In cases where parents are separated or divorced, court rulings regarding custody or guardianship may limit the rights of one parent to take a child to see a counsellor without the consent of the other.
In completing this referral, you are agreeing that you either have the agreement of the other parent to bring your child to therapy or that you have the legal right to bring your child for therapy without the other parent’s consent.
● We will not put the child(ren) in positions where they feel they have to speak out against one of their caregivers.
● We do not provide assessments for Family Court
● We will not provide letters that are critical of the other caregiver’s parenting.
