About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced, professional Psychotherapist/ Counsellor, who has been in Independent Practice for over fifteen years. I also have the added advantage of working in another caring profession, and worked as a Nursing Sister for many years in an acute Hospital setting. I believe the integration of both these professions has enhanced my skills, knowledge, and realistic understanding of the nature of my work as a psychotherapist.
My first session
The session are scheduled weekly, and the day and time are usually agreed at the beginning. This is important in establishing a regular pattern, and a sense of structure, continuity, and rhythm. It may be appropriate to be seen initially for 4 - 6 sessions and then review and continue, or stop at that point. This will depend on the issue being dealt with, and how you feel the sessions are progressing. It is suggested to highlight any anticipated changes due to working or domestic commitments, as early as possible.
Confidentiality. Personal private or intimate information is held in complete confidence. No outside or unauthorised party has access to any information about a client.
There is however one area where confidentiality might be breached, and that is if a client`s personal safety comes into question, or if a client poses a threat to others.
As I am a registered and accredited member of the BACP i am required to have regular ongoing supervision as part of the Ethical Framework. No confidential or identifiable material is disclosed.
Record and note keeping. It is a requirement of my profession that written records of sessions and contracts are made and kept. The records are kept in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 either electronically, or hand written and secured under lock and key.
A Minimum of 24hrs notice is required for cancellation.
