First appointment

Initially we would meet for an assessment appointment. This gives me the opportunity to understand your difficulties and for us both to consider whether I can help and whether we can work together. It is very important that you feel absolutely comfortable working with me.

You will be asked to describe the difficulties you are experiencing and how they have developed. In addition you will probably be asked questions about your background and previous experiences. If we decide to work together I would normally contract with you to meet for 4 sessions initially. A review session will take place at the end of the fourth session where we can jointly assess progress and agree the next course of action. The number of sessions required varies depending upon the client and the type of difficulties they present with.

 

Sessions

Each session lasts for 50 minutes and starts on time. If you are arriving late we will still end at the usual time as to not delay the next person. 

Cancellation of appointments: If you wish to cancel an appointment I require a minimum of 24 hours notice otherwise you will be liable for the full cost of the missed session.
