    Evening all!
    It's been a while, I hope you are well.
    I have a quick question - I was just wondering what the average price of your CD bars are.? I am currently being charged £2.10 per bar ( apparently CD has put the cost up)
    £2 each per soup or shake and an additional cost for consultation. Eash session is now costing just over £50!!
    I am literally losing pounds!!! :) I love my CDC but I think that I may have to change soon.
    Please let me know your thoughts

    CDC's are self employed, and the cost per bar/shake is set by them with a recommended retail price by CD. I do agree it seems a bit excessive, maybe its worth having a look for another counsellor. However, if you get the support that you need then maybe its worth the extra|??

    I understand what you're saying. I also understand everyone needs a payrise each year. But it is hard to manage, I don't think I'm going to be able to keep it up much longer, things cost too much money in life dammit! Lol

    I went to my CDC first time tonight since price rises:

    Bars £1.90
    Shakes £1.65
    Soups £1.65
    Tetra £1.85
    Flavours £6.40
    Mix-a-mousse £3.00

    My friend was paying £1.55 for EVERYTHING. Jealous! Not sure what the pay-rise is like for her yet though.

    My CDC charges the same for shakes, bars, soups and tetras ... £1.55 each. I didn't even realise they'd gone up to £1.65 as the weekly cost hasn't changed since I started last year: I pay £32.55 for 21 packs. I've obviously found a gem of a CDC.

    I'm doing it the cambrige way!
    I pay 1.65 for my shakes and soups
    I pay 7.00 for my flavourings
    I don't have bars or tetras so not sure...

    we have to accept that the differences are part of Cambridge... just like the differences we get charged in different shops etc....

    I still save money on my weekly shopping bill and all the extras I would have been consuming!

    Serendipity maybe you can speak to your counselor and let her know that the price is a little to high and you are thinking about going to another counselor, maybe she can work something out for you.
