Location & fees

LOCATION

I am based at 5 Bridge Street, Bishop’s Stortford, CM23 2JU, which is situated in the heart of Bishop’s Stortford, with the town’s main car parks and access to public transport just a short walk away.

Pay & Display parking can be found at Jackson Square, CM23 3XQ, or the Causeway (next to Waitrose), CM23 2EN. Both are about 2-3 minute walk from the office.

The standard clinic hours are Mondays 9.30 – 17.00, Tuesdays 9.30– 17.00 and Thursdays 9.30 – 14.30. There is occasional availability at other times.

Appointments are 50 minutes in length (unless agreed otherwise) and are available on Zoom or face to face.

FEES

Initial psychological assessment: £190 for a 50 minute appointment, including a brief summary report.

Psychological therapy: £120 (50 minutes)

Assessment and formulation package: £490. This option includes a detailed summary report identifying the concerns; factors around why the problems may have developed; a psychological formulation or account of what has contributed and is maintaining the problems; and recommendations for next steps / interventions. The report will be based on the conversations at the initial assessment appointment (up to 90 minutes) and questionnaire data about the presenting concerns (e.g. to identify traits of ASD / ADHD). This package can be scheduled as a one off appointment, rather than leading to psychological therapy appointments.

This option can be helpful for individuals who need support in identifying and clarifying the presenting concerns and who would benefit from recommendations for them and their systems on how to go forward. The recommendations will include self help ideas, ideas that schools, families or workplaces can support the individual with and onward referrals for further assessment / support if indicated. The recommendations can be helpful for the individual’s systems (e.g. school), to help them work towards positive changes with or without diagnosed difficulties. This is NOT a diagnostic assessment for ASD or ADHD, but can be booked as a ‘screening’ appointment.

Payment should be made by bank transfer on the day of the appointment.
