Appointments with Jasmine
For outpatients these take place in the consulting rooms at 22 Bath Rd. Currently outpatient appointments take place usually on a Monday morning although this does vary at times.
An initial appointment will take between 45 minutes and an hour. Follow up appointments last 20-30 minutes. Whilst many people will be seen for an initial session and usually 1-2 follow up appointments, sometimes a longer series of appointments are beneficial where change happens more slowly. For those with insurance cover this should cover the initial session and some follow up. Do check the exact details with the insurance company however as they do vary widely.
Inpatients will normally be seen in their rooms and relevant family members are welcome to be present at the session.
