Affordable Prices

Affordable private counselling costs. Highly experienced, fully qualified & effective Havant Counsellor, Dean Richardson MNCS(Accredited Registrant).

Pay as you Go

Pay for the counselling service you need. No one-size-fits-all costs.

Different costs for different services and session lengths.

Sliding Scale

Low income? Havant Counselling may be able to invite you to discuss a lower counselling session fee.

You can Afford Private Counselling.

Only pay for the cost of the counselling service you need.

You will only pay-as-you-go for each weekly session (no massive monthly invoices, or paying for sessions up-front).

Counselling fee are paid once a week – and with Havant Counselling no VAT is added on top.

For individual and couple counselling, fees are per 50-minute session (90 minute sessions are available/optional if you prefer).

For group counselling, fees are per 90-minute weekly session.

Some people prefer to attend longer sessions (e.g. 90 minutes) and some people prefer to meet more regularly than once a week. Many options can be discussed if you choose.

You will be given full written details in a welcome pack during your first session.

Counselling Fees

Havant Counselling’s Price Guarantee.

No fee increases during the time you’re in counselling*. The fee charged when we start our work, will not change for the entire time we work together.

Whether we work for a handful of sessions, or for several years, you will pay the same fee as when we began.

*Should we agree for you to pay a lower fee (sliding scale / a fee you can responsibly afford) the fee you pay will be based upon your income and expenses. So, when your circumstances change (e.g. you gain a larger income, or your expenses change) then your fee will change to reflect this fairly. This is to sure that you are paying what you can afford.

*1 – The per-person per-session fee may be flexible if the fee is spread across all participants. For example, the cost of a 4-member group would be £140; if one person wished to pay less (£20) and another person were to pay more (£50) then this would be acceptable provided that the whole group agreed to this and the total the group paid was still £140.

Counselling Fees may be paid online (using my online/PayPal page) by card, bank transfer or a PayPal account. They may also be paid in person by cash, cheque or credit card. There is a small fee for paying by credit card whether online or in person.

I ask for a refundable £30 deposit to secure our first session. This deposit is refundable if you cancel with greater than 48 hours notice, otherwise it is not.

Methods of Payment.

I accept payments by cash, cheques, card, banking apps, bank transfer, Google Pay, Apple Pay or PayPal (see: paying online).

Chip-n-pin & Contactless cards Accepted in Person.

You may pay for your counselling session in person using your credit or debit card. Chip-n-pin, swipe and contactless cards are accepted.

Contactless cards currently limits a payment to a maximum of £30 (per-transaction).

Apply Pay & Google Pay Accepted in Person.

You may pay for your counselling session in person using Apple Pay or Google Pay, Smartphone and Smartwatch payments are accepted.

Apple & Google Pay have no maximum per-transaction limit, but Apple may not support a payment greater than £30, and Google Pay may require you to enter your pin for a payment greater than £30.

*Bank Transfers.

During our first appointment I will give you my bank account details so that you may pay using your own banking app if you wish.

If you have your own PayPal account, you may use the payment form (above) to begin a PayPal payment but then select your bank account to make a transfer.

Low Income Counselling Fees?

If you find private counselling costs difficult to afford, I offer a “sliding scale”. I may be able to offer you a lower cost based on your ability to pay.

We will need to have an open discussion, to talk about your income, savings and your expenses so that we can negotiate a fee that you can responsibly afford.

IMPORTANT: if you are interested in discussing a lower fee, you must bring this up when you contact me. Places are strictly limited and if I have no places available you will need to know this during our initial correspondence. Asking to pay a lower fee when you meet me in person will not be possible to accommodate.
