Fees & Booking
How to access our services, and information about the fees and payment options.
Accessing our services
You can access our services by contacting us directly and making an appointment. We also accept referrals from other health practitioners including GPs and Psychiatrists. While you do not need a GP or Psychiatry referral to make an appointment, a referral may be necessary if you are claiming through private insurance. If this is the case, simply ask your referrer to send a letter to us with your contact details and some brief information regarding your reason for seeking our services. Once we receive your referral, we will contact you within 24 hours to arrange an appointment. If you have any questions or concerns about the referral process, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
If you are an organisation or group, please contact us directly so that we can discuss your particular requirements.
Therapy sessions and assessments vary in price. Here’s a guide to our fee structure:
- Therapy sessions with a senior psychologist or psychotherapist range from £150 – £175
- Therapy sessions with a junior psychologist – £85
- Psychiatry initial appointments – £450
- Psychiatry follow-ups – £225
- Psychology assessments – start from £450
- Family sessions – £200
Our senior team members are HCPC Registered Practitioners. Our junior team members are completing their doctorate training in psychology and are in-training members of the BPS (British Psychological Society).
Payment & Insurance
If your fees are covered by private insurance, please contact your insurance provider prior to your appointment to ensure your treatment in covered by your policy. Sometimes, insurance companies require a referral from a GP or Psychiatrist in order to authorise treatment with a Psychologist. If this is the case, please contact us should you require some assistance with this process. We work closely with a number of GPs and Psychiatrists, and would be happy to recommend somebody to you. Many of Altum’s Associates are covered by the major health insurance providers in the UK including AXA/PPP, BUPA International, Norwich Union, SimplyHealth, Vitality, WPA, and CIGNA. If your insurance provider is not listed here, please contact us as we are easily able to register with new providers.
