Treatments, Timescales & Fees

Because it is so important for you to choose the right therapist for you, Joy offers:

Free 20 min Telephone Consultation prior to your Initial First Session

Free first initial 20 mins of a 60 min session which is at a reduced rate of £35 (Excludes Couples). In this session, you will receive a thorough assessment to identify your requirements, a proposed plan and something useful by way of support to take away with you.

AND all sessions are 60 mins as this is the way Joy prefers to work. Most therapists provide 50 min sessions which means that you will receive 6 sessions for the price of 5 sessions.

Once an initial assessment has been made during your first session, a timescale will always be discussed with you. The number of sessions required will depend on the nature and depth of the problem to be addressed.

Treatments & Fees

Reduced Fees – Students and Low Income

We do offer a limited number of reduced fees if you are a student or on a low income. We will discuss this in your initial first session and we hope you understand that you will need to provide proof of your financial situation.These fees are reduced to Counselling £45, Hypnotherapy £55.

Appointments Availability

Appointments are available – 7.30am – 7.30pm (last appointment) weekdays, with some weekend appointments available depending on our personal and professional commitments so please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Agreed sessions usually run on the same day and at the same time each week so by phoning and arranging your first appointment on the phone, it is easier to negotiate a mutually good day and time for you to attend, working in with day to day work and personal commitments. Of course, if you are a shift worker or have varied weekly timetables we always do our best to be flexible.

Due to the high demand for evening appointments: After 5.30pm, all sessions are charged at an additional rate of £5.00 and all first sessions are charged at the full rate.

Missed Appointments/Cancellations Policy
Please be aware that missed appointments are charged at the full fee unless 24 hours notice is given. This is necessary because we have usually put time and effort into preparing for your session and without enough notice, we cannot arrange for another client to fill your appointment time. However, in most cases, we will reduce the cost of your next appointment by 50%.
