  1. Cancellation and Rescheduling:
  1. Notice Period: We require a minimum notice period of 48 hours before the starting time of the session for any cancellation or rescheduling requests. This allows us sufficient time to adjust our schedule and offer the available session slot to another client in need.
  2. Notification Method: All cancellation or rescheduling requests must be communicated through email. It is important to provide your full name, appointment date, and time when making the request.
  3. Rescheduling Request: In case of a request for rescheduling a session the client will be allotted a new slot based on the availability of the therapists. 

2.   Late Cancellations/rescheduling, No-Shows and Refund Policy:

Late cancellations/rescheduling and no-shows may incur a fee for each occurrence. This fee is intended to compensate for the reserved time slot that could have been allocated to another client.

Cancellation or rescheduling will be eligible for refund/credit based on the time of the request raised by the clients. The following table elaborates our refund policy.

5.  Amendments to the Cancellation Policy

We reserve the right to modify or update this Cancellation Policy at any time. Any changes will be communicated to you through the preferred communication method provided during registration or booking.


I understand that tele-psychotherapy services are by appointment only and that these consultations are not suitable for help during a crisis or emergencies (suicidal tendencies). 

I understand that the psychotherapist contacted during a set appointment would evaluate my need and context and guide me about the most suitable option for psychological intervention in that context (telepsychotherapy/ in-person psychotherapy/ crisis intervention/ emergency services).

I understand that the psychotherapist would use their professional discretion to provide required recommendations about the type of professional service that may be required at any given point of time. 

At the same time, I agree to not hold my child’s psychotherapist responsible, should any adverse events, such as lack of improvement, deterioration or situations of potential risk of harm to self or others, occur during video/ audio consultation. I understand that in such situations I may be advised to obtain treatment for my child at the nearest available mental health or emergency service.
