Client Therapist Agreement
The points below have been discussed between myself and my therapist, I understand them and agree to work with my therapist within the terms of this agreement.
My therapist abides by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy “Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy”, a copy of which is available on request.
Information and details of sessions are confidential. This confidentiality does not cover the following:
- Where I have reason to believe that you may cause serious injury or harm to yourself or to another individual
- Where I have reason to believe that someone, especially a child, is at risk of harm
- Disclosure of terrorist acts, drug and human trafficking and /or money laundering
- Where I am legally compelled to do so
Where possible, my therapist will always inform me first if any information under the above points occurs and the action the therapist will take.
Length of sessions
Therapy is offered for 50 minutes on a weekly basis. Myself and my therapist will review the counselling every six weeks in order to determine how the counselling is going, and contract to more sessions if deemed appropriate.
Therapy is £80.00 per session and must be paid by cash, cheque or bank transfer on the day of the session.
Cancellation of a session
I will need to give a minimum of 48 hours’ notice if I am unable to make a session by either calling, texting or emailing my therapist. If this amount of notice is not given, the session will still be charged for.
Holidays will be notified to me 4 weeks ahead.
Crisis outside the counselling session
I am not available outside the agreed session hours. I will discuss with you any emergency services you may need.
