Details of fees can be given on request. Please note, that I have Specialist Provider Recognition with a number of health insurance companies. If you have private health insurance the cost of your sessions may be fully or partially covered by your insurer.

How can I arrange an appointment?

We normally require a letter from an involved health professional (e.g. GP) before a first appointment is arranged but this is not always essential. Telephone Dr Proctor on 07954 963 736, leaving a brief message and a telephone number. You can e-mail or write if you prefer, but we normally talk to new clients so that we can discuss whether we are the right professionals for you. You can also contact Dr Proctor’s P.A. on TBA. We usually suggest an initial assessment session before agreeing an individualised treatment plan.

What if I need to cancel an appointment?

If you have to cancel an appointment, please contact Dr Proctor on: 07954 963 736 and leave her a message. If we have had 24 hours notice or if the problem is unavoidable we do not charge for missed appointments, otherwise we do.

What will an initial appointment involve?

The first appointment is designed to develop a thorough assessment of your difficulties and to decide whether psychological therapy is appropriate for you. If psychological therapy is an appropriate treatment, the first session is an opportunity to identify your therapy goals and to decide which type of therapy would be useful.

How many sessions will I have?

Therapy is organised over an agreed number of sessions. Typically, between 8 and 12 sessions are agreed but this can be significantly longer or shorter depending on the needs of the individual client. Sessions are usually arranged on a weekly basis. Sometimes, a follow-up session is arranged after therapy has ended to help maintain the progress achieved.
