Individual Treatment

Therapy contract

If you start therapy then you and your therapist will agree a Therapy “Contract”. This is an informal verbal agreement and includes all the practical arrangements so you are clear and comfortable with all aspects of therapy.

Location: We are located in Harley Street, Victoria, and Monument (near London Bridge) in Central London. We also have satellite offices in Sevenoaks and Mottingham (near Bromley) ensuring client have easy access from South East London, Kent and Surrey. Other locations can be arranged, including home and works visits, please call or speak to your therapists for details.

Times of Session: We have a flexible approach to appointments. We always try to arrange appointments at a time that is convenient to you. This means that taking time out to see your therapist does not have to interfere with your existing commitments.

Fees: For individual private clients fees are payable on a session by session basis in advance. Fees for sessions vary depending on the time, day and location. Fees will remain the same for the duration of therapy. Click here for current fees.

Confidentiality: All therapists are bound by their professional code of conduct regarding confidentiality. A therapist will only breach your confidence if you say something that implies danger to yourself or others.

Communication with External Agencies: If you give permission we like to inform your G.P that you are receiving CBT treatment. Also at the end of treatment we aim to send discharge notification – indicating the effects of treatment. This service is free of charge. With your permission full psychiatric assessments can be provided for medical and legal reports.

Self Help: Patients are actively encouraged to do “homework” such as reading, diaries, exercises between sessions as this has been proven to improve therapy outcomes.

Cancellations: Psychotherapist will attempt to reschedule cancelled appointment if you are unable to attend your booked appointment. We do however operate a 48 hours cancellation policy, or the full fee will be incurred.

Emergency: Your psychotherapist will provide details of contacting the service in a crisis or out of usual office hours. In exceptional cases your therapist will help you formulate a plan of what to do in an emergency.

Termination of Contract: Both parties have the right to terminate a Therapy contract at any time.

Medication: CBT is compatible with most medications. For some disorders a combined approach (medication and therapy) has been shown to work best. If this is the case your psychotherapist will discuss your options with you.

Gifts and Presents: Efficacy therapists are unable to accept gifts from clients to avoid any potential conflict of interests.
