Cancellation Policy

If the client is unable to attend, they need to give as much notice as possible.
Any sessions unattended, without notification will be charged at the full rate. If less than 8 hours notice is given, there may be a charge of half the usual rate, depending on the circumstances of the cancellation.

For clients who are referred under Family Court or the EAP scheme at their workplace, a missed session may be counted as one of the allocated sessions.

If clients have assistance through the Disability Allowance and weekly sessions they will need to make up the difference between the allowance and the cost for the session, or else have fortnightly sessions. If clients stop counselling before the contract is completed, it is their responsibility to notify WINZ. If the counselor is contacted by WINZ, only the dates of attendance at counselling sessions are disclosed.
