Services

I offer in-person counselling sessions from therapy rooms in Central and West Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne.

If you are interested in beginning face-to-face therapy with me, you are welcome to email me to book a free 15-min introductory phone call or video meeting. Email info@elsieowen.com

Private Practice in Jesmond

I provide online counselling sessions to your home, office, or even your car - if you're safely parked! I use a secure online meeting platform and the only things you will need are access to the internet (good enough to stream Netflix or watch YouTube),  a device that has a camera (computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone) and a safe, quiet and private space to speak from. I also recommend the use of earphones to help with sound quality and to create a feeling of privacy. 

Online therapy is increasing in popularity and research has shown that it is as effective as in-person therapy. Some of the benefits are: 

  • You can have therapy whenever and wherever you are

  • There are less visual distractions which can help with focus and concentration 

  • You may find you are more comfortable speaking online and that it is easier to talk 

  • Therapy can work around your life and you are more likely to avoid cancellation fees 

  • I can offer continued support, even if either of us is travelling

  • I can be more flexible with finding a time to meet than I can for my practice in-person

If you'd like to explore working together online, send me an email to arrange a free 15min introductory session to see how you find meeting online. Email info@elsieowen.com

Online Counselling

Fees

  • 15-minute introductory phone call / online video meeting: FREE

  • 50-minute face-to-face/online initial consultation session: £25

  • 50-minute weekly therapy session face-to-face/online: £50

Payment is made in advance of the session using cash or bank transfer. Online payment is possible on request. Once payment is received, an automated confirmation will be sent to your email address. 

My current fees are:

I operate a one week rescheduling and cancellation policy, which means that I will not charge any fee if you give notice of one week or more. If you need to reschedule, I will try to offer a suitable time during the same week, however if I am unable to, I ask for the full fee to be paid. 


If you cancel with less than one week’s notice, I charge the full fee. Please note that this includes cancellations due to weather. In the event that one of us is not able to attend the session in-person due to adverse weather, we will move the session to an online video meeting or phone call. 


In the instance that you cancel with less than one week’s notice and I am able to fill the appointment slot by offering it to someone else, I will refund the fee to you.  

 

Illness 


If you are unwell on the day of a session or have been unwell in the days leading up to a session, please let me know. If you are able to speak, we will move the session to an online video meeting or phone call, otherwise the full fee is chargeable. 

 


The session fee is frequently reviewed and may change. Notice of a change to the cost of your sessions will be given with a minimum of 4 weeks’ notice. I remain open to conversations about the affordability of sessions.
