Confidentiality

The sessions are confidential unless I think you are at risk of harming yourself, or someone else.

Sessions

Sessions last for 50 minutes.

Fees

Sessions start from £70.00. Early morning, evening and weekend sessions are charged at a higher rate - please enquire for details.

Payment

You can pay in cash or by BACS transfer before, at, or after the session.

If for any reason you have fees for 2 sessions outstanding, I will ask that you pay the outstanding amount before booking any further appointments. This will include fees for any missed sessions.

I will review my fees annually providing at least one month’s notice of any increases in price.

Should you experience any difficulties with making payment (s), please discuss this with me as soon as possible.

 

Cancelations and Missed Sessions

Cancelations and missed sessions must be paid for -  an appointment is considered confirmed once agreed verbally or by email or text. If a cancellation on your side becomes necessary, these incur a charge of your regular session fee.

In the event of my having to cancel a session, I will offer an alternative time and give you as much notice as possible

 

There is no charge where I have to cancel a session.

Boundaries

I understand there may be times when contact between us is necessary outside of our booked session time. I do check my emails and phone messages regularly but must advice that I am not always able to respond straight away.

·  I shall not make contact with you outside of our sessions unless I need to change a scheduled session

·    Our relationship will remain a professional therapeutic relationship

·  The boundaries of our relationship will be discussed during our first meeting and should be maintained by both parties.
