INVOICE AND PAYMENT
Sessions are invoiced on a monthly basis with payment by bank transfer. The cost of counselling is a personal expense not covered by Swiss health insurance.
Sessions may be cancelled because of illness or unexpected events without charge up to 24 hours before the start of the session. Non-attended sessions or sessions cancelled after this 24 hour limit will be charged at the normal rate.
