Skype, FaceTime or Phone appointments
If the session is by phone, Skype or FaceTime, the fee needs to be paid in advance by bank transfer.
Skype, FaceTime and Telephone
Counselling appointments or stress management sessions via Skype, FaceTime and telephone are by prior arrangement and will require the exchange of Skype ID details and telephone numbers in advance of the session. My Skype ID is wendy-martin1
Frequency and Regularity of Sessions
I do not give any recommendation for the number, frequency or regularity of sessions but rather accommodate to the needs of each individual or couple.
For example, some people feel it would be helpful to come every week - and this is what we do. Others, however, would like to come regularly but can only afford to come every other week or every month. Likewise, many of the people I see prefer to use my service as an emotional resource and come when they need some extra support. I am happy to offer whatever makes it possible for you.
I also am able to work very flexibly because some people work shifts or have commitments that mean they cannot come at the same time every week. I am happy to work around your availability.
I also offer appointments at different times throughout the week and as well as daytime appointments I have some evening and Saturday appointments.
If you need to cancel an appointment please give me 24 hours notice either by email or by leaving a voice-mail message and unless there are exceptional, unforeseen circumstances, the full fee is charged.
All sessions start at the arranged time as the session needs to finish at the agreed time.
For face-to-face sessions it is best to make allowances for possible transport or traffic problems.
Likewise, early arrival may interrupt the previous session.
The identity of all individuals with whom I work remains anonymous, and the content of what is shared in sessions is strictly confidential.
The only exception would be in a rare case of concern about a person's safety or a child’s safety, but I would first of all share such concern with the client.
I am, like my own clinical supervisor, bound by strict codes of practice. I work in accordance with the ethical code of practice relating to counselling/psychotherapy and supervision of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy of which I am an accredited member.
