Fees

Attitudes to the fee for therapy appear to vary considerably- from the defiantly pro-fee stance pointing to the counsellor’s training and other investment into his or her vocation, to a considerable unease about the exchange of money for carrying attention. This may stem from the common belief that caring should ideally be given freely by one human being to another.

Freud and other psychoanalytic writers see the “sacrificial” fee as an important part of the therapeutic process. The fee, they argue, increases commitment, provides a motivation to end therapy, and is a way of grounding the relationship in reality.
