Cancellation Policy

In order not to incur a chargeable fee for a session any cancellations require notification of at least two (2) business days (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm). Please be punctual for your appointments. Your booked session time is reserved for you. Any late arrival will not allow for readjustment of session time. Cancellation Policy does not apply to Term Enrolment non-attendance.

For Clients of Counsellors & Therapists

Please read this and be aware that there are limitations to this service, and, if you have an urgent matter to do with your mental health, risk of life or danger you should contact your local community mental health team, hospital or police service. If you require representation or advocacy please notify Acua for any support. Please complete the digital 'intake form'. 


Payments are by way of cash, credit card or bank direct deposit. Please note direct deposit payments must be confirmed prior to the session. In any direct deposit or bank transfer enter the last here digits of your invoice number. Confirmation of payment through direct deposit is to be emailed through to Acua prior to your session.


With ‘Term Enrolment’ the fee is for the entire term. A term enrolment is constructed of a number of elements and is purchased as one service. As the day and time is booked for a term and reserved for you or your child and cannot be offered to anyone else any non-attendance is still charged as the appointment is reserved specifically for you. Term Enrolments include a charge for nominated session times, administration (goal setting consultation), moderation and a report. Any non-attendance should first explore Telehealth as an alternative. Make up sessions are not available.

Emergency Planning

Acua operates as a team. In the event your therapist is sick, Acua will first attempt to provide an alternative therapist before cancelling a session. Acua will also explore remote/Zoom sessions or make up sessions. (Please note make up sessions are only considered if Acua has to cancel a session under a term enrolment when an alternative therapist is not available. It is dependent on calendar availability).
