Frequently asked questions

Q: Where do you work?

 

I work at The Harbourside Practice in central Bristol. It has good parking in the vincinity, is on the bus route and is 10 minutes walk from Bristol Temple Meads railway station.

 

Daytime and evening appointments are available. My clinic slots are usually Monday daytimes, Tuesday aftenoon and evening, and Thursday afternoon and evening. I do not work at the weekend.

 

Q: Can I contact you to arrange an initial assessment?

 

Yes, you are very welcome to do that. I accept self-referred individuals as well as people who have been referred by their GPs, employers or via insurance companies. My contact details can be found here: Contact me.

 

Q: Will my therapy be paid for by my private health insurance or other party?

 

You will need to check with your health insurer before seeking therapy as not all health plans cover psychological therapies. Your employer might also fund your therapy.

 

I am registered with the following healthcare insurance companies: BUPA, Aviva, Axa PPP, Cigna, Pru Health, Simply Health and WPA. Please note that you will be personally liable to pay any excesses or shortfalls in  your treatment which are not covered by your policy.

 

Q: I'm not sure if my problem is suitable for therapy...

 

I am happy to spend some time with you on the telephone for a free-of-charge mini-consultation to discuss your issue(s) and whether you would benefit from booking an initial assessment session with me.

 

Q: How much do you charge?

 

A standard therapy session (50 minutes) varies in cost, depending on whether you are paying yourself or are funded by another source. Please email or ring me to find out more. 

 

Q: Do you see children and adolescents?

 

No, I specialise in adults who are aged 18 and over. However, I recommend that anyone seeking help for someone who is under 18 gets in touch with the Bristol Child Psychology Practice at http://bristolchildpsychologypractice.co.uk/ or Bristol Psychology Services at https://www.bristolpsychologyservices.co.uk/services/psychological-assessment-and-therapy-for-children-young-people-and-families.html.
