Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
£60 per 45 minute session, reduced to £150 for a block of 3 sessions if you pay in advance.
HOW CAN I PAY?
I can accept either cash or cheque; I cannot accept card payments.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
The first session is an exploratory session when we come to an understanding of what the problem is and what help you will need. We may be able to resolve your need on the first session or we may schedule one or several more sessions to achieve our objective.
WILL I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING IN BETWEEN SESSIONS?
Sometimes I will suggest that you practice a useful procedure which I have taught you, or I will ask you to think about the answers to some carefully chosen questions. It is important to understand that my emphasis is not on "curing" you but on working with you to find ways in which you can improve your own health and wellbeing.
WILL YOU ACT AS MY OWN GENERAL PRACTITIONER?
I have now retired from general practice so I do not offer medical services.
I seek to work in harmony with the care your own GP offers and to offer additional perspectives.
WHAT IF I HAVE TO CANCEL AN APPOINTMENT?
It is important to let me know if you need to rearrange or cancel an appointment. I need you to give me at least 48 hours notice. A charge of £30 is payable for cancellations at short notice (under 48 hours). Do not be concerned by this - most practitioners will charge the full fee for late cancellations, and it is easily prevented.
WHERE DO I COME TO?
I usually see clients in my home in Swindon.
I can arrange consultations in other places or offer telephone consultations.
