If you’ve spent any time on our site, you would have seen countless mentions of “average session rates” as a key measure of private practice performance.

But what is it exactly?

As the name suggests, it is the average dollar value of the sessions conducted in your practice within a given period.


How do you calculate the average session rate?

The average session rate is easy to calculate, as long as you know the following figures:

  • Total revenue from sessions during a specific period
  • Total number of session in the same period
Total Revenue / Total Number of Sessions = Average Session Rate/Fee

(If you’d rather use a calculator, check out our Average Session Rate Calculator!)

Total revenue last month = $10,000

Total number of sessions last month = 50

$10,000 / 50 = $200

This means, on average, each session in your practice in the last month cost $200.
