Appointments cancelled or rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice and appointments not attended by the client may attract a fee.
Without at least 24 hours notice of non-attendance your counsellor cannot use the time scheduled for another client and yet must still pay for the use of the consulting room. As a result, you may be billed a nominal amount for such an appointment.
The current no-show or late cancellation/reschedule fee is $35.00 If your no-show or late cancellation/reschedule with less than 24 hours’ notice is the result of an unforeseen emergency or illness you may request that this fee be waived.
