Will the work be confidential?
YES, Confidentiality is an important component in the sense of safety that is essential in a therapeutic relationship.
Confidentiality means that you can discuss whatever you need to and feel safe in the knowledge that the information will not leave the room.
I take my responsibility to work confidentially very seriously. There are times however, on very rare occasions when I will need to break confidentiality for professional reasons - where there is a risk of danger either to yourself or others and in these circumstances I will consult with you on all matters beforehand.
What happens if I cannot attend one week?
Once we commence our work together, that day and time is allocated solely for your use. It is 'your time' and 'your space'. Like all things in life the unexpected can and does happen. Should this occur and you are not able to make the appointment I will endeavour to try and find another time for you that week.
What happens next?
You can either contact me by phone on 07949068680 or email me at [email protected] I endeavour to return all calls and emails within 24 hours with a view to an appointment within 7 days.
During the assessment you will have an opportunity to discuss what brought you to therapy and I will take down some details of your family history and your relationships. At the end of the fifty minutes you can decide whether you feel that we can work together.
How long will I have to come?
This will depend on you and your requirements. Some people just want to work out one issue that they are grappling with, others who have more deep seated issues to do with their childhood, relationships, and identity will come for months or even years. Each therapy is tailor made to your individual needs and requirements. We can discuss this when we meet in more detail.
