Psychological therapy sessions cost £90 for a 50 minute appointment for self funding individuals. I also work with several insurance companies such as BUPA, where the fee is agreed in my contract with the company.
I usually work with clients on a weekly basis, at the same time each week, as this provides sufficient momentum for progress to take place. I have evening appointments available in my therapy room in Lea and I also offer appointments via the online platform Zoom.
I offer a 15 minute telephone consultation prior to booking appointments, as this will help us to establish if I might be able to help you before we enter into a more detailed assessment period. There is no obligation for you to book an appointment following a telephone consultation or after the initial assessment session, as it is important that you feel comfortable with the therapist you choose and you will only be able to establish this after you have made contact with me.
If you are self funding, the discussions we have within sessions are confidential, unless I have any concerns about risks to you or risks to others. If I have any concerns I will endeavour to discuss with you how best to manage the risk, which may require contact with your GP, for example. If your sessions are funded by an external agency, such as health insurance, then I will routinely be required to share details of our work with them.
As all psychologists, I have a professional supervisor to ensure that my work is safe and effective. Myself and my supervisor discuss my work, but no personally identifiable details are shared.
Unfortunately, I am unable to provide emergency input outside of our agreed sessions. If you feel you would need this level of support, then I suggest discussing this with your GP and requesting a referral to your local NHS mental health service who are in a position to offer this where appropriate. If you need urgent help please contact your GP, GP out of hours service or attend your nearest A&E service.
Non-attendance and cancellation of appointments within 48 hours of the session will incur the full session fee.
If you would like to book a telephone consultation, please send me an email and I will be in touch.
