Sessions are weekly and last for an hour.
I charge £50 per session.
Fees are to be paid weekly in cash, card or via direct banking
I offer both short and long term counselling/psychotherapy. The number of sessions depends on the needs of the individual. I would recommend we agree an initial number of sessions and then we can review this over time.
It is important that you feel able to work with me, the purpose of the first session is for us to meet one another, and explore your needs. You are under no obligation to continue.
If you give me notice of cancellation of at least 48 hrs, there is no charge. Regrettably missed session without notice are chargeable.
Our sessions will take place in my therapy room at my practice in The Coach House, next to Carden House Medical Practice, (directly across Carden Place from Victoria Street).
Parking is available on site.
I work within BACP guidelines which means that everything we discuss is completely confidential. However, if I have serious concerns about your safety, or the safety of others, then in certain limited circumstances, I may be obliged to share this with the relevant authorities. If this were to become an issue, where appropriate, it would be in a collaboration with you.
In line with BACP guidelines, I am in regular supervision with a qualified, experienced supervising therapist. I may share anonymised clinical material with them.
I will need to take some personal details about you such as your contact details and date of birth. It is considered good practice (by BACP) to keep very brief notes on our sessions which I will keep securely and destroy after 6 years in line with The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Under GDPR you have the right to request access to these records.
