I offer face to face sessions at Worting House, Basingstoke and I offer online sessions using Microsoft teams.
We meet at the Basingstoke clinic or on a secure virtual platform (Microsoft teams) and have an assessment of current difficulties. This will involve taking a history and looking at current issues and well as collecting at broader information.
If I am seeing a young person, I will take a developmental history. I will ask you to fill out some baseline measures which are repeated throughout therapy. I provide a report addressed to you and copied to relevant agencies with your permission. All documentation is password protected/anonymised.
I also send you consent forms, registration forms, personal information and terms and conditions ahead of our session and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any enquiries. I organise a password with you to receive information back.
I work to a schedule/agenda at each session – if you are face to face, I discuss this at the beginning of the sessions and if you are online, I send you the agenda and any relevant handouts before the session. You are welcome to add to the agenda and this is discussed at the beginning of the session.
You may have some skills building work to complete between sessions – I send you a summary of what we agreed and any relevant handouts/diaries etc. Part of the agenda of each of the sessions is to focus on in between session homework.
I hold mid-therapy reviews and post therapy reviews to audit the therapy process.
