When you arrive for your appointment, let reception know you are here and sign in the Visitors' Book. I will come and collect you from the waiting room. I plan to run on time.
It is up to you who attends the appointments; some parents like to attend alone first to explain the situation privately, others come with their child, and young people may prefer to come alone. It is common to spend some of the session talking together and some separately.
Together we will aim to understand the situation that has brought you and find ways to relieve your distress.
I hold regular clinics at the Helios Trust and Medical Centre in North Bristol. The building contains the NHS GP Surgery but also the Helios Trust, home to many holistic therapies, and there is a beautiful garden. There is free parking and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Please note that I am not part of the GP practice although I practice from there.
Initial appointments with me are for 1 hour with subsequent appointments lasting up to 45 minutes. They can be booked through my secretary Lesley Gully on 01454 854492 or by emailing email@example.com. Lesley can answer any questions you have and will explain the current prices and terms and conditions.
Sign from the road:
17 Stoke Hill is set back from the road. There is a driveway with pillars, a sign to the Helios Medical Practice/GP Surgery and a large no. 17
the Bridge foundation for psychotherapy
I also work at the Bridge Foundation for Psychotherapy as part of that organisation (not this private practice), offering psychological interventions only.
