How many sessions will I need?
This all depends on what you want to achieve from counselling. I offer both open ended and time limited sessions. This will be discussed during your FREE consultation.
How much do you charge?CCT charge £45 per 50 minute session. A discounted rate is offered for blocked bookings - 10 sessions will be charged at £40 per 50 minute session - total advance booking fee will be £400 (instead of £450)!
What times are available?CCT offer sessions on weekdays during the day and also evening slots. **Limited** Saturday slots are also available.
What if I miss a session?As long as you provide 48 hours notice then I can rebook your session at a time more suitable for you. As sessions are carefully selected and booked to suit the individual it will not be possible to cover sessions when notice of less than 48 hours is given and therefore you will be charged for sessions missed in these circumstances.
