Fees 2024

Consultation Fees

My fees reflect the value of my services and the dedication I’ve put into my practice. They align with my commitment to delivering high-quality care. I recognise my fees may restrict access for some who would benefit from my services. I do offer concessions for those who cannot afford my full fee.

Initial Consultation

For June, I am waiving initial consultation fees to remove barriers for contacting me and for clients to see if they can work with me.
£50 – Free 20-minute online session

Consultation Fees – Self Funded


1.

Pay As You Go

This payment option is ideal if you prefer the flexibility of paying for each session as it occurs. Please note that this approach necessitates issuing individual invoices for each session, which introduces a greater administrative burden. Consequently, the fees for this service are slightly higher.

£125 per 50-minute session


2.

Advance Block Bookings – 3 Sessions in 1 Invoice

This option allows you to book and pay for three sessions in advance with a single invoice. This consolidated approach reduces administrative tasks and costs.

3 x £110 per 50-minute session, equals £330 per invoice


Concessions


1.

Warrington and Whiston Practice Opening Introductory Offer

To mark the opening of new practices in Central Warrington and Whiston, clients who begin therapy in June at these locations will receive a reduced rate for 12 sessions. From July onwards, standard rates will apply for new clients.

£125 – £85 per 50-minute session


Payments & No-Cancellation Policy

I operate on a pre-payment system, which means the fee for the upcoming week is due in advance. I accept most debit and credit cards, including AMEX. I have a strict no-cancellation policy, which means when you commit to therapy, the fee is due weekly even if you cannot make it to therapy due to illness or other commitments. This policy is designed to create a supportive structure for both you and me, so we can focus on your progress without the added stress of scheduling changes. It helps ensure a consistent and positive therapeutic experience for all involved.


Working with Health Insurance Companies

I am registered with AXA, Aviva and WPA and can bill them directly. Some international insurers may only require my professional registration, not formal registration with them. Check if they cover psychotherapy and EMDR with a UKCP-registered practitioner. Always confirm with your insurer before beginning therapy to ensure coverage.


Access to Work

If you’re Autistic or diagnosed with ADHD, you may qualify for support from Access to Work. The application process is straightforward and you can apply online. The current waiting period is about 12 weeks. If you have already secured funds, please get in touch via my contact form to discuss the first steps.


Organisational Bookings

For organisational bookings, the fee structure differs. Please request a quote through the contact form for specific pricing details.


The First Step

Self-Assessment and Getting in Touch
Assess if working with me suits your needs and if I’m the right clinician for you. If affirmative, use the form under ‘Get in Touch‘ to clarify any questions you may have, or arrange an initial video consultation.


Pre-Screening and Preparation
The initial video consultation serves as an opportunity for us both to determine if we are a suitable fit to work together. In some cases, like psychosexual therapy, further steps, such as a self-organised medical examination, may be advised after this call.


Setting Up Sessions and Starting Therapy
If you decide to move forward after the initial consultation, we will work together to schedule the start date for your therapy either at one of my practices or online. Please keep in mind there might be a waiting period, depending on your scheduling preferences. If we are unable to agree on a start date that suits your needs, I can offer the choice of joining a waitlist or assisting you in finding a suitable referral to one of my colleagues.
