Further Information

Our associates are all highly trained, experienced and accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists.

The advantages of private therapy is that you will see an experienced trained and accredited therapist working to the latest evidence base and regulated by a professional body. We can swiftly respond to your individual needs and meet at time and place convenient to you. We provide a discrete and professional service designed to meet your needs.

We can provide reports and liaise with any health care professionals at your request as necessary.

Confidentiality

All discussions that take place in your therapy sessions are treated as confidential with the following exceptions.

We are required to seek supervision by our professional body (BABCP, Nursing and Midwifery Council) as a means of ensuring good practice. This means that your case will be discussed with our clinical supervisor. This person is however, also bound by the same strict code of conduct regarding confidentiality as we are.

We will usually inform your referrer of your progress if this is requested, but the details that we disclose will be discussed with you. We do have a statutory obligation to break confidentiality under rare circumstances, namely, if we believe that a client is of danger to themselves or to others (under the Mental Health Act, 2001) or if we believe that a child is at actual risk (The Children Act, Section 47, 1989).

Fees

We offer a free initial telephone consultation to clarify the nature of your difficulties and establish if your problems are amenable to CBT. If we are not able to help, we will make every effort to signpost you to an appropriate service.

Fees will be discussed during this initial consultation. We routinely provide a contract to outline the nature of our service and will provide an invoice and receipts per session.

Benefits of CBT include:

  • Offers an alternative to, or works with medications prescribed by your GP
  • Help you retain employment or return to work after a period of sickness
  • CBT can increase coping strategies and find new ways of managing that you may not have considered
  • Can help you improve relationships and physical health by reducing negative coping strategies
  • Assists to improve quality of life and gain a sense of wellbeing
