Sessions, fees and packages
Sessions are tailored to suit you as an individual, and are usually 1 hour to 1.5 hours.
Packages are based on an initial 2 hour session, followed by 5 follow up sessions of 1 hour (ideally weekly or fortnightly).
For a one off session the fee is £80
Package fees are £480 and any follow up appointments are at a reduced rate of £60
The fee includes not only my time spent with you, but also goes towards the overheads that I have to keep up – the membership to professional bodies and insurance, my CPD (Continual Professional Development) that I have to do each year, which keeps my skills and practice up-to-date and moving forward, general overheads that all businesses have, for example tax and National Insurance.
It is my wish that no one is priced out of help. In the grand scheme of private IVF costs, I feel that I provide a service that is a tiny fraction of that cost. If anyone is of means tested benefits and would like to speak to me about help being more accessible, please do let me know.
Payment and cancellation policies.
Payment is preferred prior to the appointment and then the full time is given to your needs, and you are not thinking about remembering to pay at the end. (Feedback from clients has made me decide this is the best way to do it)
Packages are paid in advance, and although it is better for you to see me weekly/fortnightly, there is only a time limit of a year, to take the pressure off you.
I have limited timeslots each week, so to be fair to other client’s, I ask that at least 48 hours notice of cancellation is given if possible. 24 hours or less will be charged for at the rate at the time. Time slots cannot be filled at such short notice normally.
Appointments (depending on availability/bookings) are between the hours of 10am and 3pm Monday to Friday. Weekends or evenings are saved for family time, but in exceptional cases I can see some clients some Sundays or evenings, but this will be charged at a higher rate due to my out of hours childcare costs.
