  • To preserve your confidentiality, if we see each other out with the session, I will acknowledge you but not start a conversation unless you initiate it yourself.
  • Therapy can be demanding and emotional. If you struggle or feel unhappy with any aspects of the treatment, please try to communicate this to me so we can address the issues.
