I understand that things come up and you may occasionally need to cancel or

A cancellation fee of 100% applies if the appointment is cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice (business days). Weekends and public holidays do not count as business days, (i.e., Monday appointments need to be cancelled on a Friday to avoid a cancellation fee).

  • Victims Services will pay for up to two missed appointments per client, on each of the clients’ counselling claims.

  • Missed appointments are defined as appointments where the client did not attend and did not provide more than one business days’ notice. Victims Services will not pay for an appointment where the client has given more than one business days’ notice of the cancellation.

Clients are able to reschedule their appointment up to 24 hours before their scheduled time via www.seenfeltheardcounselling.com/book-online. If an unexpected event occurs on the day of their appointment which means they can no longer attend, they need to advise of their inability to make their appointment and request a new time by emailing hello@seenfeltheardcounselling.com or call 0493 426 412.

 

Note: there may be occasions, due to scheduling conflicts, when I need to arrange an alternative time for your appointment slot. I will contact you to arrange a suitable time, should this be necessary.

 

Contact outside sessions

It’s best for us to deal with all matters related to our work together in our sessions. I ask that you bring anything you want to discuss to our sessions and avoid sharing things that happened or feelings via text or email. If you need to get in touch with me outside of hours to cancel or change and appointment or for any other admin matters, you can contact me by phone, regular text message or email.

Privacy and Confidentiality

Counselling Sessions are confidential, and I will not divulge any information about you to anyone without your permission.

 

There are limitations to confidentiality that apply to exceptional circumstances:

  1. If you tell me and/or I have reasons to believe that you are likely to hurt yourself or others it is both my duty of care and a legal obligation to call a relevant service that may intervene and assist you in order to protect you and/or others.

  2. If I am required by law to disclose information about you and/or our interactions.

  3. I attend regular clinical supervision as part of my professional development and to meet the standards of my association. I may discuss our work together in that context. This is to ensure that the quality of my work is of high standards.
