How can I pay?

Please be aware I cannot accept cheques or debit/credit cards at this time.

Medical Insurance

I am registered to accept payments from a number of private health companies. (Bupa, AXA PPP, AVIVA, Vitality and Aetna Benefits)
Please discuss this with me prior to attending your first appointment and check with your insurance provider. A policy excess fee is typically payable, please check with your insurance provider.
If your insurance provider is not listed above please discuss this with me.

Are you registered with a professional body?

The title of Clinical Psychologist is protected by law so that only those that have completed the rigorous academic, research and clinical aspects of training for the three year Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) are able to use it.

In order to practice within the NHS or independently clinical psychologists must register with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) who monitor health professionals and provide assurance about the quality and credentials of these professionals.

I am also a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society which according to them “legally recognises and reflects only the highest standards of psychological knowledge and expertise”. More information can be found here: https://www.bps.org.uk/join-us/membership/chartered-membership

Where would we meet?

I use warm, comfortable and confidential consulting rooms at the Bay Therapy Centre in West Bridgford, Nottingham. More information can be found here: https://www.baytherapycentre.com/

Is what we discuss kept confidential?

Yes, your information is kept in the strictest of confidence and your information is held safely and securely and in keeping with HCPC, BPS and GDPR policies and recommendations.
The only information I am unable to keep confidential is if I believe you or someone else may come to harm; I would then have a duty of care to discuss with the appropriate authorities. I would try to discuss this with you first.
When we first meet I will provide you with the terms and conditions, further detailing about how and what information is kept.

How many sessions do I need?

Whilst there may be guidelines developed by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) it is very difficult to be prescriptive as to exactly how many sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired outcome. 
After the thorough assessment session I will discuss with you what I believe to be an appropriate number of sessions. This will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. It is not in anyone's interest to provide more therapy than is necessary. There are no contracts regarding how many sessions you should attend, and you are free to decide at any point whether you feel it beneficial to attend or not.

What if I need to cancel?

It may be that you are unable to attend an appointment for a variety of reasons. Please be aware that cancellation fees may apply and are described below.

  • Free if more than 48 hours notice is given by phone or email

  • 50% of the session if 24 - 48 hours notice is given by phone or email

  • 100% of the session if less than 24 hours notice is given or non-attendance
