Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a treatment that relies on the commitment and motivation from both the therapist and the client to get the best results. Part of the treatment occurs in the consulting room and part of the treatment is cognitive reflection or homework. As the client, when you agree to undertake a course of treatment you also agree to engage with the process, complete any homework that you are given and listen to the CD’s at appropriate times. It is with commitment and partnership working that you will see the best results.
Therapy Sessions & Fees
Each standard session lasts approximately one hour and the agreed fee per session is as agreed with myself. Fees are payable at the end of each session by cash, cheque or bank transfer. You may pay in advance if you wish, should there be a fixed number of therapy sessions. This may be subject to change from time to time, but any change in fees will be agreed between us.
You commit to attend the appointments that we make. There are two good reasons for this.
- Your attendance at the appointment is part of your commitment to the on-going treatment.
- If you do not cancel in a reasonable time then you have stopped someone else having that appointment.
My cancellation policy requires at least 24 hours notice of cancellation via telephone, text or email. If an appointment is cancelled with less notice then the full session fee will apply.
Arriving Late for an Appointment
If you are running late, please let me know as soon as possible. I will do my best to make a full session available, but this often depends on appointments subsequent to your booking and so cannot be guaranteed. If your session needs to be curtailed due to your late arrival then the session fee remains payable in full.
In order to ensure continued best practice, I receive regular clinical supervision of my work with clients. During supervision it may be necessary to review your treatment but any reference that could allow you to be identified is removed and each client is referenced by a number only. Everything you say will be treated in the strictest confidence with the following exceptions:
Standards of Behaviour
I undertake to treat you with respect and not to abuse the trust you put in me. I will use best practice at all times in our mutual interest. In return, you undertake not to harm yourself, or any other person, including me, or any property belonging either to me or any other person. You agree not to come to sessions under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs, except those medications prescribed by your doctor. If you do come to sessions under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs or demonstrate violent/abusive behaviour, I reserve the right to cancel the session and refuse any further therapy sessions.
