I review my fees on an annual basis. They were last reviewed on 1st November 2019.

The following fees apply if you are paying for your child's treatment yourself, without health insurance cover. I believe fees should be simple, inclusive and open and so have made this information freely available on my website. Fees quoted are valid from 1st November 2019 to 31st October 2020 when they will be reviewed.

First appointment in clinic (1 hour)£300.00letter / postage / prescription if needed
Follow-up appointment in clinic (1 hour)£300.00letter / postage / prescription if needed
Follow-up appointment in clinic (½ hour)£150.00letter / postage / prescription if needed
Follow-up telephone consultation (½ hour)£150.00letter / postage / prescription if needed
Repeat prescription agreed at any other time*£30.00postage if needed
Letter or report agreed at any other time£60.00postage if needed


​​Additional costs may apply for tests or investigations including those carried out as part of an ADHD assessment. Fees for medicolegal assessments and reports are different from the fees above.

*Prescriptions will only be issued for patients under my care and for treatments I have recommended for mental health issues. For a new treatment the prescription will be for one month. For long term treatment if the dose has been established, at my discretion I will issue prescriptions for up to 3 months while coronavirus social distancing or stay at home rules are in force. The fee will remain £30 for each prescription sent out by post whether for 1, 2 or 3 months, and I will continue to issue one prescription without charge, if needed, when an appointment takes place.

If you are paying for your child’s treatment yourself, then fees must be paid in advance of treatment, at the time of booking. I am able to accept cash, cheque or credit card payments. 

I am recognised as a specialist by the following medical insurers: ​BUPA, AXA PPP, WPA, AvivaVitality (formerly Prudential), Cigna and CS Healthcare. If your policy is with a different insurer then please contact me as it may be possible to arrange recognition.

Some medical insurers set their own fees for consultations which will be different from the fees listed above. I am not able to change these fees or make them available on my website, and they may be subject to change by the insurer. The fees above will apply if the insurer has not set their own fee. If your insurance policy only covers part of the fee (for example, if there is a policy excess) then the remainder of your fee must be paid in full by yourself within 30 days of the invoice date.

A written agreement including fees that will apply, terms and conditions will be provided at the first appointment and will need to be signed. This agreement can be provided in advance, via e-mail, on request.

​Please feel free to contact me in confidence if you have any questions or to make a booking.
