Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before using https://ensocounselling.com/. Your access to and use of this Website is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use this Website.

Nature of Counselling
There may be both benefits and risks while participating in counselling, whether online or in person. Counselling may improve your ability to relate with others, provide a clearer understanding of yourself, your values, and your goals. Counselling often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant improvement in feelings of distress. Since counselling may also involve discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, you may also experience uncomfortable feelings.
However, there are no guarantees of what you will experience, and you agree that you use Enso Counselling services at your own risk. You agree that you understand the possible advantages and disadvantages of therapy and shall not hold Enso Counselling accountable if the results of your therapy are different from what you expected.
All payments related to your session at our Enso Counselling must be made at the end of each session. You will be provided with a receipt as an acknowledgement of your payment, if you choose.
We require all by-phone and online counseling session fees to be paid in advance before counselling takes place. Services will only begin once your payment has cleared.
Schedule Changes and Cancellations
We set aside time for you for any scheduled appointments you make and thereby request that any notification of cancellation or any changes in schedule be given at least 24 hours before a scheduled appointment is set to take place. For all scheduling changes, we require a minimum notice of 24 hours.
Enso Counselling is dedicated to providing professional care of the highest standards and will do their best to serve you. However, if at any point in time your therapist finds that she is no longer able to continue being effective in helping you, she will make every possible effort to find an appropriate professional to refer you to.

Eligibility for Online Counselling
Online counseling services are not meant to take the place of direct, face-to-face counselling.
Online counselling services are most suitable if you are over the age of 18 years old and have either previously engaged in formal counselling services and/or are seeking short-term support for issues that are unrelated to major crises, severe mental health issues, suicidal, homicidal or violent behavior (past and present).
Online counselling services are intended for clients who have limited access, availability or financial means to receive direct, face-to-face professional counselling services.
Although online counselling services may be helpful, direct, face-to-face services are highly recommended and encouraged, especially if you are either looking for long-term treatment or are in major crisis.

- Have been diagnosed as any of the following – Borderline Personality Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder Type 1, Mentally Ill/Chemically Addicted (MICA), and/or Schizophrenia.
