I am registered with Bupa, AXA, Cigna, Healix, and Prudential.

Office Hours

My clinical days when I offer regular therapy and coaching appointments are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  The earliest appointment time available is 9:30 and the latest, 15:30. 

Assessment appointments for court proceedings are available on Mondays and Fridays.

I do not offer any evening or weekend appointments.

Session location

Therapy, supervision, and coaching sessions take place either in person or online.  My office in Cornwall Buildings is in Birmingham city centre, within the Colmore Business District.

Assessments for court proceedings take place at Solicitors’ offices and Local Authority premises as required.

Attendance policy

If you cancel a session within 48 hours of the session time (other than for acute ill health), or fail to attend altogether, you will still have to pay for the missed session.

Those using health insurance will be billed directly for any missed sessions as insurance companies do not cover for this.

Accessibility

Cornwall Buildings is easy to access by public and private transport.  There is one step up from the pavement to the ground floor reception level of the building.  Inside, there are stairs and a lift to access the first floor where my office is.  Please contact me if you wish to discuss specific accessibility needs.

Confidentiality

There are strict data privacy rules when seeing a Registered and Chartered Psychologist, and confidentiality can only be broken for very specific reasons.  The first is where there is a significant and immediate risk to your safety and wellbeing or to someone else’s.  Registered and Chartered Psychologists are also legally obliged to report serious criminal behaviour or planning.
