Confidentiality: All information shared with the therapist is confidential unless the client presents a danger to themselves or others or there is a mandated reporting of abuse of children or elders.
First Session: The first session is an opportunity for both the client and the therapist to get to know each other. During this session, we will ask questions to gather information and expectations of counselling. This information will be used to create a plan to help you overcome your worries as quickly as possible.
Commitment to Therapy: For a better therapeutic experience and outcome, it is recommended that clients commit to meeting with the therapist once a week. Chris Stavri will give at least one week’s notice for any planned break, and the client must give at least one week’s notice for any planned break.
Each individual one-to-one counselling session costs £120 for 50 minutes.
For a block of six individual sessions, the fee is £600 (You Pay for five sessions and get one session added on for free). These six sessions must be used up within eight weeks; otherwise, they are considered lost.
For couples counselling, the fee for one session is £190 for one hour and 10 minutes.
For a block of six couples counselling sessions, the fee is £950 (You pay for five sessions and get one session added on for free). These six sessions must be used up within eight weeks; otherwise, they are lost.
Payment: Payment should be made at least seven days in advance by bank transfer or PayPal and is non-refundable.
Termination of Counselling: When the client or couple wishes to terminate counselling, it is recommended to arrange a final session to work through the ending of the counselling experience. Chris Stavri has the right to terminate counselling at any time, and if possible, a reason will be given.
Voluntary Participation: The client is not obliged to continue with therapy after each session.
Refund Policy: In the case of block sessions, the fee is, without exception, non-refundable. Once you have made the payment, kindly note that the fee is non-refundable without any exceptions. This policy ensures that your commitment secures the slot exclusively for you, allowing us to focus on your counselling needs.
Zoom Counselling Sessions: All individual or couples counselling sessions are conducted online via the Zoom platform. Please enter the Zoom counselling space at least 10 minutes before the session starts. If the client enters the counselling session late, the time cannot be added on. In the case of an emergency where the client or therapist cannot attend, the session will be added on.
Termination by Therapist: The therapist has the right to terminate the counselling agreement if he feels therapy with the client or couple is unsuitable. The counsellor will refund any sessions left over on the block agreement.
