Fees

Prior to the first appointment, I am happy to offer a free brief telephone or video consultation to discuss what you would like help with and whether I could be of help. As I link up with a number of other experienced psychologists, I would be more than happy to recommend others and link you up if I feel they would be better suited to help.

Self-funding

Following initial contact, all psychological therapy sessions (excluding EMDR / couples therapy – see below) are:

Online Weekdays/evenings: £110 per session (50 minutes)
Face-to-face Weekdays/evenings: £120 per session (50 minutes)

A question I’m often asked is how many sessions I think will be beneficial. This can be tricky to answer because a lot depends on the nature of the difficulty. However, on average, treatment is between 4-16 treatment sessions. This is quite a wide range, so do feel free to contact me if you would like to have an idea relating to the issue you are personally struggling with.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)

EMDR is a treatment specifically for trauma and is split into two parts. The first series of sessions (usually 2-4) are £110 and last 50 minutes. The second phase of EMDR treatment involves sessions that vary in length, averaging at about 75 minutes, and so each is charged at £160. Face to face appointments carry an additional £10 charge.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy sessions are longer sessions (90 minutes). This allows space for both of you to talk openly and not feel rushed. These sessions are charged at £185. If any individual sessions take place during the couples therapy process the price reverts to £110 (online). Face to face appointments carry an additional £10 charge.

Health Insurance

In addition to self-funding individuals, I also treat those with health insurance. I am an approved provider for most of the leading health insurance companies including AXA, Aviva, Bupa, Bupa Global / International, Cigna, Aetna, PruHealth / Vitality Health, Standard Life, WPA and Simplyhealth. If your provider is not listed, please contact me. Treatment rates for health insurance differ from those for self-funding individuals.
