Exceptions:  If a child is reported to be at risk this has to be reported.  

Major acts of crime or terrorism, including drug trafficking, cannot be withheld.

 

Supervision:  As a member of BACP it is a requirement that casework is discussed with a supervisor.  This ensures a high level of work.  Case issues are explored but not the names or identities of clients.

Availability:  I work during normal office hours Monday – Friday. I may be engaged and unable to answer queries immediately so please leave a text, email or message and allow time for a response. Texts are the most convenient if you are delayed in traffic etc.

 

How I work:  When we first meet we will try to understand more about what has brought you along. After an assessment session we will make a contract to work for a number of sessions, usually six. We will work with a main focus which is agreed together. Work is reviewed every six weeks to ensure your needs and expectations are being met. Then another contract is undertaken if required.  Some prefer to work in an open-ended way and that is possible.

 

Cancellation:  Two full days are required or a charge of £20 may be made. If you have complicated work/childcare patterns please let me know in advance. If you are funded by Health Insurance or your workplace this cancellation charge can be paid for by you or you may forfeit the session. I will  try to offer an alternative session the same week.
