My  terms


One to one work

  1.  Confidentiality is assured except I am legally obliged to notify the police if I feel there is threat of terrorism, or you are engaging in fraud. If I feel there is risk of harm to children, others, yourself or animals I would also legally and morally need to share this information with the correct authorities and/or local Crisis Team. 

  2. If you disclose that you have suicidal tendencies or I feel you or others are at risk of significant harm, we can agree what steps you would like me to take, that you would find most supportive, but I retain the right to contact your GP/police even without your permission, if I feel this is the best course of action to keep you safe.

  3. I may discuss our work together, anonymously with my supervisor, who is there to guide me and support my professional work.

  4. I may be required to disclose information for a coroner or by a court of law.  I will provide the legal minimum I able to provide such as dates you attended and generic topics covered, should I be required, in law, to do so.

  5. I may also share your information with my insurer if required to do so or with any legal body, should the need arise for the purpose of them providing myself with legal or other advice.

  6. 1:1 appointments are non-refundable and non-transferable unless cancelled within 24 hours. 

  7. If you need to change an appointment, you must notify me by phone, text or email and ensure you have had a reply from me. I will reschedule as soon as there is space, if at least 24 hour's notice is given.

  8. There are regular times that I am only available to work on online, as I often travel away from home.  Zoom work will continue if you are happy with that or you can have a gap during periods if I am unavailable in person.

  4. CONDUCT IN GROUP SESSIONS - It is important that participants behave with kindness at all times.

Mindfulness is essentially based upon a need to feel safe and authentic which requires everyone to show kindness to one another and themselves.
