Because of the requirements of the different professional associations which hold our accreditation, the CrossRoads Group does not combine Traditional "talk" Therapy and Wholistic Health Care. It is important that, as a client, you clarify your needs clearly to your therapist during the initial clinical evaluation/assessment and interview so that a non-conflicting treatment protocol, that meets your needs, can be developed.
The CrossRoads Group places a very high priority on the confidentiality of the information shared by the client to their therapists. CrossRoads makes the security of all notes, records, psychological assessments and other confidential information a major priority. While a client's personal information may be entered into their file in a written form, every effort is made to avoid the entry of sensitive material that may be shared by clients to their therapist. We believe that it is important for you as a client to know that the only individuals with access to files are those who are directly involved in providing the therapy. Every therapist involved is aware of the strict confidential nature of client information. Consultation and supervision by the therapy staff is carried out with complete confidentiality and respect during structured consultation colloquium's. Persons from outside the CrossRoads Group are not allowed access to any client files, nor to the information that is recorded, nor to the fact that a person is involved in therapy.
This contract of confidentiality is between the client and the CrossRoads Group. Written permission by the client or a court order is required to release any client information to anyone other than to the client themselves.
Please note these exceptions to confidentiality: A client's right to confidentiality and privacy is not absolute, in the following cases The CrossRoads Counselling Group, it's staff and therapists, disclaims all responsibility for any liability, loss or risk, personal or otherwise, which is incurred as a consequence, directly or indirectly by a client.
- We are compelled by law to report any circumstances where there is the possibility of danger to others or a client.
- We are also compelled by law to report any possibility of the existence of child neglect or abuse.
- Nonpayment of fees will waive a client's rights to confidentiality with regards to attendance, because of litigation or the use of collection agencies.
- An order from the courts to provided information in a client's file.
Limitations and Liability
Hypnosis cannot, and should not, stand alone as the sole medical or psychological intervention for any disorder. Hypnosis should not be used instead of appropriate medical, dental, or psychological treatment, and any individual with a medical or psychological problem should first consult a qualified health care provider for diagnosis and professional advice. Hypnosis should only be practiced by those who have been appropriately trained, who practice appropriately, and within the scope of their training. Hypnosis is not a magic bullet, it requires motivation, willingness and belief by the client to be effective.
Your Choice, Your Responsibility: While, during the session, we will offer you suggestions and other ways of looking at your issues and different solutions for your consideration, you hereby agree that whatever we discuss is only our perspective and is not binding upon you, nor is it a prescription or medical advice or diagnosis. If you want to discuss our suggestions with someone else, you should discuss them with a licensed health care provider. It is your responsibility to confirm whether or not the suggestion we make or the treatment protocol produced the desired result. It is your responsibility to communicate your results to us. Our liability is limited to the amount paid for the therapy.
When considering Distance Support Studies show that distance support can be helpful and effective. However, you understand, results cannot be guaranteed. Support via distance can assist you to better understand yourself, give you insight to address issues you encounter, reduce stress and generally give you a greater sense of direction for you life's journey. It is your responsibility to confirm whether or not the treatment protocol produced the desired result. It is your responsibility to communicate your results to us. Our liability is limited to the amount paid for the therapy.

A mixed methods study of online emotional support, 2012”. Alternatively, you may also access Derek Richard’s “Features and Benefits of Online Counselling at University Trinity College Online Mental Health Community, 2009” online.)
When considering Wholistic Therapies it is important to know that somatic engagement (bodywork: i.e., Reiki, Acupressure/massage. Somatic Release etc.) is not for everyone. Our culture has ingrained taboos about our bodies being seen and physically engaged by another person. Because of the intimate nature of somatic engagement it is important that you discuss the appropriate level of physical contact for yourself and any restrictions or concerns you have about your body and your physical condition. It is your responsibility to confirm whether or not the treatment protocol produced the desired result. It is your responsibility to communicate your results to us. Our liability is limited to the amount paid for the therapy.
Because we are semi-retired, we work on a Donation Only basis and often "Pro bono publico" - However, there are specific guides which we follow for new clients - please contact us to discuss your needs and reasons for support to determine if we can support your journey.
Pro bono publico (English: for the public good; usually shortened to pro bono) is a Latin phrase for professional work undertaken voluntarily and without payment or at a reduced fee as a public service.
We reserve the right to change the fee structure, content of the training, and therapeutic protocols without notice.
