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 online psychotherapy. 

The current flat fees for online Psychotherapy:
CBT and IPT: Weekdays (9-4:30): £95   
Evenings (after 18:00hrs) £105
Sundays and Bank Holidays are available by prior arrangement only: £110
EMDR weekdays (9-4:30): £110

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

Please speak to me if you wish to block book 6 or more sessions in advance as this will qualify for a 15% discount.

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.

Where fees paid in advance and the session is attended, these are non-refundable.
Fees paid in advance 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.
All 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.

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.
