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 Telephone Consultation (Free)

I offer a free initial telephone consultation (around 15 mins) to find out a little more about your concerns and how I can help you.

 

Parent Consultation Session (80-Minutes, £180 or £200 for sessions after 5pm or on Saturdays)

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 to help to inform my thinking about what might be most helpful to them at this time. For some parents, a one-off consultation can feel sufficient for what they need. For others, they may wish to consider further ongoing support. 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 or online.

 

Ongoing Psychological Therapy (50-minutes, £110 or £130 after 5pm or Saturdays)

If indicated, these sessions will be agreed in advance and regularly reviewed with you. Sessions may be offered face-to-face or online.

(Please note that additional charges apply for formal reports or letters, which will be discussed and agreed with you in advance).

Therapeutic Needs Assessment (£1800 stand-alone package or bespoke fee structure within ongoing work)

Relevant to children in care, a therapeutic needs assessment may be commissioned by a child’s Social Worker to assess their current therapeutic needs. As a stand-alone assessment, this package will typically include an initial consultation with their carer, home and school observations, consultation with their teacher/key worker, in addition to a variety of standard assessment protocols (indicated by the child’s age and needs). The package also includes a comprehensive written report with clear recommendations for ongoing therapeutic support.
