FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG DOES EACH SESSION LAST?
Each session is allocated 50 min, with an initial consultation session lasting 60 min (this allows time to fill out appropriate forms.)
WILL THEY TRY AND DIAGNOSE ME?
Active Listening Therapists are not diagnosticians. The purpose of SALT is to provide an outlet in the form of complementary therapy. We are simply there to listen to you in a way that allows relief from what is on your mind.
WILL I BE FORCED TO TALK ABOUT THINGS I DO NOT WANT TO?
No. You will never be forced or pressured into talking about anything you do not want to. This time is for you.
IS WHAT I TALK ABOUT CONFIDENTIAL?
Yes. SALT follow strict guidelines to ensure your privacy. We are fully GDPR compliant and the contents of each session will not be shared unless permission is granted by the client. There are, however, a few exceptions to this rule on the grounds of safeguarding. These will be fully explained during your initial session.
Sometimes additional help or guidance from a health care professional is needed. Further information on this can be made available and discussed with you. We are also happy signposting to further services on request.
