Privacy, confidentiality, terms and conditions
Face-to-face sessions last around an hour. Skype sessions are also available on request. For my fees and availability click this button.
Refunds and cancellation policy
When you book an appointment with me, I commit to making that time available for you, and close that time to anyone else.
If you need to cancel for any reason, as long as you give me 48 hours notice, the fee will be refunded. You can cancel through the confirmation email.
Your time is valuable and so is mine. If you cancel after the 48 hours limit or fail to turn up, for any reason, you will be charged in full.
If you are late for your appointment, the session will end at the scheduled time, meaning your session will unfortunately be shorter. I have reserved this time for you and only you and have other people scheduled after your time.
In turn, I promise to honour our appointments and be on time as well.
Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy is a collaborative process in which the client and therapist work together as a team on a range of interventions identified as likely to be helpful. The number of sessions it takes varies depending on the problems and the individual. My aim is to provide a brief but comprehensive therapy using evidence-based techniques and approaches, with the intention of giving you the best chance of achieving the changes you are looking for. As with all therapeutic or medical interventions, success cannot be guaranteed, as progress depends in part upon the motivation and active participation of the client.
Protecting your personal information
Your personal details will not be shared with anyone for any purpose. Under privacy laws I cannot keep information when the purpose for which is was created has ended. I keep a record of your given name and email address so that I can from from time to time send you information by email where I feel it will be of interest to you. You can unsubscribe from this at any time, using the unsubscribe button within the email or by contacting me by phone or email. I use your personal information only for the purpose of therapy. Our therapy sessions are confidential between client and therapist. All notes taken during the course of therapy will be shredded at the end of treatment, which I define as when I have not heard from you for 2 months.
Some moral and legal limitations apply to confidentiality. A therapist has a responsibility both to the client and to the community at large. These limitations mainly concern risk of serious self-harm, harm to others and child protection. If a situation arises in which the moral or legal limits of confidentiality are exceeded, this will be explained and discussed with you.
