Cancellations & Unattended Sessions Charges
Regularity and continuity are important in therapy, as they give a feeling of reliability and structure to the process. We will agree on the days and times of your meetings (normally weekly) and those times will then be set aside for you.
A cancellation charge of £50 will be payable on all arranged sessions, where there is less than 48 hours notice given. However, if I know in advance that you cannot attend a session, and there are openings during that appointment week we may be able to find an alternative time, in which case no cancellation charge will be made. Same day cancellations or unattended sessions will incur the full fee.
Making an appointment:
If you would like to make an appointment please telephone (020) 8445 1369, or (020) 7813 1333 during the hours of 10am – 6pm, Monday to Friday.
If you would have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
During the consultation, we will agree which problems seem to be the most important. After this initial discussion you may be asked to fill in some questionnaires to get a more detailed measure of your difficulties, after which we will agree a certain number of sessions. Most courses of cognitive therapy last from 5 to 15 weeks, with once-weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes.
It’s probably a good idea to make a note of the problem so that you are satisfied you know what you want to change, i.e., what a good outcome for you would be. This will save time during the initial consultation and also give us a starting point for deciding what a realistic outcome might be.
