What happens in the first session?

In the first session an assessment is made of your current difficulties and of how therapy can benefit you. Attending your first session can be unnerving, especially if you have never attended therapy in the past. This is something that is overcome quickly as you become familiar with the process. 

Are my details kept confidential?

As a member of the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council, all Psychologists abide by codes of ethics whereby all your details will be kept confidential. An exception would only be made if your life, or others, were at great risk of harm. In such cases, you will be notified beforehand.

How long will I have to be in therapy?

Regular reviews will take place where your progress and treatment direction will be evaluated. Therapy length depends on various factors such as complexity of difficulties, motivation, commitment and financial circumstance. Some people prefer long term therapy over a number of years, other prefer short term therapy. If you would like a certain amount of sessions, please share this and efforts will be made to tailor therapy length to suit your needs.

What about costs, insurance plans and appointment details?

Your first session is charged at half price (£40) to see how you may benefit from therapy. The office is on 55 Great George Street in Leeds City Centre and is easily accessible by car or public transport. Clients who are funded by insurance companies are also welcome.
