The cost of private CBT therapists varies depending on a range of factors, including the time, location, and the individual therapist. Some of the things you might want to take into account when you are deciding your budget for CBT are the qualifications of the therapist, their speciality areas, convenience of appointments, number of sessions you are likely to need, and of course how you feel about the therapist and his or her style of therapy. I recommend that you don't have to commit to a long course of therapy before you have met the therapist (and you're allowed to change your mind).

Please note that my fees are not available on a sliding scale.
For your first appointment only, payment is requested up front on the day by cash, Apple Pay, pingit, cheque, credit or debit card. If you decide to go ahead with regular CBT, you will be able to pay weekly or monthly by bank transfer, PayPal, Apply Pay, pingit, debit or credit card.
If you provide at least two days' notice, there is no cancellation charge. Cancellations made the day before your appointment incur a £20 administration fee. Cancellations made on the day of your appointment are charged at 50% of the cost of the session. If you simply do not turn up without notifying me, you will be charged the full rate.
Your time is as valuable as mine. I offer a reciprocal cancellation policy in the spirit of George Costanza and the delicate genius, which means that if I cancel your appointment the day before, you will receive a £20 discount off your next session. If I cancel on the day, you will get 50% off the following appointment. If I simply do not turn up, your next session is free.
