All missed sessions with less than 24 hours notice are chargeable. If sessions are cancelled with less than 24 hours notice the full fee is still due.
To gain the most effective results from therapy appointments need consistent and regular attendance.
It is important that sessions are attended punctually because we are unable to extend your session time beyond your booked slot if you are late.
If you are 20 minutes late the session will be cancelled and all fees will be due.
If lateness is persistent and there is poor attendance it will have a detrimental effect on your progress and make our therapeutic relationship unworkable.
Remote clients by telephone or Zoom will be sent a payment link to pay by card, ApplePay etc or an invoice to pay by bank transfer if preferred. You will be asked how you wish to pay. Please note that any outstanding fees must be paid before the next session.
