Q&A Q: How many sessions will I need? A: That depends on many factors and will be different for each person in therapy. Q: What if I am on a low income or on government benefits? A: You would be on the lowest rate of £25:00, you also can schedule sessions that suit you best, so you can have one every two weeks, or three, if that will make it easier to afford the sessions. Q: Why will you not accept an E-check? A: I no longer accept E-checks, due to the time needed for them to be possessed, this can take over seven days if you include non- working days and bank holidays. The last invoice must be paid a couple of days before the next session. Q: What if I miss a session because the car broke down, or something happened in my life to make it impossible to attend? A: I do not automatically charge for a missed session, as I think that as disrespectful to you, I understand that we all have a life, and that life can get in the way and disrupt our plans at a moment’s notice, but there are limits and constant missed sessions, will be discussed and in some instances further sessions may be charged for in advance or therapy will have to end. Q: Why don’t you have any testimonials on the website? A: It is considered to be unethical for a therapist to engage a client for advertising purposes, by using the therapeutic relationship to influence their choices, knowing full well that advertising regulators or prospective client’s, can demand the validation of any testimonial from any clients, they can contact any client, and check if they are truthful, and that will jeopardise the clients confidentiality, no matter if the clients permission has been given by the client beforehand. New clients could ask for the old clients contact information, to check the honesty of the person who has given a testimonial, and that will also breach both confidentiality of the new and old clients involved. That must never happen as a client’s confidentiality is paramount. So, any therapist asking for, or using testimonials, is actually placing your confidentiality at risk, and that is unethical and places the clients’ interests and confidentiality, in second place to the therapists need to advertise. I cannot justify doing that. Q: You asked me to see my Doctor, about some physical problems I have, and to get them checked out, do I have to go? A: Yes, you will have to see your Doctor as soon as it is practical for you to do so, or therapy will eventually have to come to an end. I have a duty of care and in some situations, I may ask for the client to seek a medical diagnosis, or an investigation regarding a physical problem, that maybe impacting on your mental health issue. Q: Do you remove clients from your client list, after a time of inactivity, and how long is that time? A: After a period of time (normally about six weeks) has passed with no contact, I will normally send a Skype message or/and email, asking if you want to continue, if I have no response in a few days, I will consider the therapy to have ended, and remove you from the client list. A client may be away on holidays, or they may need some time away from therapy for a number of other reasons, as long as I am given a time scale for a return, I will keep them included as a client. I need to do this to keep my client list relevant, and up to date, or it can get confusing as time goes on. Any client that has been removed due to being unresponsive or inactive can contact me as soon as they are able to continue. A client my be in hospital after an accident or dealing with a death of someone close and unable to communicant with me, but there is no way of me knowing what has happened, I am unable to just leave client accounts open, the data protection act means that I can only keep personal information for a short time without seeking further permission as my privacy policy does not include the criteria to hold on to information unless therapy is continuing. If you have been removed you have done nothing wrong, it is not a punishment or a judgement, just a practical step I need to take to help me keep this service running smoothly.
