I work in a University Counselling Service the rest of the week but am sometimes able to offer a limited number of Hyperemesis Counselling sessions on other days. Please enquire for further details.
Fees and Payment
The fee for a 50 minute counselling session is £40. This is payable in advance by BACS online bank transfer (details available on request) or by PayPal. To pay for a booked counselling session by PayPal please click here
50 minute counselling sessions are usually arranged at the same time on a weekly basis. I work with clients on a short term (suggested minimum 3 sessions) or longer term basis, depending on the level of support required (discussed in first appointment). Where a client is too unwell to attend for 50 minutes, a shorter session may be arranged.
The full fee is usually payable for any counselling sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice. Where a client feels too unwell to attend for a full 50 minutes due to nausea or vomiting mid-session, a reduced fee may be charged (discussed in first appointment).
Clients ‘attend’ counselling sessions by telephoning me on the Hyperemesis Counselling landline telephone number at the agreed time. It is preferable for us both to use a landline telephone so that we can hear each other clearly. Where this is not possible, you may use a mobile telephone. You are encouraged to call from somewhere that is private and comfortable and where you will not be interrupted.
I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions' Good Practice guidelines on confidentiality when working with all clients. There will be an opportunity to discuss this in your first appointment.
The first part of your first appointment will take the form of an assessment. You will be invited to tell me something about your experience of pregnancy sickness and what you might be looking for from counselling. I will ask you some questions to make sure that how I work is appropriate for you. We will establish whether it feels right for us to work together and the level of support you feel you might need at this time.
