Fees & Funding
To help you decide whether I am the right service for you or your child you are welcome to book an initial telephone consultation, during which I am happy to address any questions you may have. This is free of charge.
Individual assessment and therapy sessions are charged at £100, each appointment lasting up to 50 minutes. Therapy sessions may also be available online or via telephone, please contact me for further details.
Couples counselling / family sessions may be charged at a higher rate, where longer appointments may be required.
There are a number of different ways to cover the cost of your therapy sessions, including:
Private Healthcare Insurance
There are an increasing number of health insurance policies that will support you in undertaking a programme of psychological therapy, and we welcome clients who wish to arrange treatment with us in this way. I am registered with all the major healthcare insurance companies, including BUPA, AXA PPP, Aviva, Vitality Health, WPA and Cigna.
Prior to arranging an appointment with me, I may ask that you contact your health insurance company to confirm that your policy covers mental health, and check their valid form of referral for therapy (this is typically referral from a GP). In addition it is important to establish the limits of funding that your health insurance policy will provide.
Once you have obtained the appropriate referral, please contact me with your pre-authorisation number from your insurance provider. I will then often be able to handle all the billing and administration directly with the insurance company.
Please note that I operate a 48-hour cancellation policy otherwise full fees will apply. If you do not attend your session or give less than 48 hours notice to cancel or reschedule, you will be liable for the full cost of the session.
You may choose to pay for treatment through a self-pay package, and this can provide a number of benefits over other options.
Although you may have been referred to us by your GP, you do not need a referral to use my services and as such appointments can be made without delay. Similarly, there is no need to consult with insurance companies and agree treatment plans prior to meeting with me, and therefore you will gain more control over your treatment.
If you are paying for your own treatment, I know it is important to know the specific costs, and these are outlined above. However, if this is not clear or you have any questions please feel free to call me to discuss.
Fees can be paid in cash or via direct Bank Transfer (please ask me for details). Please note that I operate a 48-hour cancellation policy otherwise full fees will apply. All sessions are to be paid for in advance.
