attendance policy

erin is committed to supporting your wellbeing and working with you to achieve your goals. in return, erin asks that all clients commit to consistently attending their appointments on time.

erin does understand that therapy can be challenging and that session avoidance or anxiety can be quite common for clients. if you feel that attending your appointments is becoming difficult for you, please contact erin so that any concerns or obstacles can be addressed.

if you arrive late for an appointment, your session time will end at the appointed time; and you will be charged the full session fee. this is to ensure that every clients appointment is respected by starting on-time.

to avoid a cancellation fee, please reschedule or cancel your appointment in writing (text, email or online) 48 hours prior to your session time. due to the demand for appointments and the loss of income for the psychologist, if you reschedule or cancel you appointment within 48 hours of your session time you will be charged the full session fee. this fee will need to be paid in full at your next appointment.

session etiquette

please note that Prana House is a Yoga & Wellness Studio that aims to create a tranquil and mindful for space for its community. as such, there is a no shoes policy once you have entered the studio, so feel free to bring some comfy socks along.
