OUT OF HOURS SUPPORT

Billows Psychology is a private provider of psychology services. Therapy is provided via prearranged, scheduled appointments. While we do our best to meet support needs, there is limited availability for contact outside of schedule appointments.  We may not have an opportunity to respond to between session contact prior to your next appointment so this should not be relied upon for emergency matters. 

Billows Psychology is not an emergency service. We are not able to respond to urgent or emergency matters and our communication channels (Phone, SMS, Fax, Email) are not monitored outside of standard business hours. 


For urgent concerns relating to mental health or other emergencies please contact the appropriate emergency service. Some available services are listed below for your convenience.
