SPECIAL REDUCED PRICE CBT AND COUNSELLING
In these unprecedented and uncertain times anxiety levels are high. Each of us has to do our bit to help others. For my part, as a gesture of goodwill, from today, 19th March, I will be reducing my hourly rate by £20 to £55 for a three month period, to make CBT and counselling available to you by Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp or phone.
If you are funding services yourself, you may choose to make a payment each session, you may pay by card or cash.
If you are claiming on your medical insurance, it is important to ask them first if you’re covered for the services you require and if there are any specific exclusions. Some insurance companies will fund treatment following a direct referral from a GP, others may have a different referral pathway.
Fees may vary with different companies.
Missed, broken or cancelled sessions are charged in full, apart from in exceptional circumstances.
Companies and organisations – please contact us to discuss invoicing arrangement.
