Terms of Agreement
The Clinical Process
Simon Good practices psychoanalytic psychotherapy which draws on theories and practices of analytical psychology and psychoanalysis. It is a therapeutic process which helps patients understand and resolve their problems by increasing awareness of their inner world and its influence over relationships both past and present. Individual therapy can be once, twice or three times weekly and is open ended. Appointments take place on a mutually agreed day and time each week and last for 50 minutes. Couple therapy is the same as above but is normally once a week. Sessions are not less than once weekly for either mode of therapy. As working towards an ending is an important part of the work it is helpful to discuss this first and allow a minimum of four weeks to the end of treatment.
Simon Good is registered to practice by the British Psychoanalytic Council and United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy practising by their Code of Ethics and maintains professional indemnity insurance.
Fees and Cancellation
Fees are based on income and whether the appointment time is off peak (start time from 10am until 5pm) or peak time, (starting before 10am and from 6pm onwards and any time on Saturdays).
