Website & Apps Terms & Conditions
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE AND/OR APPS.
The content of the pages of this website and/or apps is for your general information and use only. It is subject to change without notice. Please check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we made, as they are binding on you.
My Online Therapy (“MOT”) is an organisation that manages self-employed practitioners only and is not the provider of services to the client. The service provider shall at all times be the practitioner. All of our practitioners are self-employed and are regulated by their respective regulatory bodies. Each practitioner has their own set of terms and conditions, and any therapeutic contract will be formed between you and your chosen practitioner.
MOT provides the video conferencing platform and administrative services only. MOT will not accept liability for any loss or damage resulting from contact or work with the practitioner. Any complaint against the practitioner should be raised with the practitioner in the first instance and, if necessary, escalated to their respective member organisation.
www.myonlinetherapy.com and the My Online Therapy apps are operated by Lekta Therapy Ltd, Second Floor, 4-5 Gough Square, London, EC4A 3DE, United Kingdom.
The practitioners are all regulated by one or more of the following regulators:
- The British Psychological Society
- The General Medical Council
- The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
- The British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
- The Health and Care Professions Council
We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a virus, distributed denial-of-service attack, or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data or other proprietary material due to your use of our site and/or apps or to your downloading of any content on it, or on any website and/or app linked to it.
Payment for your sessions will be taken at the time of your booking. Please therefore have your credit card details at hand.
If any appointment is cancelled 48 hours or more before your session, we will refund the full amount paid. There is no refund for any appointment cancelled with less than 48 hours’ notice; this is also the case for any missed sessions. In exceptional circumstances a psychologist may have to cancel your appointment – if this occurs you will receive a full refund for that session. Please note that if you join any session under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or become abusive, insulting, disruptive or act in an unreasonable manner during the session the psychologist will be entitled to terminate the session and you will remain liable for the payment of the session.
Timing of Sessions
Sessions will last for either 30 minutes (initial) or 50 minutes (treatment). If for any reason you have not entered the virtual waiting room within 10 minutes of the start of a 30 minute session, or within 15 minutes of a 50 minute session, the session will automatically end and will be deemed as a missed session.
The fee for an initial consultation is £49 for 30 minutes. Ongoing sessions last 50 minutes and cost £99.
