Session duration varies from person to person. The length of the treatment will very much depend on the clients ‘circumstances. As I work alongside the school holidays, I discuss with the client before a natural break if they feel ready to start working towards an ending.
It is important for the client to experience a healthy ending, rather than stop abruptly. A positive ending gives the opportunity for the client to work towards and process any feelings associated with endings.
Each session is 50 minutes. Please note if you are late, I cannot give you extra time as I usually operate on an hourly schedule. Please also make sure that if you are returning to pick someone up from therapy that this is done on time.
Initial consultation appointments are for 1 hour 20 minutes with a fee of £120. Ongoing therapy sessions are arranged at the same time and day each week and last 50 minutes with a fee of £90. I offer some concessionary spaces where appropriate.
You can pay for sessions with cash, or if you prefer to pay by transfer, then I will send you an invoice on the same day as your session, please note payment is expected immediately.
Yes, I work on zoom with people over 12 years old.
It may be possible to change the times of sessions during school hours, however after school slots are almost impossible to change, as I cannot offer another day or time due to the popularity of these times.
This is because the time is allocated for your session and cannot be filled with short notice. The cancellation policy is 48 hours in advance and is also highlighted on the consent form.
I am not affiliated to any private health insurers, so payment needs to be provided privately.
In general one of the most important rights the person seeking therapy has involves confidentiality, even if it is a young child. Information revealed by a client during the sessions will be kept strictly confidential and will not be revealed to any other person, with the following exceptions: In order to maintain professionalism, therapists are required to be supervised by another therapist during these interactions, client anonymity is paramount.
Confidentiality has some legal limits as well. There are situations where the therapist can be required to reveal information obtained during therapy to another person without the person, parent or child’s permission. These situations involve harm to self, harm to others and any safeguarding concerns. Whenever possible the person will be informed before these concerns are shared.
Please note that it is possible that we may know the same people, but I would never inform them that we are working together, nor do I accept any social media requests, even after the therapy has ended.
