The first contact will be with the parent or parents of the child/adolescent. This will enable me to learn about your child and give parents an opportunity to share their concerns. Please contact Sarah at Sarah@akidspace.co.uk who will make a date and appointment time with yourselves and Emma. The cost for this will be the same price as an individual session.
Therapy is most effective when a trusting relationship exists between the therapist and the child/adolescent. Privacy is especially important in securing and maintaining that trust. One goal of treatment is to promote a stronger and better relationship between children/adolescents and their parents. However, it is often necessary for children/adolescents to develop a “zone of privacy” whereby they feel free to discuss personal matters with greater freedom. This is particularly true for adolescents who are naturally developing a greater sense of independence and autonomy.
During – You are welcome to sit in your car or leave and return within 50 minutes while your child/adolescent is in a session.
After – It is beneficial to allow your child/adolescent to tell you about the session without feeling pressurised to do so.
As part of my professional accreditation and ethical good practice I have a duty to pass on any concerns regarding Child Protection and Safeguarding.
Fees: To be paid in advance or after each session.
I require 24 hours cancellation notice period or charges will still apply.
