Services & Confidentiality Contracts

Therapeutic Services Agreement

At Nursing Essentially, we require clients who engage therapy to sign a Therapeutic Services Agreement. This document available for download here provides all information about what to expect during these session, prices, insurance details and at the end, requeires you to provide information about yourself, what you would like to achieve during therapy in addition to certain waivers of liability – particularly when engaging in Animal Assisted Therapy. This is also why a Confidentiality Agreement is also required which also ensure confidentiality is maintained (see below). This Agreement will be emailed to you prior to commencing any session with Nursing Essentially.
