Information for patients

Information for patients

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy sessions are regular, usually on the same day(s), at the same time(s) each week, for 50 minutes and for a fee agreed by both the psychotherapist and patient. It is common practice for psychoanalytic psychotherapists to charge their regular fee for all sessions regardless of whether the patient actually attends the session or not, with or without notice.


We aim to offer a professional service. If you have a concern and would like to speak to someone about this please email the APEL Chair in the first instance Chair@apel.org.uk.
