Effectiveness of Treatment
Bedfordshire Therapies does not guarentee the effectiveness of treatment in individual cases. In life there is not a one fix, fixes all solution and this is true in the case of mental health. The treatments on offer from Bedfordshire Therapies are not a magic pill and it takes effort from both Tim, and you the client, to hopefully get the required results.
Tim is not trained in dealing with anyone that has been diagnosed with psychosis. This question would be asked in the intial consultation and it is imperative that it is answered truthly by the client
Tim has the right to refuse treatment to anyone that he feels he is unable help. This may be because he feels there ‘may’ be and underlying non diagnosed Psychosis or simply, he feels the rapport needed between himself and the client isn’t where it needs to be to have a successful therapy. In the rare instances where Tim will not take on a client he will either refer the client back to their GP or find an alternative Therapist to refer on to.
Tim will provide an estimate number of sessions required for therapy. This will only be an estimate as each client will vary. Both Tim and the client will jointly review progress when required.
