Fees cover face to face time as well as overheads including ongoing training, supervision and professional registrations to help ensure a safe and top quality service.
Adult Autism Spectrum Assessments
Adult Autism Spectrum assessments are £1200 to include the assessment, feedback session and written report.
Formal assessment of additional conditions such as ADHD would incur an additional cost.
If preferred, an initial one hour consultation session and screening is £150, which is deducted from the total price if the full assessment goes ahead.
You may be able to fund the assessment using health insurance. I am registered with all major providers including Bupa and AXA. You can also speak with your further education provider who may be able to advise on support with fees.
You will be asked to pay a 10% deposit at the time of booking and to give at least 48 hours notice to cancel or reschedule the assessment session. If less notice is given the deposit will be forfeited to cover my time and overheads.
Are sessions confidential?
The sessions are for you, and it is important that you feel comfortable to share your thoughts and feelings.
Your safety and well-being is my priority. If I am concerned about the immediate safety of you, or anyone else, I will discuss this with you. We may need the support of a friend, family member or professional. Very rarely I might not be able to discuss this with you first, for example if this would delay getting help.
For crisis support outside of sessions, please call your GP or go to the local Accident and Emergency Service which will be open 24/7. You can access a one-off free session with an experienced counsellor 24 hours a day 7 days a week through Vitahealth if you live in Bristol, North Somerset or South Gloucestershire. Call 0800 0126549.
What happens to my personal data?
In order to do my job effectively and safely, I make brief notes during sessions. I collect information about your current and previous psychological and physical health, and your current and previous social and family circumstances. I also have a record of your contact details and payments.
I keep your personal information in electronic records using encryption and password protected systems. I keep your personal information and the record of our work together for seven years then erase your records.
It is possible that your personal information may be requested by a Court of Law, Coroner’s Office or Professional Body in which circumstances you may have limited or no rights of refusal. You have the right to request a copy of the information that I hold about you.
I look forward to working together. If you have any questions, please ask!
