Cancellations can be made by email or phone no later than 24 hours prior to the session. No attendance and or cancellations within 24hrs incur a cancellation fee.

Privacy.

Therapy is a confidential and safe space, Heidi's commitment to the privacy of information is governed by her personal ethics and by professional guidelines 

as a professionally-accredited social worker.

Heidi has a responsibility to maintain confidentiality and respect in regards to your information shared with her.

 

Its a common question and its important for you to know that what you say and share with Heidi in session is private and confidential and remains in the safety of that session.

The only reason the above would not be adhered to and that confidentiality may be overridden is where there is an immediate or prospective risk of harm to yourself or another, or if a court issued Heidi with a subpoena for release of information.
