The way in, is the way out


How we work

Working professionally and ethically, we aim to provide a quality service based on the following practice guidelines.


We work on different days and at various times throughout the week. We are available for some client work after hours although these appointment times are limited. Please contact us for further information.


All client work remains confidential. To ensure safety and professionalism we are committed to ongoing clinical supervision. In this case, where client material may be referred to, client identities are safeguarded and anonymity assured. The only exception to maintaining client confidentiality would arise should a client may be at risk of causing harm to themselves or others.

Fee Structure

Charges are time-based and calculated at $150 per hour (usual duration of a session) unless otherwise arranged. In some instances, a fixed one-off fee may apply such as in the case of behavioural assessment reports or specific contractual work. For further information contact us or phone us on +64 9 488 7647.

Code of Ethics

The Square Circle abides by the code of ethics as outlined by the Psychotherapists Board of Aotearoa New Zealand (PBANZ). See PBANZ. Link to

Sessions and Cancellation Policy

Individual sessions are generally one hour in duration and both client and therapist enter a commitment to meet each other at a regular time, usually on a weekly basis. In some cases sessions might be held twice weekly, and in others fortnightly or monthly depending on such factors as affordability, availability etc. This regular appointment time is then "owned" by the client. Our cancellation policy requires 24 hours’ notice be given otherwise a full fee will be charged for the missed session. Where possible, every effort will be made to reschedule missed appointments within the same week.
