Confidentiality

This counselling is kept confidential. Shona has a responsibility to keep file notes securely locked for medico-legal reasons. If you have a mental health care plan it is a requirement that she writes a report to your GP after 6 and 10 sessions with an overview of issues addressed and changes. If individuals disclose information in individual sessions, relevant information will be encouraged to share with the partner in a couple session.

Cancellations

A fee will apply if a session is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. Please give as much notice as possible if changing appointments.

Feedback

Shona welcomes both negative and positive feedback. If there is something that you are uncertain about or do not like, please let her know. Working through issues like this is an important aspect of the therapy relationship.
