Renfrew Psychotherapy

WHAT TO EXPECT AND HOW TO REACH ME

Appointment And Cost Information

Arranging

In order to set up the first free appointment, potential clients, including referrals, are requested to telephone the therapist at 613-635-2127 and leave a voice mail, or send a message (see adjacent column). Sending a message is the preferred way of initial contact.

Purpose 

The first consultation is free so that the process of psychotherapy and Jungian analysis can be explored, discussed, and discernment made regarding moving forward with a weekly analytical hour. This approach to therapy or spiritual direction may not be the best modality for a particular client. Thus the first session is also an opportunity to address questions regarding that, and to experience working in a Jungian setting.

Fee

The weekly fee for the analytic hour (50 minutes) is paid in cash or cheque at the beginning or end of each analytical hour. Arrangements can also be made to e-transfer the fee before the first session. A receipt is given at the end of each month, although other arrangements can also be made. At least three months notice will be given for an increase in the weekly fee.

Cancellations

24-hour notice (before the appointment time) is required for any appointment cancellations.  If adequate notice is not given, the client will be billed and expected to pay for the session.

Regarding inclement weather and hazardous driving conditions, phone sessions can be discussed and arranged. Similar arrangements for sudden or prolonged illnesses can also be discussed.

Consent

At the beginning of the first appointment, in order to proceed with psychotherapy, including the modalities of both Jungian analysis and spiritual direction, client information sheets and a consent form are reviewed, filled out, and signed.  This information is confidential, and will be kept as part of a client’s clinical record.
