Please see below for all rates, including those for remote assessment, therapy, and clinical supervsion:
Prior to assessment and therapy:
After you have first made contact with Dr Freedman, you may be offered an initial telephone consultation of 15 minutes which is to ascertain in brief what your issues are and whether therapy is the best option for you. This will be free of charge. Alternatively you can email some brief details of the issues when you first make an enquiry.
The initial psychological and health asssessment lasts for up to 90 minutes, where you will be asked questions about yourself and the issues you have come to therapy with. This will also include a short health assessment, followed by three brief clinical questionnaires which will look at symptoms of depression, anxiety, and phobia/avoidance.
Rates for the initial assessement and for subsequent sessions, differ according to which method of communication is used.
Face-to-face Assessment (for 1.5 hours): £120. Or £85 per one hour.
Subsequent face-to-face sessions will be: £85 per one hour session.
(This is dependent on what type of therapy is required, e.g. Hypnotherapy is charged at £95 per one hour session, other therapeutic approaches will be £85 per one hour session).
Remote Assessment rates for all therapies, including hypnotherapy:
Assessment via Skype, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Zoom, Teams, and VSee: £110 per 1.5 hour session or £75 for 1 hour.
Assessment via telephone: £100 per 1.5 hours or £65 per 1 hour.
Subsequent sessions via Skype, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Zoom, Teams, or VSee: £75 per one hour session
