Insured Patients

AXA PPP Insured patients will be issued with a receipt to be submitted to their insurer. Please check with your insurer that you have cover on your policy for psychotherapy and any steps you need to take before therapy begins to ensure you are covered by your insurer.

Home visits

I offer a home visit service for those struggling to attend a clinic due to physical difficulty.

Home visit fees are  currently £75 Knutsford, Poynton, Macclesfield, and surrounding areas. Fees are payable in cash at the session or via bacs prior to the session.

Please note: As of June 1 2019 my home visit fees will increase to £85 This takes into account travelling time and sessions either side of this time.

Deposit and Cancellation policy.

When an appointment is made there is usually a £25.00 deposit to be paid prior to attending the first session, by mutual agreement. This is deducted from the consultation fee at the end of the final session. This deposit is fully refundable should you not be able to attend or wish to defer attendance up to 48 hours and no later than 48 hours before commencement of the first session.

If cancellation takes place within 48 hours of the first appointment then the deposit is held until the appointment is rescheduled. It is non refundable at this point. This policy is discretionary.

Also, a  cancellation fee will be sought via invoicing if no deposit has been taken at the start of treatment. Cancellations have an impact on other clients who could have taken the appointment and also on myself – however unforseen emergencies – medical or otherwise do arise and these are taken into consideration with compassion and on notification the cancellation fee is wavered on a discretionary basis.
