Therapy Space, Portishead
I am happy to talk to you on the telephone for up to 15 minutes to help you decide if I am a good fit for you. Please text or email to find a convenient time for us to speak. There is no charge for this initial call.
If you still feel comfortable after our telephone call, we can arrange our first appointment. This will last for up to 30 minutes and aims to give you chance to find out what it might be like working with me, either face-to-face here in Portishead, or by zoom. There is no charge for this first meeting.
If you decide you want to work with me, the next step is to think more deeply about what has brought you to therapy. We will complete a clinical measure form in this session, agree our focus and settle on how many sessions we will meet for. The session lasts for up to 50 minutes and costs £50. You can choose to meet in person, by zoom or via telephone. Payment is made in advance by bank transfer.
I offer weekly therapy sessions that are 50 minutes long. Sessions usually take place on the same day, at the same time each week. You can choose to meet in person, by zoom or via telephone and we will agree times for reviews to reflect on our progress. I charge £50 for sessions that take place between 9 am and 4 pm Monday to Sunday and £60 for sessions that take place after 4 pm. Payment is made in advance using bank transfer.
I can sometimes offer a reduced fee to trainee counsellors, students and keyworkers where required.
If you are unable to make your appointment, please let me know. If less than 7 days’ notice is given, then I will charge you the full fee for the session. I will try to offer an alternative if required, but this may not always be possible. I will give you as much notice as I can whenever I will not be available.
My work with you is supervised to make sure that I work within the ethical boundaries required by the BACP. This means that I will need to discuss your case in supervision to make sure that I am providing a safe, supportive, effective counselling service to you.
I offer a confidential service, but there are limits to confidentiality that you need to know about before you undertake therapy. This includes the fact that I have to discuss my work in supervision, that I have a duty to keep you, and others, safe and that I have to work within the boundaries of the law.
My privacy notice sets out how I manage and safeguard your data.
