COST & SERVICES

SCREEN ASSESSMENT

DURATION: 30 MINUTES
PRICE: £0.00

Perez Counselling and Psychotherapy Service needs to ascertain the impact your challenges are having on you in order to provide a service that meets you where you are. This is why partaking in our screening assessment is the first step. This is carried out over the phone and is different from the initial assessment process in that it is brief and time limited.

The screening assessment will place you in one of three categories of vulnerability, these being low, medium and high. This will  then determine how you are prioritised to be seen for your initial assessment.

INITIAL INDIVIDUAL ASSESSMENT

DURATION: 50 MINUTES
PRICE: £38.00

This is where we will meet again but face to face to discuss practical details. We will talk in depths about the principles Perez Counselling and Psychotherapy Service adheres to which is the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. This ensures you are kept safe and at the heart of the work. We will also know what each other’s expectations are in the working relationship and you will get a sense of the trusted therapeutic atmosphere available to you. There will be the opportunity to share any experiences you may have had of counselling in the past and hear about the approaches used within this service to aid working with you. Time will be enough for questions about the service, and to bring what you are hoping to work through.

At this point you can either decide to continue the work and agree a time and day which is suitable.

Alternatively

You can go away with information in hand to read over and think about what was discussed. Our expectation is that you will either call back to arrange your Individual Therapy sessions, or to decline services at this time.

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY SESSIONS

DURATION: 50 MINUTES
PRICE: £38.00

Individual Therapy sessions will provide a safe environment to work with and through painful issues we sometimes try to avoid. Finding a trusted space to address these concerns can break the isolation and begin a process of healing which in turn will bring you to a happier and more fulfilled  place in life.

COUPLES INITIAL ASSESSMENT

DURATION: 90 MINUTES
PRICE: £76.00 

This is where we will talk about the way in which we will work together as well as expectations and any past experiences of counselling. The session will then be split  so I can gain individual understanding of the issues and your history to assist the work. We will then come together and end with an insightful exercise.

At this point you can either make a decision to continue the work and if so, we can agree a time and day that is suitable.

Alternatively

You can go away with information and think about what was discussed and call back to arrange your next session or to decline at this time.

COUPLES THERAPY SESSION

DURATION: 60 MINUTES
PRICE: £76.00

Here you will be provided with a safe environment to deal with painful issues that couples sometimes try to avoid in their relationships.  Coming to couple’s therapy gives couples the space to open up and communicate better with each other. What you want to change will be heard and explored. Then how this can be done in creative and effective ways will be discussed.

Individual clients will be listened to without judgement, this may be in the company of your partner or on your own. Talking solo will allow for  greater understanding of you as an individual, which may aid the work.

Couples counselling is not about reaching a resolution, but about the start of a process. For this to have positive outcomes, both participants will need to be in agreement for the work to commence.

HOME VISITS

This is available for both individual and couples counselling within a 10 mile radius of Croydon. This is however subject to good reason i.e. the elderly and  house bound.

People living in Care Homes can also access this service. 

Home visits come at an additional cost of £12.00
