Current fees and terms

While therapy is a very human, interpersonal experience, we believe that it is important to clarify the potential costs with you so that you can feel that what you receive represents good value for your money.

You will naturally be interested in what therapy might cost, particularly if it involves more than just one or two sessions. However, our aim is to make therapy accessible to the widest possible range of people and to be as inclusive as possible. Even if you are covered by insurance, this may not cover all your costs and it is important for you to think about where you stand in this regard before beginning therapy.

Your initial face to face contact with a therapist will be for an initial consultation. This offers you an opportunity to assess whether you feel that the therapist will be able to meet your needs and vice versa. For this we charge a maximum one off fee of £120. This may take place over one extended or two shorter sessions. At this initial consultation you will have the opportunity of exploring future costs with the therapist.

After the initial consultation, each therapist is responsible for her or his own range of fees. These will vary taking into account issues such as likely overall length of therapy and frequency of sessions. The range is from £40 to £100 per session. The therapist will also discuss with you financial issues relating to appointments made and not kept.

Arrangements for paying fees can also be discussed with the therapist. This might involve paying after each session or sending you a monthly invoice. At the present time Hampden House does not have facilities for accepting card payments.

We recognise that therapy can involve a considerable investment of time and finance and our aim is to ensure that what we offer at Hampden House is of good quality at a fair and realistic cost.
