I review my fees on an annual basis. The fees below will apply from 1st November 2021.

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 2021 to 31st October 2022 when they will be reviewed again.

First appointment face-to-face or video (1 hour)£360.00assessment report / postage / prescription if needed
Follow-up appointment face-to-face or video (½ hour)£180.00follow-up report / postage / prescription if needed
ADHD Investigation Package£205.00Conners-3 Questionnaires and QBcheck test
Repeat prescription requested outside an appointment
£30.00postage if needed
Letter or report in addition to the assessment/follow-up reports£60.00postage if needed


*Prescriptions will only be issued for patients under my care and for treatments I have recommended for mental health issues. Prescriptions are issued for one month at a time.

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, Cigna and others. 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.

Medicolegal work

I am able to take on a small number of medicolegal cases, including cases related to the Family Court. The fees, terms and conditions for medicolegal work are different from those above. If you are looking for a medicolegal assessment this would not be booked directly with myself but arranged through your solicitor.​
