Costs:

The first half hour visit is free. During this time, we can talk about your individual needs, and decide if my services are suitable for you. I will provide an agreement that outlines what we have discussed.

Once an agreement has been reached, the following costs will apply:

  • £16 per hour (inclusive of local outings under 2 miles)
  • Following this an additional £0.45p per mile is chargeable for any outing

I would request that 48 hours’ notice is given to cancel a visit otherwise 50% will be payable at the next visit. The hourly fee will be reviewed on an annual basis.

Note: For new customers, if 4 sessions are booked and paid for in advance within a 6 week period, you will receive a 10% discount on the overall price during the first 3 months of our agreement commencing.
