Terms and Conditions
The following are the Terms and Conditions (the "Agreement") which govern your access and use of our online platform through which counseling may be provided (collectively the "Platform"). This website is owned and operated by Theraply Pty Ltd. (“Company”, “us”, “our”, and “we”).
By accessing or using the Platform, you agree to comply with and to be bound by all of the terms and conditions described in these Terms. You should read this Agreement carefully before starting to use the Platform. If you do not agree to be bound to any term of this Agreement, do not access and/or use the Platform.
Counselors and Counselor Services
The Platform may be used to connect you with a Counselor (“Counselor”) who will provide services to you through the Platform or directly via third party platforms like WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom, etc. (“Counselor Services”).
Every Counselor providing Counselor Services on the Platform must be an accredited and experienced licensed psychologist (PhD/PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), licensed professional counselor (LPC), or similar recognized professional certification based on their state and/or jurisdiction. Counselors must have an academic degree and licenses in the relevant field. They must successfully complete the necessary education, exams, training and practice requirements, and have to be certified by their respective professional board.
The Platform’s role is limited to enabling the Counselor Services, while Counselors are independent providers who are neither our employees nor representatives. While we hope the Counselor Services will provide you with sufficient help, you must understand that they may not be suitable for everyone’s needs and that in some cases a face-to-face examination may be more relevant to help your cause. If you feel the Counselor Services provided by the Counselor do not fulfill your needs or expectations, you may choose a different Counselor through the Platform.
DO NOT RELY ON THIS SERVICE FOR EMERGENCY MEDICAL NEEDS. IF YOU EXPERIENCE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, CALL 000 IMMEDIATELY (IN AUSTRALIA).
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING SUICIDAL THOUGHTS OR IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING INJURING YOURSELF OR OTHERS OR IF YOU FEEL THAT ANY OTHER PERSON MAY BE IN ANY DANGER OR IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY CALL THE EMERGENCY SERVICE NUMBER AND NOTIFY THE RELEVANT AUTHORITIES. THE PLATFORM DOES NOT PROVIDE ASSISTANCE IN THE AFOREMENTIONED CASES AND THE COUNSELORS CANNOT RENDER AID IN THE AFOREMENTIONED CASES.
