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.
