Fee
My day fee is 85. My evening fee is 100. A regular session lasts 50 minutes. The initial session is 85 and lasts one hour. The fee is guaranteed to remain as agreed for a calendar year.

My cancellation policy is 3 working days notice. If you give me less notice or you miss a session with no cancellation then the full fee is payable. This is the case even if you have to miss the session because of something out of your control such as illness or a car breakdown.

My fees for EMDR therapy are different as the sessions can be longer and so they are as follows: EMDR 50 min session: 85
EMDR Double session 170 EMDR 2 hour session 210
