To prospective clients
My working hours are Monday to Friday, day and evening.
Please arrive at the appointed time as I do not have a waiting area.
Sessions last for 50 minutes, except where a double session is negotiated if required.
I offer short term counselling and long term open ended psychotherapy with individuals and couples.
I prefer to work with a fixed day and time, although understand that this is not always possible and in such cases am able to negotiate appointments as we go along.
In my experience it is best to work minimally with one session per week, but in certain circumstances will consider working on a fortnightly basis or as and when required.
Client confidentiality is crucial and I should note that I may discuss issues with my clinical supervisor, and that I keep notes of our work.
When you are ready to stop therapy it is helpful that you give as much notice as possible, so that our work together can be brought to an end. I would recommend that at least 2 months notice is desirable for long term therapy of over 1 year.
I ask for 48 hours cancellation notice, or otherwise charge for missed sessions.
£55 per session standard rate, although concessionary rates may be offered following discussion. Fees are payable in cash or through bank transfer, either after each session or monthly. If monthly payments are preferred I will bill you at the end of each month, usually via email.
