TERMS AND CONDITIONS

LATENESS AND CANCELLATION

If I am late for a session, I will make up the time so long as this is possible for you or reimburse you accordingly. If you are late, please expect the session to finish at the appointed time. If I cancel a session, you will not be expected to pay for it and, if possible, I will offer you another.

 

If you cancel a session with less than 48 hours notice you will still be expected to pay for the session, although whenever possible I will try to offer an alternative time that suits us both.

 

I will try to give good notice of forthcoming holidays and breaks and I hope you will give me as much notice as you can.

CONFIDENTIAL

Nature only heals, it never reveals. 

What is shared in the session will be treated as confidential. It will not be discussed outside the sessions except in the context of professional supervision and professional training. Any such references will always be anonymous and you could not be identified through them.

While confidentiality is essential, it is not absolute, and there are exceptions.  In very few extreme circumstances, it might be necessary for me to pass on information. This would only be if there were a substantial possibility of serious harm to yourself or others or if I were legally impelled to impart information. If I had concerns in this area, I would talk to you as fully as possible before deciding to take any action.

COUNSELLING SESSIONS

A session is defined as a meeting which has been agreed verbally or in writing, whether or not it is attended. The place and format of meeting, appointment time and length of session are mutually decided. A single therapy session usually lasts for 50 minutes/an hour according to your needs and circumstances.
