Trisha Higgs Counselling & Psychotherapy For couples and individuals in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge & Tunbridge Wells

How much does a session cost?

£60 for Individual Therapy
£65 for Couple Therapy
£65 for Individual Psychosexual Therapy
£70 for Couples Psychosexual Therapy

Per 50 minute session. I accept cash, cheque or bank transfer payable on the day of your session. I do ask that you pay by cash for your first session.


How long does a session last?

Each session lasts fifty minutes, but your initial assessment session will last one hour.


Is it important to meet regularly?

We will meet at the same time and day each week, but if from time to time you cannot make that appointment, I will try to find another time for you that week.


How often do we meet?

Therapy sessions are usually weekly, but can be fortnightly for Psychosexual Therapy to give you time to carry out the exercises I give you.


How long might the therapy last?

I offer both short-term and long-term therapy. Some difficulties may not need as much time to resolve. You may want to have a series of six sessions, and then a review. Other reasons for coming to therapy, such as an affair, may be more complex, and require more sessions together.

I work with your needs and expectations, and always review the process as we go along. Generally speaking, therapy does require time and commitment. Issues that bring you to therapy are often complex and long-standing, and need time to think about and work through.


What about confidentiality?

I adhere to the new data protection regulations that are coming into force in May 2018. I have a privacy notice on my website, and your details will be kept safe and secure.


My partner does not want to come with me. Can I come on my own, and will this help?

Yes of course. It can be useful to have some couple therapy sessions alone. This gives you a chance to reflect on your relationship.


Are you easy to reach by car or public transport?

I am within easy reach of the M25 and A21, and on a main road with a good bus service. You can park on my drive or just outside.


What hours do you work and can I see you on a Saturday?

Please contact me to enquire about availability. I offer 8am and evening appointments on certain days of the week, as well as daytime appointments. I also offer Saturday morning appointments.



What happens if I arrive early. Do you have a waiting room?

As I don't have a waiting room, it is best if you arrive just on time. Also, I may be with a client and would be unable to let you in.


Do you have a cancellation policy?

I will charge you for a missed session, if you either do not attend without letting me know, or cancel with less than one week’s notice. Giving me a week’s notice is important, because it gives me enough time to offer your space to someone else that week.

Where we have contracted to meet fortnightly, as in Psychosexual Therapy, I will always charge for a missed session, as cancelling means the gaps between meetings are too long.
