Schedule of fees for counselling services

Dr Jim Byrne’s Face to face Counselling and Psychotherapy Service, in Hebden Bridge

(Sliding Scale)


For new clients, commencing after 1st January 2018, I offer a revised scale of fees, for simplicity, and to take account of the continuing atmosphere of austerity.

If you are unemployed, or on a basic state pension, I can see you for a fee of £50.00 per 45 minute session.

If you are employed, or self-employed, and earning less than £25,000 per year, before tax, I can see you for a fee of £60.00.

If you earn more than £25,000 per year, before tax, but less than £50,000, then I can see you for a fee of £70.00 per session.

And if you earn £50,000 or more per year, before tax, then I can see you for a fee of £80.00.

Those fees all refer to daytime appointments, on Wednesday to Friday of each week.  If you want an evening or weekend appointment, the standard fee is £20 more than your weekday fee.

I now offer just four appointment slots per day – 10.00am, 11.00am; 2.00pm, and 3.00pm. This helps to ensure that I am in tip-top condition, physically and mentally, when I see you.

On alternate Saturdays I offer two appointment slots – at 11.00am and 2.00pm.

And one evening per week, I offer a late session – normally at 7.00 pm until 7.45 pm.

I therefore offer a total of 13 appointment slots during a normal working week; plus four Saturday slots per month.

Since nine or ten of my weekday slots are already routinely booked up, in advance, it is advisable to let me know immediately if you would like one of the remaining two or three slots.
