HOW DO I KNOW IF THIS IS THE RIGHT APPROACH FOR ME?
I offer an initial meeting where you are free to ask any me questions about the way I work.
The initial meeting will also provide us both with the opportunity to decide whether the Core Process way of working is a suitable therapeutic approach for you.
Should you wish to make a further commitment then I suggest we have six sessions before you commit to any longer- term therapy.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO COME?
Psychotherapy does require a weekly commitment as we will be working together in depth and it is important to maintain a sense of continuity. It is usual to keep to the same time and day each week. If your job involves shift work then I would try my best to arrange a more flexible way for you to achieve the weekly sessions.
WHAT ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY?
Everything that passes between us in a session is held in confidence except for the purposes of ongoing clinical supervision. In supervision great care is taken to protect your confidentiality and anonymity. Your material will be treated with the utmost respect. I follow the GDPR guidelines on information and data protection and I am registered with the Information Commissioners Office.
HOW MUCH ARE THE FEES?
I am currently offering concessional rates for Core Process Psychotherapy at the cost of £45.00 for a sixty minute session.
My rates for Employee Assisted Work Based Counselling (referrals and payments from organisations) is £45.00 for a sixty minute session.
My fees for individual Counselling for a sixty minute session is £ 50.00 per hour.
Individual psychotherapy sessions are held on a weekly basis and are scheduled (wherever possible) on the same day of each week and at the same time unless otherwise negotiated.
Should you wish to make a further commitment then I offer six sessions followed by a review. This provides an opportunity to decide whether Core Process Psychotherapy is the right approach for you.
Whilst Covid restrictions are in place, my consultation room at The Samye Centre will not be in use. All sessions will be on line or via the phone until Covid restrictions are lifted and face to face sessions can resume.
