Terms & Conditions

Commitment

Therapy and treatments depend on a commitment from both parties. We would expect a minimum commitment of eight weeks which is agreed by way of a contract as part of an assessment session.

Sessions

A session is 50 minutes in length and will start at the time agreed. If for any reason a session starts after the agreed start time then the session will still end at the same time as it would have, had the session started at the correct time, the full fee will still be payable if the session is shorter in length.
Each session fee is payable at the beginning of each session.

Conduct

The therapist may end any session early if you are abusive, violent or the therapist believes that you under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In the event the session is so terminated the full fee remains due.

Cancelling a session

If for any reason you have to miss a session you need to give 72 hours’ 3 working days’ notice otherwise the full fee remains payable.

Confidentiality

You agree that the therapist may keep short written notes on sessions which will be stored securely but not identified by name.
All sessions are completely confidential with the following exceptions.

If the therapist considers you to be at risk of harming yourself or others, then the therapist reserve the right to breach confidentiality in order to prevent harm. This would be in extreme circumstances, and the therapist would always try to discuss such action with you in advance.
If you disclose that you have caused serious harm to others in the past the therapist can breach confidentiality and contact the relevant authority.

If ordered by a court of law or otherwise under the Laws of England and Wales.
The therapist will take supervision in accordance with professional requirements and disclosures will be made to the supervisor. The supervisor will have agreed to be subject to the rules for confidentiality as set out from time to time by the professional body that they are registered with.
