~ Session Information ~
We can work face to face from my office in Featherston, in South Wairarapa, New Zealand or by phone or Zoom if you are located in another region or country.
A session is most often 60 mins. Sometimes one or a few sessions is all that is required, sometimes people come for regular sessions over a longer period of time. This is something that will be worked out between us, and depends on many factors including the types of issues that you want to deal with and the purpose of your sessions. Longer or shorter sessions are available if required.
It is really important to work with someone you feel is a good fit for you, and I welcome hearing from you if you’d like more information or have any questions at all.
Research shows that the most important factor for effective therapy or coaching is the therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist/coach. So that's why it's very important, and I encourage clients to use the first session to work out if the match is right to work well together.
60 min session $110
90 min session $150
30 min session $65
I am not taking any new clients at the moment as I am full. I am available during school hours and don't work during the school holidays.
In working together I respect your confidentiality, what we discuss remains completely private. If during therapy you disclose harmful thoughts towards yourself or others and I am concerned about your or someone else's safety, I will discuss appropriate options for us to take together. If we see each other in public, I will not approach or greet you, I will follow your lead to uphold your confidentiality. I keep some longhand notes about our sessions together, these are also confidential and kept locked away. After 10 years the notes will be shredded.
Cancellations, Arriving Late & Missed Sessions
If you are unable to attend a session for whatever reason, please let me know as soon as possible, as this gives me the chance to fill the session time that was reserved for you. For in person clients if you are unwell working via Zoom or phone is an option.
If you cancel with at least 24 hours notice, there will be no charge. However, if you notify me after 24 hours there will be an 50% charge for the missed session. If you forget or miss your appointment time without letting me know the full session fee will be charged. If you have missed or cancelled a few sessions in a row, we will discuss how to support you to engage in the sessions and what may be happening.
If you arrive late it will mean you miss out on your full session time. I do understand that at times life happens,
I will inform you as soon as possible if I need to reschedule or cancel our appointment.
As part of my practice and to ensure I am maintaining best practice I attend supervision. The purpose is to improve the quality of the work I do with clients. As part of supervision I will discuss the people I see with my supervisor. During these conversations I will not reveal your identifying information. My supervisor also follows confidentiality, by keeping our conversation private.
The wound is the place
where the Light enters you.
