Expectations of therapy: Each individual responds differently so I plan and tailor your therapy to best match your needs, individual requirements and personality type. I use a multi-modal approach to therapy based upon your individual needs.
There are no guarantees that any of these courses of action will solve your issues. It is my intention to help you to help yourself, by facilitating a deep awareness of what is actually troubling you and helping you to empower yourself to make the appropriate changes. I will make no promises that I can help you, however, I can promise to do my best to help you.
What you are paying for is my professional time and not necessarily a cure.
I will ask you to do homework in between sessions and it is up to you to undertake these tasks in order to gain positive benefit and progression in your treatment and recovery.

Terms and Conditions
All that takes place within the therapy sessions is treated with respect, discretion and strict confidentiality. I will keep confidential notes, to assist with future treatment, in secure files when not in use. Your GP, family, spouse, employer, or place of study, etc., will not know anything about your therapy sessions and neither will anything go on your medical record without your prior written consent. There are a few exceptions for legal or safety reasons including but not limited to: if you are about to cause harm to yoursel or others, or if you are under the age of 18. In some cases, in order to give you the best possible treatment and to further enhance the effectiveness of therapy I would ask that treatment be carried out with the knowledge of your General Practitioner or other health care professional. However this can only happen with your prior written consent.
My office accepts checks, cash, credit cards (Mastercard, Visa, American Express & Discover), and PayPal. Payment is expected at the time of service. I do not particpate with any insurance companies and I do not expect that this will change.
Therapeutic appointments last approximately 45 minutes unless stated otherwise.
If you opt for a package of appointments, the sessions may vary in length.
The first session is often a little longer than subsequent sessions.
Contact and support between sessions is included in the price.
Time between appointments may vary, however, package appointments should be taken within 8 weeks from start to finish unless agreed in advance with Dr. Alison.
I will endeavour to give as much notice as possible should we need to alter the timing of our session or cancel, in the event of an emergency. Once a session is booked, I reserve the right to charge in full for any cancellations with less than 24 hours notice unless you exercise your cancellation rights as explained below.
If you arrive late for your session we will still finish at the time it was due to finish and you will be charged the full fee.
If you are undertaking a longer course of treatment, please let me know if you have any holidays planned, and I will of course do the same with you.
All reasonable steps will be taken to ensure your safety physically and psychologically. I will refuse to see anyone under the influence of alcohol or non-prescribed drugs.
Free parking is available outside.
Please consult your doctor for any medical issues. I do not give medical advice of any kind and as such if you are receiving medical treatment for any issue that you come to therapy for, please ask the permission of your doctor. Payment is for my professional time, and I do not guarantee a cure for any problem.
I guarantee to be 100% committed to helping you to help yourself and I do my very best to give you the best possible treatment I can. However, I cannot guarantee you will achieve your desired outcome – you are the only one who can guarantee your success.
