What to expect
As an independent practice we are able to offer:
- No waiting lists
Flexible appointments to suit you
One-to-one therapy, adapting the style to best suit you and your child, but sometimes your child may benefit from group therapy and this can be arranged
You will always see the same therapist
We give you resources and activities to take home between sessions
- If your child is also seeing an NHS therapist, we liaise with them regularly to ensure joined-up working
All children will need an assessment session when a detailed case history of your child and any concerns that you have will be fully explored by either formal or informal assessment. At the end of the first session you will be given clear recommendations if any further assessment is required or direct therapy.
An assessment session normally lasts up to an hour and a written summary report along with advice and recommendations are included. If a more detailed report is required then an additional charge will be made, but this will be discussed with you.
Following assessment, if therapy is recommended, you do not have to take this up unless you choose to. Should you wish me to provide this however, there will not normally be a wait for therapy.
Depending on your child’s age or you’re your own preference we would be happy to see your child in our clinic, your home or at their school.
Our clinic is on a Thursday morning in Boroughbridge Therapy Centre. School or home therapy sessions are offered on a Thursday afternoon or Friday day time. We can also provide sessions at people's own homes, either in North Yorkshire or across Teesdale, Teesside or Durham.
When therapy is in your own home, as this is often convenient for families and enables me to see your child in a natural environment; families are asked to provide a quiet space for assessment, free from distractions (such as TV) as far as possible.
Therapy sessions are usually offered once a week for an agreed period of time and will usually last 45 minutes, including around 30 minutes of specific work with your child and 15 minutes reviewing progress and suggesting tasks to carry out over the following week. Occasionally, longer or shorter therapy sessions may be given, if this is thought to be the best for your child.
If therapy is preferred in school, your child’s school would have to be open to this and be able to provide a suitable space in which to work.
Mileage will be charged for home visits or school visits. Further details are available in the Our fees section.
