Counselling takes place in my private therapy room based in Hexham.
If you would like to book in an initial consultation appointment this can be booked by filling in a short referral form online which can be
found on my contact page.
Once this is received I will
confirm with you a start date or inform you of waiting list timescale. Once you have an agreed start date you can go ahead and book your first appointment on the online booking system
which I will send an invite to you . I will contact you to let you know where to come prior to the session.
If the appointment is for a child under 16 the first appointment will always be with the parent or carer on their own first to gather more information . Once the parent session is complete and
we agree on a plan, the therapy with the child can begin.
I will explain how I work and together we can decide if I am the most appropriate person to offer the support you need. This is important to ensure the best way forward for yourself .
I always aim to promote safe and professional support.
I will not share the content of our sessions with a third party. Exceptions to this would be: a) disclosure of abuse of a child or vulnerable adult that is currently at risk, b) serious risk or
danger to yourself or someone else or c) a legal obligation on my part to disclose (eg. Terrorism Act 2000). Where appropriate I will always aim to discuss with you reasons for breaking
confidentiality. These may be govenered by guidelines in realtion to counselling support.
As any good professional practitioner in this line of work its important to have regular supervision. This is to support myself in my work with you and ensure I work with your best
interest in mind. My supervisor is also bound by confidentiality.
Client records are kept in the property of the therapist and are kept locked in Room or password protected if in electronic format. A copy of these notes can be requested in writing at any time.
After six years client records are destroyed confidentially.
