative time that week. My intention is to offer the best balance between consistency and flexibility.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to make contact.
