My Terms & Conditions of Service
My name is Tina Deas and I work independently as a therapist in my own private practice at A Time For You. I am a registered and accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist with the BACP and work within their ethical framework. Whilst counselling underpins all of the work that I do within my practice, I am also registered, insured and qualified to offer Reiki treatments, Hypnotherapy, EFT, Matrix Re-imprinting, Personal Life Coaching, Lifestyle Medicine, Clinical Supervision and Training.
I have developed my own unique, holistic approach as a therapist at A Time For You and during your treatment with me you can benefit from the additional therapies/techniques that I offer where appropriate and time permitting. Whilst I always endeavour to do everything within my ability to facilitate a successful treatment outcome, it is also reliant on your active participation and your interest in promoting your own healing and well-being.
Everything you say during your sessions with me is confidential. As is necessary to practise, my work is overseen by a clinical supervisor and this is done in a way that is respectful to our confidential relationship.
If I were to have any serious concerns that you or any other person were at risk of serious harm, it may be necessary to break confidentiality to limit any danger. Wherever possible, any concerns would be shared with you and your permission sought before anyone else would be contacted.
Fees, Session Duration And Payment
Current fees are available on request and are clearly shown on my website www.atimeforyou.net. My fees are competitively priced and regularly reviewed. Some concessions may be available.
Sessions are 50 minutes in duration unless we mutually agree to longer or shorter sessions. If you arrive late for your session, we will still finish on time. Payments are to be made at the beginning of the session by cash, cheque or card. I require that online payments are in my account before you attend. Please note, there is a £1.00 charge for all card payments.
When we book a session, I am committed to being available for you and I trust you to attend. I require 48 hours' notice if you are unable to attend for any reason. If I receive less than 24 hours notification of non attendance, the full session fee will be due and need to be paid before the next session. Card payments can be taken over the phone.
Your personal contact details are kept securely and any brief session notes remain the property of Tina Deas at A Time For You. In accordance with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) this information will not be shared with any third party. Any session notes will be destroyed 6 months after the last session that you attended. If you have a planned break in your therapy, I will keep your notes for future reference. When you return for therapy after a 6-month break or more, your personal details will be confirmed before we continue our new sessions together.
It is essential that you take good care of yourself between sessions whilst your body, mind and emotions begin to heal. This means being and patient and compassionate with yourself as therapy is a process and it takes time to heal old wounds
Talking about problems can bring them up to the surface and you may experience a wide range of emotions between sessions. Clients mostly feel relieved, but you may feel tired and a little vulnerable at times before you start to feel better.
All of the energy work that I do is designed to clear the energetic system of unwanted trauma, balance emotions and encourage the body to heal and balance itself. You may go through a detoxifying process after a treatment with me for up to 3 days and have a desire to rest and/or sleep. It is important to drink plenty of water after a treatment and avoid the consumption of alcohol and other toxins.
Generally, clients leave their sessions feeling more relaxed, calm and refreshed, with improved sleep and sense of overall well-being but if you have any worries or concerns then please contact me.
I am an accredited and registered Counsellor & Psychotherapist with the BACP with over 14 years experience of working with individuals, couples and therapeutic groups in a variety of settings.
If you would like more information about Supervision please do not hesitate to contact me.
