Are you a regulated profession?
Clinical Psychologists are registered as Practitioner Psychologists, with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). They retain a register of professionals who meet HCPC standards for training, skills, behaviour, and health.

Please use the Contact page to book an appointment, or email email@example.com. You are welcome to get in touch if you would like to informally discuss your requirements to see how we can help. We reply to all enquiries promptly.
Do you accept third-party referrals?
With the consent of the client, we accept referrals from health care professionals, health insurers, rehabilitation companies, businesses, voluntary agencies, and solicitors.
For self-funding clients our rate is £110, based on a 55-minute therapeutic hour. If your treatment is being funded by an employer, solicitor, or other organisation, the financial liability falls to the third party, who can contact us directly to discuss our fee structure.
Upon booking an appointment you will be emailed details on how to make payment, usually by bank transfer.
How do I use health insurance?
Please let us know at the point of booking if you have health insurance, and we will guide you through the process for accessing this.
Following an assessment, we will discuss your treatment options. There is flexibility, depending on your needs. Generally, this is weekly, but we also offer fortnightly sessions. Medicolegal appointments are usually a single session.
Please provide at least 24 hours’ notice of a cancellation. The full fee will be payable for short notice.
