Terms and conditions

Bookings, Confirmations and Cancellations

No cancellations or changes allowed within 24 hours of the appointment. Changes to Appointments are sometimes unavoidable and completely understandable. We only ask that you give us at least 24 hrs notice of any intention to cancel or change your appointment, so that we can offer that space to someone else that may be in need or on a waiting list.

  • A 50% fee applies for any cancellation after the 24hr period.
  • A 100% fee applies for any no shows or for people that don’t cancel and don’t show.
  • We consider 2 hrs notice a no show.

Please note that the session will not be extended by no shows, late arrivals or technical issues. Sessions will be cancelled after 10 minutes of no show or technical issues.

Bookings for group therapy or courses can be made online through the corresponding course registration webpage. Payment of the full course is required to secure your place.

For individual psychological sessions, a minimum of 24 hours notice is required to cancel appointments to avoid cancellation fees. Our cancellation fees, inclusive of GST, are as follows:

  • 24 + hours notice: No Fee
  • 0 – 24 hours notice: $80
  • No show: Full Fee.

Cancellation of group therapy or group courses with more than 7 days notice will incur in a $50 fee. Cancellations made with less than 7 days notice are not refunded.

Mental Awakening reserves the right to modify, suspend or cancel group therapy sessions and courses without notice. Under these circumstances, clients are entitled to request a refund or to re-schedule the course in question.
