Our Therapeutic Partnership

During the process of therapy, we will foster a therapeutic partnership to achieve the jointly agreed goals. This means that we will both be active participants in the process - working on the same team for the same goals. This often involves openness and an environment of trust and complete acceptance and non-judgement. I provide a safe environment for clients to work through their issues/concerns.

Therapist Agreement:

I will:

Ensure that the care of my client(s) remains my primary concern;

Ensure that a professional therapist-client relationship is adhered to always;

Act in the best interests of my client(s) always;

Act only within the limits of my expertise (knowledge, skills, experience, and training);

Ensure that where a client’s requirements are beyond my current expertise, I will offer referral options to another therapist or healthcare professional;

Maintain appropriate and effective communication with my client(s), other members and professionals;

Carry out my duties in a professional and ethical way;

Behave with integrity and honesty always;

Explain fully to clients in advance of any treatment: My fees, precise terms of payment and any charges which might be levied for non-attendance or cancelled appointments (as set out in my cancellation policy – see below).

Payment Procedure

Full payment is required in advance of your session to secure your booking. Bank details will be provided.

 Cancellation Policy

Your appointment is very important to me. I understand that sometimes appointments need changing. However, due to the costs of running my practice, I respectfully ask you to observe my cancellation policy and consider this before embarking on treatment.

If you have a confirmed scheduled booking for a therapy session that you wish to cancel you must do so at least 24 hrs in advance of the session, otherwise 50% of the booking fee will be charged.  Appointments booked less than 24 hours in advance cannot be cancelled; to do so will incur the full charge.

Please understand that when you forget to cancel your appointment without giving enough notice, I miss the opportunity to fill that appointment time. I hope you understand that these policies are in place to protect my practice. I have no desire to use them.  THANK YOU, and I appreciate your understanding in this matter.
