Confidentiality


  • Any personal information discussed or written during sessions will be treated with the strictest of confidentiality and your file will be kept in a secure filing cabinet.

  • Session notes are written to capture the issues discussed, new ideas that have been developing, and to record strategies that we have introduced to help.

  • My notes can only be discussed with a third party (e.g. School) if you give your written consent, unless they have been subpoenaed by the court. HOWEVER, If you have a referral from your doctor, psychiatrist, or pediatrician then i am required by Medicare to provide a letter after the first, sixth, tenth and/or final visit.

  • When information is given by one member of a family it will be kept confidential from other members of the family unless permission has been given to disclose the information.

  • If there are concerns about your own personal safety (If under the age of 18 years), or the safety of others including animals, then I am legally obliged to share these concerns with a third party such as the police or community services.


  • Cancellation Policy

    A minimum of 24 hrs notice is required when cancelling or rescheduling an appointment. This is to give someone who is on the waiting list a chance to take your spot. If an appointment is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice or is missed, you will attract a cancellation fee, which is 50% of the full scheduled fee.
