Payment is usually taken on the day of the session by bank transfer or PayPal. An electronic receipt will be given when payment is received. If payment is not received within 3 working days, I will get in touch to check in.
free initial consultation
If you are unsure about counselling but would like to discuss what counselling or therapy is and what you can expect from it, please get in touch. I offer a free initial consultation, usually between 30-45 minutes long, where we can go over what’s been on your mind and what you can expect from me in counselling or therapy.
zoom & phone counselling
I offer 60 minute video counselling services, using the platform Zoom, with added password protection for security. I also offer telephone counselling at the same rate. Cost: £35
Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I am currently unable to offer face-to-face counselling work – I am very much looking forward to being able to again soon. My current intention is to offer face-to-face work from January 2021 – this will be updated as and when further decisions are made and more information and guidelines come to light.
I also offer counselling by email. If this is something you don’t know much about but may be interested in, have a look at this page to read some more information about how it works, and then get in touch with me to discuss it further. Cost: £40
I also offer block discounts should you wish to book a set number of sessions. At the end of each block, we can review together and you can decide if you would like to continue counselling. We can then discuss the next step together.
- Zoom & phone counselling: £130 for 4 sessions, £180 for 6 sessions
- Email counselling: £150 for 4 sessions, £200 for 6 sessions
student and concessions fees
- Counselling students: £25

- Those on reduced or low income can contact me directly to discuss circumstances, but generally can expect to pay between £25-£30. Evidence of circumstances may be requested, but I am always open to discuss financial terms depending upon your need, whether or not you qualify for concessionary prices.
covid-19 frontline workers
I offer concessionary fees to any and all who were and continue to be directly affected by the working conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes, but may not be limited to: NHS workers, supermarket employees who had to work during the lockdown, and teachers.
“Lauren was such a good listener. She was so warm and friendly, I felt at ease right away.”
“I never had to remind her who was who in my family, Lauren remembered all the relationships. So I was able to just talk about how I was feeling about everyone without explaining everything every time.”
