Typical couples sessions are 2 hours and individuals sessions are 1 hours though longer or shorter sessions can be arranged.
Our first few (2-4) sessions will involve an evaluation of your needs. In order to do this effectively I may need access to your medical and mental health treatment records. By the end of the evaluation, I will be able to offer you some first impressions of what our work will include and a treatment plan to follow if you decide to continue with therapy. You should evaluate this information along with your own opinions of whether you feel comfortable working with me. Therapy involves a large commitment of time, money, and energy, so you should be very careful about the therapist you select. If psychotherapy is begun, we will usually schedule one session per week at a time that we agree on, however some therapies require more frequent sessions. Consultation times do need to be adhered to and late or early arrivals are not accommodated for through extending the session time or by starting early.
While you are free to end therapy at anytime that you become ready, it is important that you discuss openly with me your desire to end therapy as soon as you begin thinking about that possibility. A planed termination period is always valuable and essential to acknowledge and summarise what you have accomplished, discuss any of the unfinished concerns that you may have and allow for you to grow out of the actual experience of ending. Similarly, if at any point you decide that I am not the right therapist for you, I encourage you to raise this with me and I will gladly help you to find another suitable therapist if we are unable to resolve the concern.
Please be aware that I invoice, in full, for all booked appointments. I do make provision for two no charge cancellations in any six month period (excluding my cancellations), provided that you cancel 24 hours in advance. This will apply regardless of the circumstances of the cancellation. Justified cancellations of course need to happen for all of us. But consider that when you begin to see me on a regular basis, your regularly time has been scheduled only for you, and cannot be filled by someone else if you cancel. Also, therapy works through the relationship and so consistency and deepening are important. In the case of those cancellations made either by me or by you 24 hours before the booked appointment, I will make all reasonable attempts to accommodate you at another time.
Our fees are comparable to other therapist with similar experience and training. Each month we reserve a number of slots for those who cannot comfortably pay the full fee.
