The sessions are confidential unless I believe you are at risk of harming yourself, or someone else.
You may pay in cash or by bank transfer before or at the session.
I will review my fees annually providing at least one month’s notice of any increases in price.
I operate a standard therapeutic contract which mean that missed sessions are to be paid for.
In the event of me having to cancel a session (example annual leave) there will be no charge.
I understand there may be times when contact between us is necessary outside of our booked session time. I do check my emails and phone messages regularly on week days - not on week ends or bank holidays. Please know I am not always able to respond straight away. In an emergency please always contact emergency services.
I will not make contact with you outside of our sessions unless I need to change a scheduled session.
Our relationship will remain a professional therapeutic relationship.
The boundaries of our relationship will be discussed during our first meeting and should be maintained by both parties.
As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I abide by their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
