It's different if you get there and they cancelled it, but saying the weather is too bad can cause them to put you back as they are worried the person will do it again. I know we can't control the weather but the place of appointment don't care even if your in hospital at the time, you miss an one session and they do what they want unfortunately and that goes for most businesses.
I usually stay in a hotel for at least one night to prevent that sort of thing happening. But considering the cost of doing so, it works out to an extremely expensive counselling appointment, which is what this one was for, and something I can't afford to do on a fortnightly basis. I had at least suggested that we discontinue further appointments, though I think it is a bit unreasonable to have a zero-tolerance policy towards their patients: as it was, I had one of my appointments at the GIC on the same day cancelled by them with less than 24 hours notice.
