A course of CBT can range from 6 to 20 sessions depending on the nature of a person’s difficulties. On average, I tend to see clients for 10 to 12 sessions, but people respond to therapy at different rates. This can be discussed at assessment.
Everything we discuss is strictly confidential. As a therapist I have both a legal and an ethical duty to protect my clients’ confidentiality. An exception to confidentiality relates to the disclosure of serious risk of harm either to oneself or others. In this circumstance, every effort will be made to speak to you first about any actions I must take.
I have a 48 hour cancellation policy. If less than 48 hours’ notice is given the session will be charged at the full rate. This is because it would then be too late to fill the session and that time would be lost.
