Is the service confidential?
Yes, the content of the sessions is wholly confidential in accordance with BACP ethical guidelines. However, if II believe you are a serious harm to yourself or others, particularly a child, I may need to disclose this to others. However I would attempt to talk this through with you beforehand.
How many sessions will I need?
As each person is unique and has different issues it will vary from person to person. I recommend that we work together for 6 sessions initially, preferably on a weekly basis as this helps to build a good relationship in which to understand your concerns. This will be reviewed to see if this meets your needs currently or if further work is required for your future needs. I can also work in an open ended or long term way if this suits you better.
How much do you charge?
My charges are £45-£50 per 50 minute session. Payment may be made at the end of each session by cheque or cash or if you prefer you could pay for a block of sessions in advance. If you decide to continue after the 1st session I ask that you pay for the next session in advance.
Do you offer weekend and evening appointments?
I generally offer day and early evening appointments. My hours are 9am-6pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Wednesdays). Please contact me to discuss your requirements and for me to explain my terms and conditions.
