_________________________________________________________________________

 

Additional terms of use that apply to the Online

Therapy and NLP Coaching ‘live’ service

The following additional terms are only relevant and applicable

where You choose to access Live (email, telephone, skype, live chat)

 

Therapy and Coaching.

 

Consent by Members to use the LiveTherapy services

The Client will be required to confirm that they have considered

and accepted these terms before the first LiveTherapy consultation.

The Client is encouraged to seek clarification on any of the following

terms that they are unclear about.

 

Duty of confidentiality

 

All therapy and coaching that are accessed via Psychologist Farnham

is under a strict duty of confidentiality to clients that the Psychologist

works with. This duty is the same as would be expected between a

clinician and a patient relationship in an NHS or private setting. This

duty does not provide for absolute confidentiality if the Psychologist

considers the client to be a risk to themselves and or others. In

addition, part of the quality of the service offered by Psychologist

Farnham is that the Psychologist is supervised by experienced

professionals. That supervision and support of the Psychologist will

involve discussing certain details of the material from sessions with

clients to ensure the provision of a quality service.

Anonymity in the therapy setting

Private clients: private clients accessing LiveTherapy services via

Psychologist Farnham can determine at initial consultation how

much information about their ‘real’ identity they wish to share. The

Client can agree with the Psychologist that they be referred to just by

their username.

 

Sharing information with your Psychologist

 

Your Psychologist will only be able to assist you with those issues

that You choose to share in the therapy session, however, the

Psychologist cannot take any responsibility for alleged failure to take

action on information that You have not provided.

 

Contact arrangements for the Psychologist

 

The client can contact the Psychologist via the email or telephone

from the details on the Contact page of the Site. The Client will not

be given access to any personal contact details of the Psychologist.

Should telephone contact be part of the therapy arrangement, this

would be negotiated between You and the Psychologist.

 

Risk or crisis situations

 

If the Psychologist identifies a real or perceived emergency situation

in the course of a therapy session where the client or another person

is identified (in the Psychologist’s opinion) as being at risk of harm

then the Psychologist will take steps that believed to be reasonable

to reduce the risk of harm. Due to the nature of the service (a remote

service with limited access to the real identity of the Client) this will

be usually limited to:

personal details (name, date of birth, address, telephone

number) so that contact with local emergency services can be

made for assistance.

i) Asking the Client if they are willing to provide

location where they are who could be summoned for support.

be facilitated.

ii) Asking the Client if there is another adult in the

iii) Requesting GP details so that continuity of care can

iv) In extreme circumstances calling the police or other

emergency services for assistance.

 

Assistance will be limited to what can reasonably be offered from a

remote connection and whilst the Psychologist will operate in good

faith to do what they can to improve the situation, the Psychologist

cannot accept any responsibility for any harm that may follow.

 

Record keeping of therapy sessions

 

The Psychologist will keep short narrative factual records of each

therapy session. These notes will be stored online on a secure

server. The notes will be stored using the Client’s user name or name

they would wish to be referred to, as the identifier.

The purpose of the record is to act as an aide memoire of the key

points of the session and to assist the preparation of update reports

for those that have referrers. It will not be a narrative account of the

full session.

 

Clients will have the opportunity to add their own comments to

the session record but not to request a change of the Psychologist’s

record. However any factual errors in the Psychologist’s record can

be noted by the Client in the record they make. The Psychologist is

informed of obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998, Access

to Medical Reports Act 1988 and any other applicable data protection

legislation.

 

Fee arrangements

 

You agree that you will pay your fees 48 hours prior to your online

coaching or therapy appointment, at the rate as set out on the

Website at the time.

 

In the event that a session fails due to technical issues created by

or in the control of the Psychologist then the session fee will be

refunded or a further session will be booked at no charge.

In the event that a session fails due to technical issues outside the

control of the Psychologist (eg as a result of failure of IT /broadband

connection for the Client) then no refund will be payable.

The Psychologist cannot accept any liability to the client in respect

of any LiveTherapy session save as expressly set out in this fee

arrangements clause above.

 

Cancellations

 

If a session is cancelled by the member up to 48 hours before the

time the session is due to start (GMT), it will not be charged for. If the

session is cancelled with less than 48 hours notice, half of the session

fee will be paid by the Client. If the Client does not attend the session,

the full session fee will be charged.

 

You are able to make 2 cancellations without incurring a charge at

less than 48 hours’ notice.

 

Additional cancellations will incur an administrative fee which is half

of the session fee, regardless of notice given.
