Prior to your first session at Forest for the Trees Perinatal Psychology, Newcastle, we offer an initial free 10 minute phone consultation to make sure we’re the right fit for you. Should you decide to proceed, we will then send you written information relating to our privacy and confidentiality policies, as well as our current fees and cancellation policy.
Counselling session length and fees
Initial individual sessions are 60 mins in length, and all subsequent sessions are 50 mins. During the COVID-19 outbreak all our fees have been reduced, including temporary bulk-billing for all clients with a mental health care plan. Please see our COVID-19 update to read further about our current fee structure.
The first session
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are not currently conducting face-to-face appointments at our premises. Instead, for the time being, we are only offering videoconferencing or telephone appointments. We will be in touch via email or telephone to explain our current processes to you prior to your initial appointment.
Forest for the Trees Perinatal Psychology has a 24 hour cancellation policy. Should you need to cancel your appointment please contact us with at least 24 hours notice. We ask this so that we have sufficient notice to offer cancelled appointments to others who may be waiting to be seen and in need of care. If you cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours notice you will be charged a cancellation fee.
