CLIENT THERAPY AGREEMENT
Welcome to my practice. Therapy is a partnership built on mutual trust and respect and I look forward to helping you achieve your goals. This document and the confirmation email contain important information about how we will work together, please read it and let me know if you have any questions.
I know that clients are often time poor and come to me in physical and or emotional pain, so they want rapid results. Accordingly, one of the methods I use in my practice is Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT). I combine RTT with coaching techniques to help you integrate the transformation.
RTT embraces many of the positive aspects of hypnotherapy that are known to produce a transformative effect on clients: the use of trance, regression and hypnotic conditioning however, RTT goes beyond traditional hypnotherapy, using what works with real clients in real sessions to build a new therapeutic approach.
RTT leads to permanent powerful change because it enables you to create new neural pathways while simultaneously removing old pathways leaving you wired to change and to stay changed. RTT is aimed at delivering permanent change in a single session although some clients or issues will need up to 3 or more sessions for each issue.
Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximise personal and professional potential. It is designed to help you develop personal, professional or business goals and to a plan for achieving those goals. You are responsible for acting on and implementing your own decisions, choices, actions and results that come out of our coaching discussions.
My commitment to you
I will act with integrity, openness, honesty and professionalism in everything I do.
You can contact me on email or mobile. I will try to return your call or message within 24 hours.
I will not make decisions for you, but I will offer suggestions.
Your records are strictly confidential unless you have given me permission to speak to others, I am required to disclose information by law or I believe you are a risk to yourself or others.
I will retain your records and shred them after 5 years or sooner at my discretion.
I will be open to your feedback about how I can improve my service.
I am insured, supervised and a member of a professional body and subscribe to their code of ethics.
I do not diagnose or treat disease and I am not a physician. These sessions are not a substitute for diagnosis or treatment from a qualified medical practitioner.
Please raise any complaints with me in the first instance.
Your commitment to me
You need to be open, frank and honest with me always. You agree to let me know if you have any concerns about our work together.
You need to give the appropriate time and energy to participate fully in the program.
You must show commitment to your appointments, value and prioritise them. Please arrive or call me on time, as your appointment will need to end at the agreed time even if you arrive or start it late.
Please provide 48 hours’ notice if you cannot attend or need to change your appointment.
Achieving positive outcomes requires an active effort on your part. To be most successful, you will have to work during our sessions or calls and at home.
You are responsible for listening to any recordings I give you for a minimum of 21 days to reinforce the positive changes introduced during the session.
If you have questions about my approach or process let me know.
The first session takes 2 hours and will involve an evaluation of your needs. We will agree the ideal course of therapy for you between us depending on the specific issues you want to work on. Most people find that they may need only one session to make a permanent change. However, this may vary according to your individual circumstances and requirements and you may need a longer program.
If we agree on a program (course of therapy), you are free to leave the program at any time, just let me know if you choose to do this. Depending on the length of your program you may have to pay me a cancellation fee.
I will charge you for your appointment if you do not attend or you cancel it without 24 hours’ notice.
We will agree the time and location of our follow up meetings together. You are responsible for attending on zoom at the relevant time for all scheduled calls or attending at my rooms, as agreed for in person appointments.
I will be available by email and voicemail in between our scheduled meetings within reason.
How to get the most out of the program
Personal change can be swift or slow depending on many factors, including personal motivation, the severity and complexity of the problem, how ambitious your goals are, etc. Be patient with yourself.
Come with a positive expectation that our session will be helpful and productive. Sometimes RTT involves recalling and talking about unpleasant events in your life. As a client you are involved with me in uncovering and changing the meaning and interpretation of past events. When regressed to past events, you are not reliving them, you are simply reviewing them which allows you to understand their meaning in relation to your current problem.
Speak openly about your ideas of what will help.
Understand that change often requires practice and perseverance.
Be aware that no therapist can offer a guarantee of a cure or improvement and individual results may vary.
When does the program start and end?
Your program starts from the date of the first session (as indicated in your confirmation email) and ends 30 days, 6 weeks or 12 weeks after that date respectively, depending on which program you have chosen to participate in. The details of your program will be set out in the confirmation email.
Either of us can end this Agreement by written notice to the other. You agree to pay me for all services that have been provided up to the date of termination as described below, under Payment.
Unless we agree otherwise, you will need to pay for each program in full before we start. The full fee for each program is indicated in the online booking link or confirmation email. If you cancel the program before it starts you may be given a partial refund depending on the duration of your program and how you have chosen to pay. There is no refund available to you after a 30-day program starts. If you commit to a 6 or 12-week program and you pay by instalment and you choose to cancel, you are obliged to pay 75% of the full fee less any payments you have already made as a cancellation charge.
You agree to these terms and to allow me to hypnotise you and to do your best to follow my instructions, so you can benefit from this therapy when you click the booking link.
Thank you for coming to see me. I look forward to working with you towards positive outcomes.
