Payment to secure your booking
We ask you to pre-pay your appointment using electronic funds transfer (EFT) through your bank. This allows you to secure your preferred dates and times. Please allow at least 3 days for your bank clearances. Once your payment is received a confirmation email will be sent to you. Having pre-paid for your session means that we will be able to utilise the full 50 minutes without allowing for administrative time to collect funds on the day.
After having met with your counsellor and agreed to the number of sessions you would like to attend, frequency and your goals you may like to pre-pay a number of sessions to secure a regular date and time of your preference. Days and times are limited currently to a Monday & Tuesday in South Fremantle. Mornings are available in Claremont rooms.
If you are eligible for a Medicare rebate you then claim the rebate from those services yourself, online or by attending a Medicare office in person .
Cancellation or Non – Attendance Fee
We request at minimum 24 hours notice if you wish to reschedule or cancel your appointment to avoid paying for the session. If we receive less than 24 hours notice you will also be charged if you fail to attend the appointment.
