fees can be found on the home page of this website. Should
we agree to continue with therapy after your first appointment, I would expect
payment for each sessions to be done on the day of our sessions or before the
end of the week. Please note I do not have payment card facilities. Fees may be up for review according to economic situations.
Sessions and duration
will be asked to commit to regular sessions at the same time each week. I have
in the past been able to accommodate clients who work different shifts and will
work with you to find suitable times depending on my client’s practice load and
availability. Individual sessions are 50 minutes and relationship (with a partner) sessions are 75 minutes. Occasionally and upon prior request sessions can be extended. I work with an open ended contract that is we will not necessarily agree to a number of sessions, but we will agree to end our therapy work with two sessions of notice to allow us to review the work done and give closure to all issues discussed.
you cancel a session with less than 2 full working days notice, you will agree
to pay the full fee for the missed session. Occasionally I may be able to
accommodate you with a different time, or have your session via Skype. But
sometimes alternative arrangements may not be reached.
follow the code of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and
Psychotherapy (www.bacp.co.uk). All
material discussed in our sessions remains confidential and will not be
disclosed to any person/organisation without your consent. Exceptions
to this rule would be if I am required to disclose information by a court of
law, or in order to protect you or another person from significant harm. As with all registered psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK I attend regular supervision. This
is a requirement from my accrediting bodies. Any material discussed in
supervision remains confidential and my supervisors are bound to the same
ethics of confidentiality. Information
held about you is covered by the Data Protection Act 1998,
and will not be disclosed to third parties.
Please note that I am not registered with all health insurance providers and registration with such companies may take a few days. Health insurance will only cover a limited number of sessions (sometime as little as 6 sessions depending on the company), should you decide to continue therapy after the contracted sessions with the insurer, you will need to cover the costs personally.
