The Foundation for an Effective Relationship
Session length is one hour, you have the option to schedule double sessions if you wish.
Our sessions and all notes are confidential. I may record some notes that will be kept in your file along with any other information obtained during the course of therapy. The files are securely stored in a locked cabinet. If you wish you may have access to our file. Information in your file will only be shared with others with your signed authorization, unless I am legally required to breach confidentiality in the following situations:
- You reveal info information that indicates a clear and immediate danger of injury to yourself/or others
- You disclose information that indicates possible abuse of a child
- I am subpoenaed by a judicial court order Public Confidentiality
If we meet in public it is your right to acknowledge me or not. I will not initiate communication or contact with you except for professional therapeutic purposes.
If you must cancel a previously scheduled appointment, please contact me at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment. Missed appointments or those cancelled with less than 24 hours notice means that I can not schedule another client into that time. There is no charge for sessions cancelled with 24 hours notice. For missed appointments and those cancelled without 24 hours notice, you will be charged the full rate.
Personal commitment to psychotherapy is crucial for success. It is important to be as active, open and honest as you can in the sessions. Please provide any information that you think may be important to our work together.
To strive to meet the goals set in therapy, you may be asked to do work between sessions. This may include writing in a journal, thinking about material covered in the sessions, monitoring behaviours you would like to change, reading a book or article, or practicing a new skill.
Please arrive on time for appointments so you get the full benefit of your session
Please honour the cancellation policy
