what is a THERAPY Agreement?

A therapy agreement is usually drawn up within the first couple of sessions. It sets out our goals and how we plan to go about achieving them. We might consider the types of appointments we intend to have, also how we will contact each other, should this be appropriate outside of sessions (e.g. to share and discuss homework tasks). It will also cover practical arrangements such as what happens should a sessions be missed or cancelled and any other points which you think would be useful to capture in our agreement together.  The purpose of this document is to ensure that both of us feel confident in our plan to go forward in our work together.
