Policies and Procedures
Health and Care Professions Council
Health Care Regulator
All our clinicians are fully registered with the HCPC as Chartered Clinical Psychologists. They are also licensed to work as Independent Practitioners. This is the regulator for all healthcare professionals.
Individual registration numbers can be found on the Meet The Team page.
Disclosure Barring Service
All our staff have been cleared to work with vulnerable adults and children. All hold enhanced DBS certificates (previously called Criminal Records Bureau checks).
We are very careful with your medical information. Therapy is confidential, which means that although patients are free to share anything discussed, we will not, unless you want us to.
We aim to keep parents fully informed for younger children, and to be mindful of medical consent for teenagers who may want more confidentiality.
We seek explicit consent before sharing information with teachers, doctors etc. The only exception to this rule is where we believe that there is a risk of harm to someone and then we share information to prevent that.
Fees for all professional work by Clinical Psychologists and Systemic Therapists are £130 per hour. (The first assessment is £260 including 90 min appointment and follow-up letter).
This includes face-to-face therapy, video appointments, liaison with professionals, parental advice and report writing.
Fees for Educational or Behavioural support are £85 per hour.
When we collect personal information from you we process and store it in accordance with the Information Commission Office guidelines. We will never sell your information or pass it to anyone else without your explicit consent.
ICO registration number ZA557527.
Our psychologists each hold their own valid professional indemnity insurance policy.
Our therapists are all qualified and experienced enough for their work to be eligible for health insurance.
Please note that some providers or policies are limited in cover and may not meet some or all of the costs. Please contact us to see if we are able to assist.
Our psychologists are always happy to discuss any aspect of therapy provided. Please contact your therapist with any concerns or complaints you have. You are also welcome to discuss with another member of our team. We will do everything we can to resolve the situation.
If you feel that your concern has not been resolved then you may contact the British Psychological Society (BPS) or HCPC for support.
