Fees for therapy

We offer both Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and counselling to help you or your child achieve better wellbeing. Note, please read about our therapist team to see that many of our therapists are trained in more than one therapy model, e.g. CBT, existential therapy, DBT, EMDR, ACT, etc.

Read below to see what we offer and the fees for therapy and other services. Please get in touch to discuss more.

Treatment for both adults and children tends to last between 5 and 20 sessions, as research show this provides long lasting change for clients. It is therefore recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which guides UK health services in what treatments to offer. The average number of sessions our clients tend to need is 10-15.

We also offer reduced rates for direct block bookings of treatment sessions: 10% off when booking 6 sessions as a block to be paid upfront. There will not be a time limit or end date for you to use your sessions. You also do not have to use all your sessions in go. For instance, you might like to spread out the last few sessions over a few months to consolidate your learning. We would not advise you to block book treatment sessions until after you have had an assessment. This is so that you and the therapist are sure that a course of therapy could be helpful.

*Please note, rates for children are higher due to the additional time spent outside of sessions. This includes liaising with parents, schools and other professionals (with your consent).

Remote sessions

We opened our clinic during the pandemic, and as such, we only offered support via zoom or telephone. Even though face to face contact is allowed now, we have continued to offer zoom and telephone treatment only, as it has been so effective.

Our staff have been able to see more clients as there is less travel time, and we have taken on staff who live in various geographical locations. This means we can cherry pick the best therapists for the team, regardless of where they live. Our clients have also told us they love the flexibility around work, school and other commitments.

There is also loads of evidence emerging about how remote therapy is just as effective as face to face therapy. This is an up and coming area of therapy research. The benefits include: no travel time, flexibility around your commitments, a sense of anonymity and reduced risk of Covid-19.

How to pay

We currently accept payment by BACS transfer as all sessions are virtual. You will be sent an invoice with these details, with a request to pay before the next session. Note, for assessments, we do ask for payment at least 24 hours before the appointment, to secure your slot.

Insurers we work with

Some of our therapists are registered with various insurance providers, including WPA, Cigna, and Aviva.

Please note, we do not work with AXA, Bupa or Vitality due to their low pay rates to therapists.

We are always looking at other insurance providers to partner with too. Please let us know when you contact us, if you are with a certain provider and we can see what they can offer for you. We have also been know to sign up with some providers at your request to enable us to see you via your insurance. Therefore please do enquire if it you’re with someone that we’re not currently signed up with, and we’ll see what we can do!

Cancellations

Please contact us as soon as possible if you have to cancel or change an appointment.

We will not charge you for cancelling appointments unless you provide us with less than 24 hours’ notice (excluding weekends). This will then mean we will bill you for the full rate (or the session will come out of one of the pre-paid block of sessions). Whilst we really dislike doing this, we are often unable to offer an appointment to anyone else with such short notice, and the hour goes unfilled.

To reduce the chance of this happening, we will send an email reminder to you 48 hours before the session, so you can contact us as soon as possible if you do need to cancel or move the session.
