Fees & Session Information

ADHD and Autism Assessments Fees

A diagnostic assessment for an individual Autism or individual ADHD assessment costs £2195.  A combined ADHD and Autism assessment costs £3495.  All assessments include a full and detailed written report including recommendations for future support.

The pre-screening consultation costs £200 (payable on booking), which will be deducted from the total amount above should we decide together that a full assessment is helpful.  Should a full assessment be agreed following this pre-screening session, 50% fee would be required upon booking to secure all the required appointments.  The remaining 50% would be required to be paid prior to booking the final feedback appointment.  You have a right to cancel the appointments with full refund up to 10 working days prior to any booked appointments.  After this time, we may not be able to ensure these slots are filled, and as such there will be a charge of £250 to cover any loss incurred.

There are a few additional extra costings that you may need to be aware of.  All assessments include a feedback meeting as standard, but should you require a second feedback meeting, this will cost an additional £120.  Also, very occasionally, some extra information may be required to help reach a diagnostic decision. This will always be discussed and agreed before arranging. The extra information may be in the form of a school observation (costing £130) or additional background information interview (costing £130 per one-hour appointment).

Other Therapy Session Fees

Sessions usually last approximately 50 minutes and be charged at a rate of £120 per session (if via telephone/online) or £130 per session (if face-to-face).  I offer a 15-minute free initial telephone consultation to assess suitability.  

Payment is normally made at least 48 hours in advance of each session.  Unfortunately, cancellations with less than 24hrs notice will be subject to the full session cost. 

I am registered with most private health care insurance companies, so if you have insurance please check with your provider that they cover you for psychological therapy.

Other Therapy Session Information

The number of sessions required varies dependent on the person, their wishes and their therapeutic goals.  Most courses of therapy range between 8-12 sessions, although can be briefer (e.g. 4 sessions) or longer (+20 sessions).  This is something that we can discuss within the initial consultation and develop a plan together.  

Therapy sessions generally take place on a weekly or fortnightly basis to ensure therapy is most helpful / effective.
