The start of your journey…….
Each therapy session is an hour-long, and is a dialogue between therapist and client. Therapist and client will agree shared goals for the therapy, though these may change as therapy progresses.
It is hugely important that there be a good “fit” between therapist and client, for the therapeutic relationship to work. All clients will receive an initial consultation in which they have the opportunity to meet me in person, or during a client-session via Zoom, to discuss what it is they hope to gain from therapy / what it is that has brought them to therapy. The aim of this meeting is for the client to gain a clearer picture of whether this particular therapist-client relationship is one that may work for them.

Clients can book appointments on a week-to-week basis, provided I have one available. However, it is recommended that following the initial consultation, the client commits to a minimum of six to eight sessions, in order for them to have an opportunity to develop a relationship with me, and I with them. This is the most reliable way to achieve positive results. Following these sessions, the client is invited to review the therapist-client relationship, in order to decide whether to continue on.
There is no maximum number of therapy sessions per client; some clients merely want to attend for a small number of sessions; others may attend therapy for months or years. This is always based on what the client is gaining from the experience.
Each therapy session (of one-hour duration) is €50, payable at the end of each session. Clients who do not attend to a booked appointment, or who do not cancel with sufficient prior notice, will still be charged.
All contact with Heart 2 Heart Therapy is treated with the utmost of confidentiality. Any and all limits to confidentiality will be discussed with the client on the initial consultation, as well as being attended to on an ongoing basis. No reporting of limited confidentiality will take place without the prior knowledge of the client.
