Session topics, as well as your personal data will remain confidential between us, except for some circumstances which we will discuss during the first assessment session.
Like all counsellors, I attend professional supervision. These sessions are to ensure that the work we do together is the best possible and adheres to the standards required by my professional body. During these sessions you personal data will not be shared.
Sessions are 50 minutes long and take place weekly at the same time and on the same day unless contracted otherwise (these would be seen as exceptions).
The first session/assessment would be a chance for you to let me know your reasons to come to counselling and an opportunity for both to understand whether we would like to work together.
If we agree to do so, I will ask you to fill in some forms.
We will also agree a day/time when to meet and for how long (whether for a precise number of sessions i.e. short term, or open ended).
Regardless of the length of the therapy I would ask not to terminate the work abruptly as ending are as important in the counselling relationship as well as in the everyday life ones.
Missing sessions with less than 48 hours notice will need to be paid in full.
Should I cancel a session or during an agreed holiday time, sessions will not be charged.
Payments are accepted in cash on the day or, if preferred, via bank transfer (either monthly or per session). Fees are reviewed on yearly basis.
I offer clinical supervision to trainees and experienced counsellors and psychotherapist regardless of their therapeutic approach.
I keep the 3-way relationship between me, you and your client at the centre of my work as I see supervision as an all-encompassing space where to explore and reflect on your work and also learn from one another.
I believe supervision to be paramount in our therapeutic work and the importance of providing a supportive environment where therapists can feel safe to honestly and openly discuss their work and their practice.
Keeping in mind ethical boundaries and framework, containing risks factors. Establishing and identifying any training needs.
Please note that any report needed, if not completed within the session, will be charged according to the hourly rate agreed.
I work both in English and Italian.
