The work that I do with you and all that you tell me is strictly confidential. I keep all notes protected and secured. I take my work to supervision, which is also confidential.
I adhere to the ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the ethics of the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI).
The outcome of therapy is directly affected by client motivation and commitment to the therapeutic alliance. This includes regular, punctual attendance and attention to the contract. I do always want to know how you are experiencing therapy so I can respond to you. I appreciate your willingness to feedback about the process. We share responsibility for ensuring you are getting what you want from the sessions and do this through honest communication.
Fees are reviewed annually and any increases are made in January. Fees are taken at the time of booking.
Cancelled sessions are non-refundable. If you have to cancel for any reason, including illness, please telephone me to let me know.
I am accredited both as a counsellor and supervisor with the BACP (Senior Accredited) and as a psychotherapist with the UKCP. I have a diploma in Person-Centred Counselling (SPTI) and a post-graduate diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy (SPTI). I have completed a diploma course in clinical supervision and an MA in Humanistic Psychotherapy. I have undergone several years of personal psychotherapy. I have been working as a counsellor, psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer since 1990.
