Session Information

 

If you want to know what it's like working with me, here's some information you may find useful.

 

Sessions

During your first session I will clarify and understand what you are currently experiencing and what you want to achieve from therapy. I will take a full assessment of your past and current situation, your health and lifestyle, and the changes that you want to make. You’ll have every opportunity to ask any questions, and we’ll create a treatment plan and agree a number of sessions to achieve your desired outcome.

 

The number of sessions you will need varies and this is dependent on your needs, situation and the therapy used. I will give you an estimated number of sessions, but I usually recommend that 6 sessions will allow you to see how well the therapy is working for you and experience some change.

 

I offer full 60 minute sessions rather than the traditional ‘therapy hour’ of fifty minutes. Everyone processes at different rates, and after a few sessions you will find that you’ll settle to your preferred session length – usually between 1 and 1 ½ hours.

 

Bespoke therapy sessions

For fast results, the uniqueness of my therapy sessions are that I can develop a bespoke plan of therapy for you.  You may require flexible weekly, fourtnightly or instense course of treatments than that of weekly sessions.

Half day and full day sessions can be made available in your plan.  The bespoke therapy sessions are individually tailored and may include traditional medical advise, complementary therapies such as nutrition, massage, accupunture, financial and fitness advice.

 

If you want to work on a specific problem, breakthrough sessions are available. These vary from 3 - 5 hours in length and can be held in-house or at my practice locations.

 

Emergency and one-off sessions are also available, these are charged at a higher rate.

 

Organisation and employer

If you are an organisation and need a therapist in an emergency or to see a member of your staff or offer group therapy support in confidence, please email me. 

I am also available to attend any health and wellness day you may hold in your company and you would like me to attend, I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Insurance

I am a Registered Health Provider’ and so your fees may be paid for by your health insurer. Please contact your insurers to find out what is covered.

 

GP consent

You will be required to indicate whether you do or do not consent to any communications with your GP or other medical professionals.

For my insurance purposes you GP information is required.  I will not make any contact with your GP without your full written consent.

 

Referral

I offer therapy to individuals, couples and children. You can self-refer or be referred by a medical professional, employer, friend or family member. Full and informed consent is required by all adults having therapy with me and direct contact with the client must be made to arrange the appointments.

 

Confidentiality

Your confidentiality is strictly upheld. Your consent will be sought where the law requires it to be broken, or in the event of self-harm, harm to another or to a child is involved. All sessions are held in a safe and non-judgemental environment.

 

How soon will you see me?

In most instances you’ll be seen within a week of your initial contact. In an emergency, you can be seen within 48 hours depending on availability. On some occasions, I may operate a waiting list due to high demand. If this is longer than 2 weeks I will let you know.

 

How do I talk to you?

Therapy is normally face-to-face.  In the event of travel or distance may be a challenge or that you are overseas I am able to offer Skype, FaceTime and Phone sessions. 

 

Cancellation

48 hours’ week day notice is required for cancellation or to reschedule your appointment. Otherwise the full fee will be charged.

 

Payments

Unless previously agreed or your fees are paid for by your employer or health insurer, payment is to be made at the end of each session.

 

For Skype, Facetime and phone consultations, payment must be received in advance. You can pay by cash, cheque, or bank transfer/BACS.

 

If I am unable to support you, I can refer you on to trusting organisations for assistance.
