Booking Your Counselling Session

  • Please send me a message, by clicking the Book 20 minute free consult button or using the Contact page.

  • We will schedule a free twenty minute consultation.

  • If you choose to book a session, we will also engage in a brief intake session, where I will ask you some preliminary questions.

  • I'll send you confirmation by email, a client intake form to fill in and a reminder 24 hours before your appointment.

Session Attendance

Counselling and psychotherapy are most effective when attended regularly, with time between used to integrate sessions. In your first session we will explore ways we might work together. If you choose to participate in ongoing sessions, we will book your follow up session at either weekly, fortnightly or

monthly interval.

Please be punctual and allow the scheduled duration of your appointment.

Rescheduling Appointments

If you need to reschedule, please give more than 24 hours’ notice so someone on the wait list can be offered an appointment.

Cancellations

I understand life can be demanding, however cancellations received with less than 24 hours notice or nonattendance will be charged the full fee. 

Alternative Arrangements 

If you are unable to attend your scheduled face-to-face session, I can offer you a telehealth appointment via telephone.

Please note, I will need to be notified at least two hours before your scheduled appointment to set up telehealth session for you.

Confidentiality

All interactions that take place in the setting of counselling/ the therapeutic space are considered confidential. This includes all session content records and any progress notes that I take during your sessions.

The only instance where I may need to talk to someone outside the service is if I have concerns for your safety or someone else’s safety. When possible, I will talk with you before doing this.

Additionally, in order to ensure that I am giving the best assistance possible, there may be times when I consult with my supervisor about your case, however, no personally identifiable information will be used.

Please let me know if you have any questions related to confidentiality.
