I am committed to provide the best possible service to you in supporting your psychological and emotional wellbeing. As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I abide by their Ethical Framework and Code of Practice. I therefore practice according to their standards of conduct. You can find more details about this on .
Time of your sessions:
Sessions will be held once a week and each of them will last 50 minutes. The time and the day will be agreed upon first session and will remain the same throughout the length of your therapy. If you are late for your appointment the session will still end at the agreed time.
Online Therapy: sessions will be via webcam using an agreed platform which will be secure and encrypted.
This is a confidential service. The content of your sessions will not be communicated with a third party except for the purpose of supervision of my work. In this instance, your identity won't be revealed, and the presenting issues will be discussed in a general context, to help ensure I am working ethically and safely. However, in cases where there may be significant risk of harm to an individual or those around them I have an ethical and moral responsibility to breach confidentiality to ensure safety. You will be informed of this disclosure as soon as possible depending on the urgency and/or gravity of it.
All your personal information, together with factual notes of our sessions, will be stored securely for the duration of our work together and will be destroyed straight after our last appointment.
Payment for your sessions:
Face-to-face Therapy: Payment needs to be made weekly at each session or in advance by cash or credit transfer.
Online Therapy: the cost of the session has to be covered a minimum of 24 hours prior to the appointment time.
Missed Appointments and Cancellations:
If you are unable to keep your appointment you must inform me by phone or email at the latest 24 hours in advance. Failure to do so will result in the session being charged for at the usual rate. Non-attendance and failure to contact over 2 weeks will result in the counselling contract ending. I will always give as much advance notice as possible for any breaks in therapy I may need to take.
