How Fees Work.

Affordable Prices

Competitively priced private counselling fees, from a highly qualified, experienced & effective local counsellor, Dean Richardson MNCS(Accredited Registrant)

Pay for the Service you Use

No global fee – just pay the fee for the service that you use.

Sliding Scale

Trouble affording private counselling? My approach can invite you to pay what you can responsibly afford for private counselling.

Prices for Counselling Services.

Fees are payable weekly (by card, bank transfer, PayPal – cash not accepted during the current difficulties). 

The counselling service that you contract with me has an associated fee (i.e. you choose one service –  I cannot support someone entering couple counselling and individual counselling with me at the same time, for example). You pay only for the type of therapy that you’re engaging.

  • Due to the ongoing situation, face-to-face counselling has been suspended, but Video Counselling via Zoom / Skype ( continues with no restrictions.
  • My couple counselling fees assumes that both you and your partner are in full-time employment (e.g. sharing the costs).
  • If your circumstances require, I may be able to negotiate a lower fee based upon what you both can responsibly afford for weekly sessions. This would involve an open discussion about your income, expenditure and savings (e.g. if you were both staying over in London each weekend to go clubbing and not willing to give this up temporarily during the time of our work, this would not be a fair argument for reducing my fees). Please bring this up with you contact me to avoid disappointment.
  • Fees are per 50-minute session by default (plus 90 minute sessions can be arranged, as can meeting more than once a week).


Over 21 years worth of clients ~ many things have been said about Dean’s effective approach to counselling with individuals and couples, but these were highlights…

I discovered that we were in a open relationship… I hadn’t known!

We came into counselling to talk about what our relationship needed, and what we couldn’t give to each other.

We though we wanted to separate (and we didn’t want to). We learned what we really wanted was to learn how to do some things separately, and we stayed together.

I needed to talk with my partner about Lesbian Bed Death. I’d been with an individual counsellor she kind-of put me off.

Dean had no problems talking with me about sexuality, sex and intimacy, and what was happening (or wasn’t happening!) in my relationship.

When my husband came out as gay, we wanted to stay together but didn’t know how (wife).

We had fallen out of love. We wanted to get back the relationship we used to have.

As couple counselling progressed we gave up the idea of recapturing the past (that was lost). Instead we created a newer relationship together.

Our local GU clinic recommended we seek counselling because of one sus being unfaithful.
