Fees and Cancellations

Our hourly rate is £120 and nearly all follow on sessions are one hour. Your fee includes post-appointment e-mail support (for non-urgent issues – we will respond within 24 hours) for up to 1 month after Everlief’s face-to-face contact with your child (or yourself) finishes.

Clinical psychology Assessments

For initial assessments a one-off fee of £275 is payable. This covers:
  • the 80 minute face-to-face meeting;
  • any necessary telephone calls, for example to a GP or school (only done with your full consent)
  • a detailed report outlining the psychologist’s understanding of the difficulties, and recommendations.

Educational psychology Assessments

These assessments are £750 plus travel.

Specialist assessment packages

We undertake certain specialised assessments, such as for autism or a cognitive assessment. These require a higher level of input from the clinical psychologist, for example a visit to observe the child at school or nursery, and use of particular psychological tools and questionnaires. The price of our specialist assessment packages vary but are based on the hourly rate above. Please do get in touch with us to discuss your particular needs.

How to pay

We accept payment by BACS transfer, cheque, or debit card (preferred). We can accept credit cards but there is a 1.75% charge for this.

We are registered with most of the private medical insurance companies (we are currently not accepting new clients from AxaPPP). If you have cover, please check with your provider what is included.

Cancellations

Please contact us as early as possible if you have to cancel an appointment. We will not charge you for cancellations or moving appointments, unless you give us less than 24 hours’ notice. To help you we will send an email reminder 48 hours before so that you can let us know if there is a problem.

With less than 24 hours notice we need to charge the full price (we can sometimes reduce this by 1/3 if the child is ill etc.). This is not something we like to do but as we will have reserved the space for you it will not be possible for us to offer the time for another family with such short notice.
