The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.

FAQs

It may be helpful to you to have some common questions answered before you begin:


Confidentiality:

I will only share the contents of your sessions with my clinical supervisor (a professional requirement) and in very specific circumstances where I feel you might be at serious risk of harming yourself or others, or if I am required by a court of law to give evidence in proceedings. Any notes taken will not be identifiable by name and will adhere to the same confidentiality. I will always let you know of any disclosure before making it, and would seek your permission where possible.

Cost:

Individual sessions:

£60

Couple sessions:

£70

 

Payment:

Payment is by cash at the beginning of each session.

Length of session:

Sessions last 50 minutes.

The first session:

The first session will be for you to let me know what has brought you to therapy. At the end of the session I will talk you through the terms of my therapy agreement.  I will normally take notes in the first but not in subsequent sessions. At the end of the first session you can either arrange to meet with me again or you may wish to take some time to think about it.

How often will we meet:

The outcome of therapy is dependent on regularity, interest and commitment so we will ordinarily meet at the same time once a week. Once the relationship has been established and dependent on need it may be possible to meet more or less frequently.

Notes:

I will make brief notes after each session. These will not be identified by name and will be stored securely.
