For the finer details for private individual and couple sessions, company referrals, therapeutic group members, and practitioner supervision please scroll down. 

Individual and couple sessions last approximately an hour and are £55 per session, if you prefer an hour and a half this is £80.  Supervision sessions are £70 for qualified practitioners and £60 for trainees (inclusive of reports and references).  Therapeutic group meetings are two hours and £35 per person.  Payment is due on the day of a session and can be made by cash, cheque or bank transfer.   

I continually provide reduced rates for three charities including ones supporting people living with cancer, burns and scars and bereavement.  I am sorry I am unable to extend reduced rates further than this.
 

Therapy Agreement (individual private referral)

Sessions:  The time, duration and place of sessions will be pre arranged between the client and the therapist.  The client and therapist agree to work together in a therapeutic way.  There may be occasions when therapy would not be appropriate, e.g. due to thoughts, feelings or behaviours being affected by alcohol or medication. 

If the therapist needs to cancel or delay a session, they aim to ensure the client is inconvenienced as little as possible.  If the client needs to cancel a session, they can contact the therapist or leave an answerphone message between 9am-9pm on 0161 860 7378 or email anytime (therapyupnorth@gmail.com).  72 hours notice of cancellation is required.  

The agreed fee is to be paid by the client on the day of the session by cash, cheque or bank transfer.  The agreed fee also applies to a cancelled or missed session with less than 72 hours notice.  This is to be paid by the client before the next session, within 7 days or if the client wishes to end with having an ‘ending session’.  An ‘ending session’ is recommended to consolidate and conclude the work together. 

If the client does not attend a session and does not contact the therapist, the therapist may contact the client to establish the position regarding continuing or ending.  If the client does not respond the therapist will assume their work together has ended.

Confidentiality: What the client says and experiences in therapy is treated as confidential by the therapist.  There are some exceptional circumstances where confidentiality may not be kept, e.g. if someone’s personal safety was seriously considered to be at risk or if the therapist was legally required to do so.  If this was to occur, where possible, the situation would be discussed beforehand between the therapist and the client.

In the event of the death/incapacitation of the therapist an appointed person would contact the client.

Ethics:  The therapist follows the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ‘Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions’.  The client is encouraged to discuss any dissatisfaction or concerns about the therapy with the therapist, if unresolved, complaints can be made directly to The BACP. 

Other boundaries:  The client agrees to inform the therapist of any treatments they receive from other practitioners (e.g. doctor or therapist) or any civil or criminal proceedings they may be involved in.  The client and the therapist agree to inform each other of any changes that may affect their work together and any wish to review this agreement.
