How to Pay for a Counselling Session.
- IN PERSON: by cash, cheque [made out to Dean Richardson], credit/debit card, Apple Pay or Google Pay,
- ONLINE: credit/debit card, bank transfer* or PayPal (using the form on this page).
There are no surcharges for paying by card, Contactless, Apple Pay, Google Pay nor PayPal.
First Session Deposits.
To confirm your first session I will ask for a £30 deposit to be sent prior to the appointment. Your first session’s appointment date/time is not confirmed until the deposit is received.
Your deposit comes off your first session fee, the remainder of which is payable on the day of the appointment. So, if the session fee is £45.00 – you pay a deposit of £30 and £15 is payable on the day of the session.
After our first session, all subsequent sessions are payable weekly, on the day of the session, in full (no deposit is required).
If you cancel our first appointment with a minimum of 48 hours notice I will refund your £30 deposit.
If you cancel our first appointment with less than 48 hours notice (or don’t appear for the appointment), your deposit goes towards funding my financial loses.
Paying by Banking App:
If you’d prefer to pay using your banking app, ask Dean for his sort code, account number and reference code.
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 £45 (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 £45, and Google Pay may require you to enter your pin for a payment greater than £45.
*Bank Transfers & Faster BACS Payments.
BACS payments are payments made from your bank account to another person's bank account. There's no fees for BACS payments. You can use your smartphone's banking app to set up and make payments this way. 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.
Optionally, if you have your own PayPal account, you may use the payment form (above) to begin a PayPal payment and select your bank account to make a transfer.
