Terms and conditions

Confidentiality
Confidentiality is the cornerstone of all therapeutic work. All counselling and psychotherapy is strictly confidential in line with the rules laid down by the professional body BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)This will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.

Appointments
Counselling and psychotherapy appointments are normally for an hour.  You are asked to be punctual for your own privacy as well as that of other clients who may be seen either side of you.  You are also asked not to consume alcohol or drugs prior to your appointment, as this may interfere with your therapy.

Cancellations
I make a commitment to be available for you during our weekly appointment, for the duration of our work together. The session fee is therefore due if you cancel a session, for any reason, without us having previously agreed to a missed session. I require at least two weeks notice of a cancellation.  If I have to cancel a session and we cannot find a mutually agreeable alternative time, then no fee is due. This policy will be discussed with you during the initial consultation.
