Your First Appointment
Your initial session and any subsequent sessions are 1 hour. The sessions are for you to use in whatever way you wish. At the first session, we will want to hear a little about you and what you have come to see us for and we will usually agree on how we might work together, how often we would meet and how long we might meet for.
Private Medical Insurance (PMI)
Our psychologists are registered with all the UK health insurance companies including BUPA, AVIVA and AXA PPP. You should contact your Health Insurance company to determine if you are covered for Psychology, CBT, Psychotherapy or Counselling and to find out how you can access a psychologist. Most private medical insurance companies will allow you to contact an approved psychologist directly once they have authorised your sessions. If you would like us to see a young person under 18, they may need a psychiatric referral.
