Making an Appointment

If you want to see one of our psychologists, you can simply contact us using the form below or call the number above. We would be happy to have a short chat with you about what you are looking for before booking your first appointment. Generally we would be able to see you within 2 weeks.

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.

You can find the BUPA directory details for our lead psychologist, Colin Matthews, here.

Fees & Payment

We take payment by Credit Card, cash, cheque or BACS. If your sessions are paid for by your health insurance company, we will invoice them directly.
