If for any reason you are unable to attend your appointment, please let me know as soon as possible. The required notice for cancellation is at least 24 hours. Where there is less notice of cancellation or if you do not attend your appointment, you will be charged the full fee. In certain circumstances, the charging of the full fee can be waived at my discretion. With adequate advance notice, where possible, you will be offered an alternative appointment.
All information, whether verbal or written in notes, is treated as strictly private and confidential. I have a responsibility both to you as my client and to the community at large. Some moral and legal limitations therefore apply to confidentiality. These limitations mainly concern risk of serious self-harm, harm to others, and child protection issues. If a situation arises in which the moral or legal limits of confidentiality are exceeded, I will discuss this with you and explain the reasons at the time.
Most sessions will be held in Queenscliff on the Northern Beaches in Sydney, NSW.
Sometimes clients are not able to travel for an appointment. Home visits can be arranged but depending on location there could be an addition to the usual fee charged to cover the cost of travel time and mileage.
Additionally sessions are also available via Skype or Zoom to those unable to attend my practice in person or prefer working this way. Fee for Skype or Zoom sessions are lower and bookings more flexible. Please refer to this page about rates and specify your preference for Hypnotherapy via Skype or Zoom during initial communications.
A successful outcome depends in part on the collaboration between client and therapist; we will work together to ensure you are getting the most value out of each session. You will be expected to be open-minded to change, try out new things and occasionally step out of your comfort zone. Beside your engagement during the session, you will be required to commit to weekly homework tasks (these can involve a range of different exercises, from behavioural task to self-hypnosis). Great progress can be made during our sessions, but it is important that the topics we discuss and the interventions are put into practice between times.
My commitment towards you is that I am not only fully focused on you and your needs during our sessions, but also offer support for any issues or questions that may arise.

All payment is required in advance of the therapy session.
