Terms and Conditions Summary
We always let you know how much a service will cost before confirming an appointment. We send you an invoice once the service has been completed and you have 14 days to pay. We send you a reminder if we do not receive a payment. The full fee is charged for appointments cancelled without notice, or when we are given less than 48 hours notice. Initial consultation fees are paid before we undertake any further assessment work, and finalised versions of reports are released when full payment is received.
48 hours notice is given to cancel or reschedule an appointment. This can through either texting or leaving a message on the clinic mobile telephone number or by emailing email@example.com. If you are running late, waiting charges apply and the agreed length of session remains the same.
Clients agree to:
complete and return intake records and assessments with full disclosure of information pertinent to the work and to let us know if services have been provided in the past or currently that may have a bearing on what we do (e.g., any previous assessments or diagnoses of pre-existing conditions)
arrive in good time for appointments and to let us know if any information shared should not be divulged in the report provided
not use or distribute reports or documents for anything other than the intended purpose(s).
It is essential that the person for whom the service is requested is aware of the work we are doing, and we do not withhold from them the outcome of any assessment.
