Terms of Arrangement
As your Psychotherapist, Counsellor or Psychotherapeutic Coach, I am committed to you and will give you the time and space to use my expertise, skills and attention to support you in your progress.
Appointment Times and Costs:
Therapy sessions are usually the same time every week and they last an hour. I keep this regular slot for you until you no longer want it. Sometimes a set amount of sessions are agreed from the start but more often therapy is open ended. Sessions cost £40 per session.
Within any session you may wish to disclose a particular issue, thought, feeling, situation, incident or dream or use the time to be quiet and reflect. Sessions are not structured in a particular way but are facilitated so that you are encouraged to use the time to bring forward for exploration whatever feels priority at any given time.
How Long will Therapy Take?
The beginning of feeling better usually starts right from the first meeting and continues until you are feeling level, balanced and you consider your mental health and well-being as good. There is no telling how much time a person will need to get to this place or how long a person will want to stay in therapy thereafter doing further work. It can depend on the person, the issues and a few other factors.
Often current issues are worked through over a few weeks or months and some people choose to do more deeper work on themselves after that. When you feel ready to end our sessions, it is recommended this is mentioned one or two sessions beforehand so that we can use the opportunity to explore feelings around this and summarise how therapy has changed or supported you and identify any work that might be outstanding. The aim of this is so that you leave with full awareness of where you are at and with a positive feeling of closure.
Changes, Cancellations or missed appointments
If you need to alter your appointment time one week, then let me know more than 24 hours before your appointment time and I will do my best to re-arrange your appointment for the same week. If you cancel an appointment without 24 hours notice (or forget to turn up) then payment for the session is still due. (If you have already paid in advance for the month, then as long as notice of the cancellation is given 24hrs or more before the appointment, then you remain in credit for that session. In all of the above circumstances, I will also do my best to re-arrange another session within the same week).
I am a member of The Counselling Society and subscribe to their code of ethics which can be read in full on their website.
