How long will I need to come
There is no set answer and this depends on what you want. This would be determined via our assessment session and from this place we would normally contract for a given period of time (typically six weeks) and review periodically to ensure that the direction of work is meeting your needs.
Our first session is a "look and see" session where we explore what it is that you are seeking. To meet one another and see if your needs and my skills match. It may be that other or additional support may be needed or that the time is not right for you.
Frequency and Cost
Sessions are normally weekly, at a regular time for 50 minutes.
The cost for a session, is £45.00 (Southsea). There are limited low cost spaces available.
Missed and cancelled sessions (without 48hrs notice), unless re-scheduled (and subject to my availability), are payable in full. There is no fee for scheduled holidays and planned gaps.
A minimum of four sessions is required to terminate for all but very brief, short term work (six to twelve weeks), and considerably longer for long term work (i.e., more than one year).
All sessions are confidential and records are kept securely. Sessions are conducted according to the Codes of Ethics and Practice of the BACP & UKCP
It is in the interest of the client not to take any substances, which will alter mental functioning when attending sessions, apart from prescribed medication. Therefore, clients are required to undertake, not to attend sessions under the influence of alcohol or drugs other than prescribed by a GP.
