Fees & Payment
I offer a confidential service and this is discussed with you during your initial appointment. Under normal circumstances, nothing you say goes beyond the counselling room unless you want it to. I believe this offers a basis for the trust between us that is necessary if you are to feel that it is safe to talk about very private and sensitive aspects of your life. In exceptional circumstances, I may pass on information with or without your agreement. Such circumstances arise very rarely and would be those in which I became concerned that you or someone else may be at serious risk, if information is not disclosed.
As a Clinical Registrant of PACFA and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) it is a requirement that I receive regular clinical supervision. This enables me to maintain the quality of my work. Great care is taken to not identify you. I keep short session notes for each counselling session and these are kept separate from any personal details so that your identity cannot be revealed. Information is kept within the guidelines of the Data Protection Act 1998.
