Frequently asked questions
What can I expect in the first session?
At the first session, I would like you to share your story so I can get a picture of what life is like for you and what you are hoping to get out of therapy sessions.
If you are unsure what you hope to achieve in these sessions, that’s okay. Many people feel anxious talking about their background. There may be topics that are difficult to raise, it can take a while to talk about deeply personal issues. We will go at your pace together.
Cancellation of Appointment
It is difficult to fill an appointment spot when cancellation occurs with less than 24 hours notice. Please allow more than 24 hours notice to cancel your appointment or full fee may be charged.
If you are unable to attend your session, call or SMS 0404 871 195 and your appointment can be rescheduled.
All sessions are strictly confidential. I will not share your information with others without prior permission from yourself, unless there is a danger of harm to yourself or others, or if a court of law requests your records.
