I offer a complimentary initial consultation at the beginning of your course of hypnotherapy appointments. (No fees are payable at this stage). The number of sessions that you’ll need depend on your circumstances and I discuss this during the initial consultation. I hold these at either my home practice at Southfield Road, Bude or at Neetside Community Centre, Bude.
Hypnotherapy relies on commitment and motivation from both the therapist and the client to get the best results. Part of my work occurs in the consulting room and part of the work is cognitive reflection or homework. As the client, when you agree to undertake a course of sessions you also agree to engage with the process. Complete any homework that you are given and listen to the CD’s at appropriate times. It is with commitment and partnership working that you will see the best results.
You commit to attend the appointments that we make. There are two good reasons for this.
- Your attendance at the appointment is part of your commitment to the on-going work.
- If you do not cancel in a reasonable time then you have stopped someone else having that appointment.
Flexible and convenient appointments usually available, book early to avoid disappointment.
Initial consultation (1 hr) this is complimentary and no charges apply
Hypnotherapy session (1 hr) £50.
Stop smoking session (2 hrs) £140.
I accept the following methods of payment: debit & credit cards / cash / PAYM mobile phone payments.
In order to ensure continued best practice, I receive regular clinical supervision of my work with clients. During supervision it may be necessary to review your progress. Any reference that could allow you to be identified is removed and each client is referenced by a number only. Everything discussed is treated in the strictest of confidence.
Standards of Behaviour
I undertake to work with respect and not to abuse the trust you put in me. I will use best practice at all times in our mutual interest. In return, you undertake not to harm yourself, or any other person, including me, or any property belonging either to me or any other person. Therefore, you agree not to come to sessions under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs, except those medications prescribed by your doctor.
My cancellation policy requires 24 hours notice of cancellation via telephone, text or email. I reserve the right to charge the full fee if 24 hours notice is not given.
Late Payment Charge
I charge statutory interest on overdue invoices at 8% plus the current Bank of England rate on a daily basis. Subsequently, if I do not receive payment within 30 days of the invoice I reserve the right to charge a late payment fee of £10.00
Arriving Late for an Appointment
If you are running late, please let me know as soon as possible. As a result, I will do my best to make a full session available. This often depends on appointments subsequent to your booking and so cannot be guaranteed.
