The fee for one hour session is AUD$100. Make an Appointment
To make an appointment at Chatswood or Skype call me on 0410 606 427 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The address at Chatswood is Level 1, corner Victoria Avenue and Penshurst Street. There is a security code for the front door which I'll give you prior to the first appointment.
Please feel free to email me any questions or request further information. I will get back to you either by email or mobile as quickly as possible.
You can make payments with your credit card through Paypal which is a secure site. I will email you an invoice and by clicking on the pay now button you will automatically be connected to Paypal to make your payment. It's quick and easy and you don't need a Paypal account. Or, you can make an EFT payment into a bank account (and I will give you the bank account details upon request). Payments are made in Australian dollars. For online counselling, once payment has been made an email will be sent to you to confirm that payment has gone through successfully.
Please note that payment for online sessions is required before each session. If payment is not received then the session will need to be rescheduled. For sessions at Chatswood payment is made at the end of each session and can be paid in cash, credit card through Paypal or EFT.
An informed consent briefly explains the counselling process, fees payable, confidentiality, and so. By signing the informed consent you are agreeing to attend counselling and that you understand what counselling entails, your responsibilities as a client and my responsibilities as counsellor/therapist. An informed consent does not obligate you to begin or to continue counselling sessions with me.
Face-to-face: You will be given an informed consent form to read and sign at the first session.
Skype: After making an appointment and before attending the first session I will email you an informed consent to sign and return by email.
If you have any questions or concerns about the informed consent please feel free to ask me.
Cancellation of Session
If you need to cancel a session, please give 24 hours notice. If less than 24 hours notice an invoice for 50% of the session fee will be charged.
