Cherished Minds is a Private Psychology Clinic and as such we unfortunately do not offer bulk billing services.
We, like many professional services, have a cancellation policy that reflects the time that a clinician sets aside for your appointment. We also generally run waiting lists, so if we are given reasonable notice then we can offer another client a time that is suitable.
Therefore, full fee of the pre-scheduled service is charged for sessions that are cancelled less than/within one business day (24 hours) prior to the scheduled appointment time and where the Client Fails to attend their pre-scheduled appointment without notice. Consultations cancelled within 48hrs notice of the prescheduled appointment will be charged 50% of the prescheduled appointment fee. The cancellation policy is strictly adhered to and applies to all reasons for session cancellation including ill health unless a doctors certificate is provided.
