My ethical charter

I abide by the Codes of Ethics set out by the Association for Dance Movement Psychotherapy UK, the UK Council for Psychotherapy and the British Psychological Society.

These ethical codes include:

  • operating in the best interest of clients and their autonomy
  • respect for diversity and equality
  • adhering to the highest standards of privacy and confidentiality
  • maintaining awareness of and working within national legal frameworks
  • upholding personal and professional integrity through ethical conduct
  • openness and honesty around knowledge, skills and experience
  • clear communication and notification to clients
  • obtaining client consent to treatment
  • keeping records according to Data Protection laws
  • holding appropriate insurance

I offer a free 30-minute consultation, assessment and client-therapist agreement prior to beginning work together. After this, my fees are £55 per ‘55-minute hour’, however in certain circumstances (i.e. financial difficulties) this can be reduced by temporary arrangement to allow access to therapy. Please ask for more details.
