Private psychological psychotherapy | CBT | IPT | EMDR | Stamford | Linconshire

Availability and Fees

Due to COVID-19, all psychotherapy sessions are currently via online platforms or by telephone and I have been offering online sessions since 16th March 2020. Please read the information here for guidance and to provide consent to therapy.

All sessions last between 30 -55 minutes and will incur the fees below. These fees also apply to all initial assessment appointments and irrespective of session duration.

If sessions are over 55 mins and up to 65 mins, then no additional fees will be charged.

I do not offer free assessment appointments as I believe there is therapeutic value in the assessment enabling us to work together to understand your difficulties and agreeing whether to work together, as this underpins collaborative therapy.

Self-funded therapy to work

For CBT or IPT with regards to anxiety difficulties or depression:

Sunday and Monday daytime and evenings in Cambridge:

  • £95 per session (weekdays)

  • £105 per session (Sundays)

All fees are payable in advance through BACS payment or by cash on the day. Please ask for bank details if you wish to pay by BACS.

Student rates are available for CBT,  please contact me for further details.


Fees paid in advance of the session and the session is attended are non-refundable.

Fees will only be refunded if there is more than 48hrs advanced notice of cancellation of the appointment, unless you choose to use it towards the next session booked.

Fees are non-refundable if you decide that you do not wish to proceed with therapy after the initial sessions.

Fees are non-refundable where sessions last between 30-55 mins.


Therapy sessions are booked in good faith, consequently the appointment cannot be offered to anyone else, therefore late cancellations and/or missed appointments lead to loss of income.

CBT Supervision

Individual supervision sessions are charged at £80 per 1 hour session, with the same cancellation policy as therapy sessions.

Group supervision also available.

Cancellation Policy

All appointments cancelled more than 24hrs before the appointment, will not be charged. Any sessions cancelled with less than 24hrs notice, will be charged in full. Any appointments that are unattended, without contact, will be charged in full.

Please be aware that all fees will be payable either prior to or at the beginning of next session.

Insurance Companies

Insurance companies do not pay for missed appointments, therefore, please be aware that cancellation fees will be charged directly to the member to be settled in full.
