Fees and Terms


As coaching is tailored specifically to your situation, the duration of sessions may vary between one hour and a whole day, for shadowing, observing or on-site analysis.  

A first, half-hour conversation is free of charge, to explore the nature of the coaching you require and decide whether and how to proceed.

Fees vary depending on your situation, the nature of the work, the extent of the commitment and whether you are paying for yourself privately or have access to funding, such as from your employer.  We would normally charge a lower fee if you were to contract for a larger number of sessions or days.

Travel, subsistence and accommodation expenses are charged as incurred.


Counselling and Psychotherapy

Appointments are normally for one hour and cost £45 for an individual and £55 for a couple.

Our main consulting rooms are in Pucklechurch, South Gloucestershire, BS16 9RH, though it may be possible to arrange sessions in Bristol too.

Your first appointment includes an extra half-hour at the start, without charge, for us to decide whether we can - and want to - work together. 

We would agree mutually to contract for a certain number of sessions, depending on what is most likely to meet your needs.  Our contract includes commitments we make to each other to ensure the best possible outcome.  Contracts can be reviewed at any stage to ensure they are still right, for both of us.

For counselling, clients very often make a contract for six or eight sessions.  

Psychotherapy usually needs a longer term commitment.  Our first contract would still include how many sessions we commit to in advance, to work towards an agreed goal.  Contracts may then be reviewed and renewed together as we identify and progress towards new goals. 

Payment is requested in advance, please, by bank transfer or cash (account details are available on request when contracting).
