What happens if you don’t like your therapist (or they don’t feel best equipped to help you)?

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, you or the therapist may find that you are not a good fit. If your therapist feels that he or she is not best suited to you, he/she will discuss this with you and recommend a more appropriate therapist. We will then offer you a discounted first session with a new, more appropriate therapist at Kids Matters. 

If you feel that your therapist is not a good fit within the first three sessions, simply discuss this with our admin team who will find a more suitable therapist. We will then offer you 50% off your first consultation with the new therapist.
