I have been advised that I am free to terminate any or all sessions at any time. I have agreed to

participate in each session to the best of my ability. I have accurately provided background information as requested by my Practitioner.

I am aware and understand that my relationship with the Practitioner will be a professional therapeutic one. I understand that in public my Practitioner will follow my lead in relation to any acknowledgement/conversation regarding our relationship.
