The first contact will be with the parent or parents of the child/adolescent. This will enable me to learn about your child and give parents an opportunity to share their concerns. The cost for this will be the same price as an individual session.
Therapy is most effective when a trusting relationship exists between the therapist and the child/adolescent. Privacy is especially important in securing and maintaining that trust. One goal of treatment is to promote a stronger and better relationship between children/adolescents and their parents. However, it is often necessary for children/adolescents to develop a “zone of privacy” whereby they feel free to discuss personal matters with greater freedom. This is particularly true for adolescents who are naturally developing a greater sense of independence and autonomy.
During – You are welcome to sit in your car or leave and return within 50 minutes while your child/adolescent is in a session.
After – It is beneficial to allow your child/adolescent to tell you about the session without feeling pressurised to do so.
As part of my professional accreditation and ethical good practice I have a duty to pass on any concerns regarding Child Protection and Safeguarding.
Fees: To be paid in advance or after each session. The cost for each session is £80.00.
I require 24 hours cancellation notice period or charges will still apply.
