Therapy is an individual endeavor and therefore we attempt to be as flexible as possible to meet your individual needs. There is no minimum or maximum number of sessions that people can be seen for. Most therapies range from 8-12 sessions, however sometimes up to 20 sessions or more are required. Brief contracts (1-4 sessions) are offered if a psychological assessment and understanding are all that is required.
Appointment times are available in the daytime, evening and occasionally at weekends if needed. Therapy sessions generally occur weekly or fortnightly.
The cost of therapy sessions will depend on the treatment requirements, so please contact us for more information. Hazel is registered with most private health care insurance companies so if you have insurance please do check with your provider that they cover you for mental health care.
A minimum of 24 hours notice for the cancellation of a session is required. Unfortunately, sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be subject to the full session cost.
Therapy needs to feel safe in order to be effective. All sessions and phone calls are therefore treated with the utmost discretion and your privacy and confidentiality are a priority. Your GP or any other involved professionals will not be contacted, unless you specifically request us to do so or if a significant risk issue is identified.
