A Flexible Fee Structure to Suit All*
Your first assessment session will be £140 (individuals); £160 (couples) or £240 (families). There is a lot of work involved to do this properly whilst with you and, unseen, after the session has finished. During the first session we will discuss an appropriate ongoing fee structure for you, including what financial assistance you may need.
As a clinic we made a conscious decision to make our fees as low as possible with a financially assisted, means-tested provision. The only way we can offer this is to book sessions on a monthly basis, therefore allocating a room and clinician. We do ask that you pay as close to the normal fee as possible as funds are limited.
|* Individual Therapy||£140 (GBP) / 50 minutes|
|* Couple Therapy||£160 (GBP)/ 50 minutes|
|* Family Therapy||£240 (GBP)/ 1.5 hours|
|* Intensive Therapy||Click Here|
|Formulation Report Writing||£450 (GBP) + £240 per hour for further work in association with report (court, social work meeting etc.)|
Cancellations and Punctuality:
Once sessions are booked they cannot be cancelled but may be rescheduled if 48 hours notice is given. Unfortunately, a session cannot be extended if you arrive late. As such it is advised to attend your session on time in order to make the best use of the time allocated to you. If you arrive more than 15 minutes early you will have to wait outside. If you arrive less than 15 minutes early, you will be let in but will need to wait in the waiting room until your session time.
*Although we will do our utmost to reschedule funded sessions, failure to attend will incur full cancellation fees.
Session payment may either be made by cheque or cash at the beginning or end of each session, or paid online using a credit or debit card. Alternatively, sessions may be paid once you have been invoiced. We will keep your credit/debit card details on file as an additional means of payment. As we do offer funding our preferred method of payment is by direct bank transfer.
From April 1st 2019, our financial assistance provision will be set at the following levels:
Individuals Up to 50% funding*
Couples: Up to 50% funding*
Families: Up to 50% funding*
If you are in need of financial assistance to access our service we will endeavour to help. However, our funding pot is limited, so we urge you to explore other avenues (e.g. friends and family) before requesting assistance.
Should you still need financial assistance, please consider how much you could contribute. The funding levels above are maximum allowances and even taking £5 less will help us to fund as many people as possible.
For payment via online/telephone banking our bank details are:

Your Initial Assessment:
Before undertaking any kind of therapy we our obliged to carry out an initial assessment of how well you are and understand what place you are in. During this assessment time we will discuss the problems you are experiencing and how we may be able to help you. This is also a good time to get to know you and discover what you want from therapy.
Our promise is to take the guesswork out of getting you appropriate help, and if we cannot help you we will do everything in our power to find someone who can.
