Psychotherapy sessions take place weekly, usually on the same day and at the same time.
There are situations where more frequent sessions are required and if this is the case I will suggest this to parents.
If the therapy is for the young person on their own then separate sessions are arranged for parents.
This is to ensure that they are well supported and have the space to express their feelings and reflect on any changes they observe in the relationship with their child and in their child’s behaviour.
The issue of confidentiality is discussed with families at the start of the assessment.
