How Do The Therapy Sessions Work?
As individual therapy is the opportunity for someone to share what is going on for them, it is important that they feel comfortable, safe and able to speak freely.
Therefore, I always recommend that someone makes an initial appointment to see me for an introductory session, to see if I am the right person for you and to give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about me and the process of counselling. At the same time, this gives me the opportunity to find out more about you and what problem you are struggling with.
There is absolutely no obligation to continue after the initial session.
Length of Sessions
The counselling sessions are 50 minutes in length.
Number of Sessions
Every person coming to therapy is a unique individual and may need a varying number of sessions. We would discuss this at the beginning together and review this between ourselves at regular intervals, depending upon the individual's goals for their therapy.
The sessions are your opportunity to speak freely about your life. What we talk about is confidential and I am bound by the ethical code of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Just CLICK HERE to visit UKCP.

I will give you a regular time every week to come and see me. As the real strength of therapy is gained through continuity, I would ask you to commit to weekly sessions so you get the maximum benefit out of them.
I ask clients to pay at the end of each session, either by cheque (made out to Jill Davidson), or in cash.
I do need 24 hours notice if you want to cancel a session as I have allocated this time to you. I will have to charge the full fee if I do not have adequate notice.
If you are registered with a Healthcare Insurer, you may be able to get your sessions paid by them. You will need to contact your GP so they can make a referral to your chosen provider. I will require your pre-authorisation number at the first session with you.
