Individual Therapy/Counseling

Individual work may be CBP/CBT or ICP or EMDR (or a combination) and refers to work contracted with an individual person. The person may be an adult or a child or young person with agreement from parents or adults with parental responsibility.  Those over 16 may commission their own individual psychotherapy or counselling.

Consultancy

Consultancy may take a number of forms and have a variety of purposes or functions. It is usually offered to agencies and organisations.  It is unlike clinical supervision. An organisation may present systemic problems to discuss or seek assistance with groups of staff related to their work or workplace environment.

Family Work

Family work may be CBP/CBT or ICP.  A family may be more than two generations, may or may not be all living together and may include step parents or children. Adults may be married, divorced, separated, co-habiting or same sex. Family members may not all attend all sessions- who should and wants to come will be discussed and negotiated.

Clinical Supervision

Clinical supervision refers to supervision in a particular approach with regard mainly to client work, practice skills and therapist development. Clinical supervisors will all be accredited practitioners with their own professional body; except in ICP where "accreditable" status is acceptable to the professional body, BACP. This is a formal arrangement and will be subject to a contract being agreed by the parties to supervision.

Training

Short training courses or workshops in ICP or CBP/CBT may be commissioned by arrangement and negotiation.

Letters and Reports

Letters and reports may be requested by clients for employers or other purposes. The therapist can only provide such letters or reports within the limits of their particular skillbase and the confidentiality arrangements agreed with the client and the commissioner of the therapy (should they be different). Letters and reports are not generally part of therapy and require additional agreements with the therapist, ideally at commencement of therapy. If agreement has not been sought prior to starting therapy, the therapist will not be bound to provide such reports. Letters and reports from therapists are not a substitute for Psychiatric or Psychology reports and letters.

Contracts

Contracts refer to agreements made with businesses or agencies to provide a service or training to employees of that business or agency. These are negotiated with the individual practitioner(s) on request.
