Payment of Fees

 

For clients who are self-funding, payment is made 48 hours in advance of the session by bank transfer, or at the end of each session by cash. Clients may also pay in advance for a set number of appointments. An invoice will be raised between appointments. 

 

Private Medical Insurance

 

Many health insurance plans cover private psychological therapy. Dr. Esther Cole and her Associates are registered with many of the major insurance companies, i.e. BUPA, Cigna, Aviva, AXA PPP. Please contact them with the name of your Associate Psychologist to proceed with the authorisation of your sessions. They will then issue you with a pre-authorisation code for a set number of sessions.  At your first session you will be asked for:

-  Your policy number
-  The pre-authorisation code
-  The amount of funding and number of sessions offered 

-  You may be asked to pay the difference if the policy does not cover the full fee (an excess)

-  Many insurance companies will not cover the costs of missed sessions.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend your appointment please inform your therapist as soon as possible. For cancellation, 48 hours’ notice is required. Unfortunately, if you do not attend sessions, or give less than 48 hours’ notice to cancel or re-schedule, you may be liable for the full cost of the session.
