Accessing the Service and Costs

I am happy to take referrals from across Brighton, Hove and Sussex.  You can self-refer by phoning or emailing me. Alternatively your GP, medical consultant, psychiatrist or other health professional can make a referral.

Self-referralYou can contact me directly by phone or email to organise an initial assessment.  If you are waiting for your doctor to send a referral, please feel free to contact me directly to speed up the process.

The first one or two meetings are an opportunity to explore the nature of your difficulties and your hopes and expectations of psychological therapy.  Assessment is generally one hour and subsequent meetings are 50 minutes.  I see clients at my consulting room near Preston Park in Brighton. I am able to make home vists in some circumstances.

Follow up meetings……………………………..50 minutes         £95

Assessment for weight loss surgery……….up to 2 hours     £280

 

HEALTH INSURANCE: I am registered with the BUPA Mental Health & Wellbeing Therapist Network and other major insurance providers. Many health insurance packages will cover therapy with a clinical psychologist, though some may want you to see a psychiatrist to approve a referral for psychological therapy. Most health insurance policies carry some excess.

NHS SERVICES: You may be able to access psychological therapy through the NHS. It is important to discuss your situation with your GP to ensure that you receive the most appropriate care.
