Terms and conditions
Talk Therapy is not a crisis service and is not a monitored service. In an emergency situation, please call 111 in New Zealand (or your local emergency service number). If you are thinking about suicide, considering harming yourself or others, feel that you or any other person may be in any danger or have any medical emergency, you must immediately call the emergency service number and notify the relevant authorities. Seek immediate in person assistance.
By using the Talk Therapy website and online therapy tool these T&Cs automatically apply to you - so we recommend reading them carefully before using the site and online counselling services. If you don't agree with these terms, please don't use this site or our online counselling services.
