We can arrange a free telephone consultation or face to face meeting to discuss your needs in a confidential manner, after which we can both agree whether we think the service I offer will be beneficial to you. I may also be able to refer you to another, more suitable therapist should we both feel that is required.
We work on your issues and goals in a safe, confidential environment. We work collaboratively to ensure you get the results you want. The first session will involve contracting and discussing the reasons for coming and the goals you want to reach - these may be simple things like feeling calmer, more fulfilled or they could be big life changes. Whatever it is, the goal is decided by you.
The contract will include, but not be limited to such things as confidentiality, costs, cancellations and timings of sessions. We will discuss how the sessions will work and any changes to this will be discussed with you as required.
Although this is a collaborative process, the sessions are led by you and what you want to discuss in session. I want you to feel at all times in charge of your own process.
The timing of sessions can be governed by the issues we are working on. Some areas command regular weekly sessions and others may require bi-weekly or monthly meetings. Sometimes we will start with weekly and move to bi-weekly and further out as a client feels more able. This is discussed with you in session.
I do work with short term clients but I do highly endorse starting at a minimum of 6 sessions otherwise the work may not be deep enough to enable real, lasting change.
I try to be flexible in accommodating my clients in regards to sessions and offer morning appointments from 8am and evening appointments.
Fees are payable by cash at the session or bank transfer prior to session
24 hours notice needs to be given to cancel a session to avoid a full cancellation fee.
I also offer limited concessional rates - please contact me for details
If you feel that committing to a package would better serve you, please contact me to tailor make a package.
My clients are well informed about their commitment to the process. If you feel that the service is no longer helpful or have reached a point where you are happy to leave it, that is entirely your decision as the whole process is driven by you.
