The Fees

image3

  

Fees are £120 per hour. 


Our initial meeting ('initial assessment') is 1 hour  20  minutes  long and costs £250.  Following the initial assessment,   we will  write a comprehensive report summarising our session, including the formulation and recommendations for managing the problem.   We  will also liaise  with school or your  child’s nursery.


Subsequent sessions last 1 hour and cost £120.


We are happy to travel to schools for sessions or meetings when convenient and will charge travel time  in addition to  the  length of the meeting. Travel is charged at £60 per hour, plus any travel expenses (e.g. train fares). 


Fees can either be paid directly by parents or as part of a health insurance package. We are a specialist health provider for numerous health insurers including BUPA, Aviva, WPA, Cigna, Vitality and Simply Health. We are currently not accepting funding via AXA PPP.  Parents need to seek authorisation from their health insurer before an assessment appointment is booked and provide details of their health insurance by completing the patient information form.

How to Pay

You will recieve an invoice following each session. This can be paid by card machine at the clinic or via BACS.


For sessions funded by Private Medical Insurance, invoices will be sent direct to the insurer. Please ensure you have authorisation prior to commencing sessions. If insurers fail to pay, payment will be sought directly.


Cancellations

 We are more than happy to change and alter the time of an appointment but we require at least 48 hours notice to do so. We will send an email reminder to you 48 hours prior to the session so if there are any problems with the time, please do let us know straight away.


Unfortunately, if you give us less than 24 hours notice to cancel your appointment, we will have to invoice you the full rate for this missed session. This is because due to the late notice, we will be unable to offer the time to another family. 

Emergencies

  

Please note that we only work part-time. We will aim to reply to your contact during this time or as soon as I can.
