Online Bookings

We ask that you sign into Therapy and Group Support sessions a few minutes prior to the session start time to ensure your camera and audio are in working condition. If you have not signed in after 15 minutes after the session start time, this will be understood as a "no show" and you will be charged the full rate of the therapy session.

If the Online booking is paid by debit or credit card, you authorize OMC to debit the card provided by you without notice to you. Authorized debits include, but are not limited to, all late cancelled or no-show sessions. You can also save your card to your client portal account and pay online for greater convenience.

Third-party Links

To provide increased value to our clients, we may provide links to other websites or resources for you to access at your sole discretion. You acknowledge and agree that, as you have chosen to enter the linked website we are not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and do not review or endorse and are not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for (i) the privacy practices of such websites, (ii) the content of such websites, including (without limitation) any advertising, content, products, goods or other materials or services on or available from such websites or resources or (iii) the use to which others make of these websites or resources, nor for any damage, loss or offence caused or alleged to be caused by, or in connection with, the use of or reliance on any such advertising, content, products, goods or other materials or services available on such external websites or resources.

Cancellation Policy

Therapy Sessions and Group Support Classes

Late cancellations (within 48 hours of the start of the session). We understand that cancellations are sometimes unavoidable – but cancelling late or not attending at all often stops other clients from booking appointments and attending group support classes.


If you cancel a therapy session or group support class booking within 48 hours of the session start time, you will be charged the full session or support group fee. The reason for this policy is to allow other clients an opportunity to book an appointment for the time slot or attend the Group Support class.

For therapy session clients with multiple no-show appointments, every attempt will be made to understand your challenges and to work with your schedule, where possible. If we are not able to accommodate, we will discuss therapy options better suited to your needs, up to and including termination, if determined appropriate. 

Workshops, Consultations & Speaking Engagements

Own My Canvas requires a payment deposit of 50% of the total payment cost. Payment deposits for proposal services are non-refundable. The remaining 50%  plus any additional program fees, as communicated and agreed to in writing by both parties, are to be paid no later than 30 days of the delivery of the event and/or service. 

The price quoted for service is fixed, unless both parties agree to any changes in writing. This means that the agreed upon cost of the service will not change for any circumstance unless there is mutual agreement between us and the client. You can rest assured that any changes to the price will be agreed upon in a transparent and mutually beneficial way.

The contract may be cancelled up to 14 days prior to the event. After which, the full contract cost is required whether or not the event or services are delivered. We will not be responsible for any additional expenses which you or your member clients may have incurred in respect of the workshop, including travel, accommodation or exchange rate losses.

In the event that a Workshop, Consultation & Speaking Engagement is cancelled by Own My Canvas you will be issued a full refund. Please allow 5-10 business days for the refund to arrive in the bank account you paid with. We do not give cash refunds under any circumstances.


We reserve the right to cancel a workshop for any reason. Whilst we would only do this in exceptional circumstances and that it means we are unable to offer the workshop as advertised, or if there are insufficient numbers booked into the workshop to make it viable for taking the workshop. Should this happen, we will notify you as soon as we have knowledge of the cancellation. We will not be responsible for any additional expenses which you or your member clients may have incurred in respect of the workshop, including travel, accommodation or exchange rate losses. Refunds are not made retrospectively.

We reserve the right to add additional terms and conditions not stated and as agreed between the parties to the service contract.

Online Etiquette & Safety

Counselling and therapy online is a very different format than in-person, and it’s important you understand these differences. Separate agreements for Information to Consent to Services, Confidentiality and Privacy will be discussed and agreed to prior to commencing counselling and therapy services online. 

You understand that all decisions are of your own making and that any injury, harm, mental or physical, is thereby of your own creation and Own My Canvas nor the Therapist is responsible and thus you waive any rights to pursue legal action against them.

You also acknowledge that the session you’ve booked is for you and you alone, where applicable. By booking through our online system, you were asked that you’ve read these Terms & Conditions and that you explicitly agreed to them.
