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

Frees start from £70. Early morning, (8-9am) and evening sessions (6-7pm), are charged at a higher rate - please enquire for details.

Payment

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

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

I operate a standard therapeutic contract which mean that missed session are to be paid for. I will happy try to reschedule sessions you may not be able to make. Please see below.

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

 

Cancelled and Missed Sessions

Cancellations or missed sessions must be paid for. 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 of course 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.
