Start Counselling with Rob Stuart!  Here’s how.

  1. Send me a message.  I aim to respond within 24 hours.  
  2. Fill out a psychotherapy questionnaire.  
  3. Schedule an appointment.

Prices and availability.

Appointments are offered between 08:00 and 19:00.  I prefer to work in the morning but have limited availability in the afternoon and evening.  

I usually charge £54 for a daytime session and £63 in the evening.

I am pleased to be able to offer reduced fees to people on a low household income (daytime only).  Message me for more information.  

Duration of sessions.

Sessions last the ‘therapeutic hour’ … 50 minutes to you and me.  

I never attempt to predict how many sessions will be required before a preliminary consultation.  There’s just no way of knowing.  Further, there is never any obligation for you to commit to a fixed number of sessions, ever. 

I want you to want to see me.  


I generally take three breaks per year.  I try to take two weeks in the winter, two weeks in the spring and four weeks in the summer.  I aim to provide at least two months notice of any upcoming break.   

Termination of counselling.  

Counselling should always be cancelled by mutual agreement.  There is a general expectation that you will arrive at your appointment on time every week. 

Missed sessions are chargeable but if there is a genuine reason why you cannot attend (i.e. life does go on), I will always try to offer an alternative.  


If you have a complaint about counselling, it is better to talk to me about it in the session.  In the unlikely event that I am unable to satisfy your concerns, you should contact the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.  

If you’d like to find out more, please send me a message.  I aim to respond within 24 hours.
