Fees

 

My fees and pricing structure fall within the typical range for experienced Clinical Psychologists, however, I am happy to consider individual circumstances. I also accept funding through the Adoption Support Fund (ASF) and have professional healthcare recognition with private health insurers AXA PPP Healthcare, AVIVA, BUPA, WPA and Vitality Health. 

Please note that other therapists may charge more or less depending on their skills, level of training and clinical experience. Please also note that some children and young people may be eligible to free mental health services through the NHS and you can seek advice about this from your GP if this is your preference.

 

Initial or Extended Parent Consultation Session

80-Minutes, £190 or £210 for sessions after 5pm 

This is an opportunity for parents/guardians to meet with me to discuss any concerns that you might have about your child. During this session, I will also gather relevant developmental and background information about your child in order to help inform my thinking and discussion with you about what might be most helpful to your child going forwards. For some parents, a one-off consultation can feel sufficient for what they feel they need. For others, they may wish to consider additional support from either myself or another service, depending on what is discussed. In either case, formal summary reports, outlining the details of our discussions, my clinical formulation and recommendations going forward can be commissioned upon request. Parent consultations can be offered face-to-face in my clinic or online.
