Working Agreement

The therapy contract is something which ensures the safety and well-being of both yourself the client and myself the therapeutic counsellor and is an initial working agreement between us. This includes business and practical arrangements and also an understanding about what you may expect about the process and what you have come to talk about. Having a contract clarifies things for both you and me and you can make an autonomous decision about whether you want to go on with the sessions (BACP ethical principal of autonomy).

 Please read the Individual Therapy Contract or Couples Therapy Contract before coming to the first session.
