What happens in the first session?

In the first session I will gather an understanding of your difficulties and discuss how therapy may benefit you. We also discuss what psychological methods may best suit you. Attending your first session can be a bit unnerving, especially if you have never attended therapy in the past. This is something that in my experience 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, I 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 we can evaluate your progress and treatment direction. 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 session, please discuss this with me and I will tailor therapy to the best of my ability to suit your needs.

What about costs, insurance plans and appointment details?

Your first session is charged at half price (£40) in order for us to see how you may benefit from therapy and whether you would like to work with me. My office is on Great George Street in Leeds City Center and is easily accessible by car or public transport. Clients who are funded by insurance companies are also welcome.
