Booking a Session
Sessions are arranged by using our online booking system. Clients under 18 must be escorted by a family guardian.
Please note that your session may start a little later than the time booked. We aim to see all clients within 15 minutes of their booked times.
30 minute bookings are £40. 1 hour bookings are £60. Please note for in-person 1 hour sessions £20 is paid online when making a booking and £40 is paid in cash at the session. In case of a no-show, or cancellation outside of the grace period, the outstanding amount for the session will be charged.
Cancellations made 24 hours in advance of the session will be issued a refund on their deposit within 14 working days. You may cancel by phone or by clicking cancel on the booking confirmation email. Cancellations made within 24 hours of the session will not be issued a refund on their deposit.
Your Personal Information
New patients will be registered to the centre. All personal information will be kept confidential.
Advice & Consultation Session
At your first appointment, you’ll be encouraged to talk through what’s happening, and what you’d like to change with the advisor, who’ll listen and support you.
The advisor will help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and situation, and you will work with him to find solutions to problems.
You may be offered a single session or a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months. Please note sessions may be paused for Salah breaks.
It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress, but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your advisor.
Lastly, our advisors are always prepared to utilise the full length of the allocated time. If, after the primary discussion where the issue was addressed, there is time remaining then clients will be given the opportunity to seek additional advice. Otherwise, the session may end early.
