Make TIME for yourself. You're IMPORTANT.
What is the cost of the Therapy / Supervision / Group / Workshop sessions?
I offer a FREE 15 minute consultation as a starting point where we can speak together about your needs. The first time we meet I'll ask you to give me a brief description of what you're looking for and I'll let you know how I may be able to assist you.
I find that people can get a good sense of me in this meeting and decide if we can work together or not. I'll confirm my availability and discuss more about the fees. If it feels like a good fit for both of us, we'll then be able set up our first appointment. If I don't think I am the best therapist/supervisor/group facilitator for you, I am well connected nationally and internationally and would be happy to refer you to someone who may be better suited to you.
The PRICES range between $150 and $250 for INDIVIDUAL psychotherapy and supervision. The GROUP sessions are $25 per session and are paid in a block of 6 which is normally paid a week before the START date.
The workshops vary in prices but can be found on the flyers under services/workshops.
Remember if you think a professional is expensive, wait till you've hire an amateur.
I'll go through EXACT current fees in depth once we've made contact. I do also offer a sliding scale to try to make the therapy/supervision/groups affordable for everyone.
Unemployment and students rates also apply.
Payments are normally made by PayPal, cash or bank transfers.
