At March 2024 I have increased my fees for the first time in 8 years. The increase is below the rate of inflation.

For individual therapy: The first session is two hours and £140-00. All subsequent sessions are one and a half hours and £105-00. The time in between is up to you, and most people choose three or four weeks.

For couples: Session lengths, and time between sessions, are the same as individuals. The first session is two hours and is £180. Subsequent sessions are  1.5 hours and £135.

    • An initial half-hour preliminary meeting is free of charge and there is no obligation. and Please contact me here to arrange one.
    • The time between sessions is up to you and is not meant to be weekly. Most people choose three or four weeks.
    • There is no commitment  to a fixed number of sessions.
    • Fees are payable before each session by bank transfer ie by phone banking. I don’t take credit cards.

Frequency of sessions and guesstimate of number of sessions

My assumption is that people come for a burst of sessions. On average that is five to ten sessions. Many couples fall pretty well in that range. Individuals rather more frequently come for longer than that.

Please forgive my necessary imprecision. Everyone of course wants an idea of what’s what. At the same time every therapist needs to be certain to not hold out any kind of promise, any kind of prediction, any kind of dream, or anything else of any kind that can’t in reality be assured.

There’s no commitment to a fixed number of sessions.

My first session is two hours, and the rest 1.5 hours, both for individual psychotherapy and couples therapy. One hour sessions run out much too soon.

It’s up to you the time interval between appointments. For both individual therapy and relationship therapy people mostly choose three weeks or four weeks apart, or occasionally at the beginning two weeks.

Subject to availablility of popular time slots, you do not have to keep to a fixed time slot for each visit.

What my clients say

You are really, really a very kind person. Thank you for your effort and advice in helping me!

I was never convinced counselling would work. But your approach and your ability to use different methods to suit individual needs has truly changed me on a deep level.

The very first session I had with him was so helpful and powerful that I recommended him to two other people straightaway.

Andrew works gently and safely and I felt held in a safe space throughout the session.

I have made some major breakthroughs in sessions with you.

I was blown away by your insightful and transformative approach.

A different approach from other therapists I have seen before, so that I have finally solved my problem.

More happened in the first session I had with you than in 4 or 5 sessions with a counsellor.

[Your hypnosis] was remarkably effective and entirely different and tailor-made for my individual needs and experiences. Thank you!!!

Although counselling was new territory for me, it was invaluable and worth every penny.

Had a massive effect on my relationship. Learned loads of really good stuff – surpassed my expectations.

Andrew is one of the best therapists I have ever worked with. If you want to make a breakthrough with an issue in your life or relationship, I highly recommend…

I have made some incredible progress and I am now in an intimate and happy relationship thanks to your help.
