Fees

NB: Important information regarding payment

I operate as a cash practice and therefore the patient (or parent) is responsible for the payment of sessions directly. Once payment has been received you will be issued with a receipt which can be used to claim back from your medical aid.

For therapy, an invoice is sent out at the end of the month and payment can then be made via EFT or Snapscan (see your invoice for details).

For assessments (Psycho-Educational, ADHD & Career assessments) payment must be made on or before the assessment day. This can also be done via EFT, Snapscan or via card facilities available at my practice. 

It is advisable to contact your medical aid first to enquire about the availability of funds and the specific benefits of your particular medical aid plan (as not all medical aid plans make provision for psychology sessions.

THERAPY SESSIONS 

R850 per session

The length of the session will depend on the needs of the patient, however sessions are generally 50 minutes in duration.

EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENTS

R6000-R7000
(Varies according to medical aid)

Educational assessments are charged at standard medical aid rates to ensure their is no co-payment needed and include an initial intake interview with the parents, fully comprehensive assessment (approximately 7 hours and includes the most up to date psychometric tests e.g. WISC/WAIS & WIAT-III), a feedback session where we go through the report together & a comprehensive 25 page report. 

My assessments will cover a wide variety of potential learning barriers such as dyslexia, ADHD, developmental co-ordination disorder (dyspraxia) ,emotional concerns etc. I will then diagnose (if needed) and recommend holistic interventions for the home and school (e.g. extra time) based on my findings.
