Terms and Fees


Terms and Conditions

If there is any possibility of an underlying medical cause for your symptoms I will ask you to consult with your doctor first, if you have not already done so.

Depending on the outcome of your medical consultation, we may or may not be able to proceed to therapy.

In some circumstances, I may need to write to your doctor before we can proceed but I will always seek your consent before doing so.

The recording of sessions using any form of electronic media is not allowed.

Before commencing therapy I will ask you to sign a declaration which states you are fit to consent to therapy, and accept full and complete responsibility for your emotional and physical well-being, both during and after therapy.

Any fees charged are for my time and expertise.

The benefits obtained from therapy may vary between clients and no guarantee can be offered.

Fees are payable in advance and appointments carry a 24 hour notice period for cancellations.
