Terms of Arrangement
Terms of Arrangement
As your Psychotherapist 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.
Ethics: I am a member of The Counselling Society and subscribe to their code of ethics which can be read in full their website.
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.
Appointments are usually weekly and we will agree to a regular time at the beginning. Any changes to the appointment time can be made with as much notice as reasonably possible either way. For those who are able to be flexible, do let me know, as some movements with appointments can be useful to help others fit in when they start therapy or their circumstances change. In return I will always try to be flexible where I can when you need to alter an arrangement appointment if needed.
Any cancellations are payable unless 24 hours or more notice is given, at which time we will try to re-schedule during the same week where possible. If you have paid in advance and you are unable to make your appointment, as long as 24hrs or more notice is given then your appointment is credited and carried over to the following week. If you cancel without 24hrs notice, the cost of the sessions is deducted as if you have attended.
Time in Therapy
At the start we may agree a fixed number of sessions or, more usually the number of sessions will be open ended. When you feel ready to end our sessions, it is recommended this is mentioned 2-3 sessions beforehand so that we can use the opportunity to explore feelings around leaving and summarise the work we have done and what 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.
My fee includes my supervision costs, insurance, training and membership of The Counselling Society.
Payments for your first appointments are usually made in cash. If we are planning to continue with regular therapy, we plan this on a monthly basis.
Most people pay for the month's sessions towards the end of the month for the forthcoming month. EG. If your regular appointment is on a Thursday and there are 4x Thursdays in February, then you would send over the cost of 4 sessions via bank transfer to arrive before the last day in January. (Usually I will message you around a week before the last day of the month to remind you to send your payment over and confirm dates)
(Appointments will still ned paying for if you cancel without 24hrs notice, but I will endeavor to rearrange the appointment for the same week where I can, so that you still get your time).
