NB: Please read the information below regarding payment/medical aid
I operate as a cash practice and therefore the patient (or parent) is responsible for the payment of therapy 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 (see your invoice for details). Regarding PMB patients, I submit directly to medical aid so that no upfront payment is needed from you.
For assessments (Psycho-Educational or Adult ADHD) payment must be made before or on 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).
Please scroll to the bottom of the page to read my cancellation policy.
R900 per session
The length of the session will depend on the needs of the patient, however sessions are generally 50 minutes in duration.
Please note I am happy to accept and/or apply for appropriate PMB patients.
Educational assessments are charged at standard medical aid rates to ensure there 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 20+ 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.
ADULT ADHD ASSESSMENTS
This assessment includes a 90 minute consultation in which the nature of the concern is explored, background history is collected and a 2 quantitative assessments are conducted (CAARS & WAIS-IV selected subtests). The findings are then explained to the patient during an additional online consultation. The fee above is all inclusive and redeemable from medical aid (plan permitting).
Cancellations and rescheduling of appointments must be made no later than 24 hours prior to appointments. A fee will be charged for late cancellations or missed appointments. Please also note that this fee will not be covered by the medical aid schemes and therefore will need to be settled out of pocket.
