Services & Billing
We aim to deliver your care in a way that is affordable and have tried to develop a payment process that is clear and affordable. We are happy for people to step into or out of our care pathways as they wish. We are willing to accept diagnoses from other services so long as they are well evidenced with information to the standard we expect of ourselves.
At present we only offer online consultation however we are working on bring our services to local clinical spaces. When this is available the costs of in person consultation will increase to reflect the costs of providing a safe and private environment for our meetings. We do not currently offer home visits.

Online Initial Assessment - £150
The hour-long Initial Assessment is required for anyone wanting to use our services. It explores your strengths and needs, making recommendations for more than just a diagnostic assessment. We aim to help you to address the challenges not just identify symptoms of diagnoses and then give a medication.
You will receive
a report which outlines our recommendations
the options you have in meeting the needs we identify
not just with us but other potential providers too for comparison.
one month's access to our internet community, The Exchange.
This assessment is detailed enough to give you an idea of what value there is in pursuing more expensive assessments but does not confirm any diagnosis.
Online Diagnostic Assessment - £150 per hour
We offer assessment for a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism to people over 7 years old. An assessment takes between two and five hours per diagnosis usually. This is why we charge by the hour and using a "pay as you go" approach. We don't think that you should pay a flat rate because assessments can take variable times depending on the issues and the detail of information you provide on the forms that we send to you. You pay at the point of booking each appointment and your assessor can guide you with this is necessary.
You will receive
a diagnostic report which outlines our full diagnosis
recommendations for treatment and support
a refund of the funds we don't charge or
you can keep this on your account towards treatment
This document is written to a standard that ensures that any other clinician can clearly see our rationale, avoiding the need to repeat the assessment if you choose to switch provider.
We will not charge more than £1500 for a single diagnostic assessment and not more than £2000 if more than one diagnosis is assessed, however we aim to keep the cost as low as possible, whilst maintaining a quality assessment standard.
Online Medication Review - £75 per half hour
Medication review appointments usually last half an hour. We don't think that you should pay a flat rate because optimising treatment can take variable times depending on the issues. Again this is done on a "pay as you go" basis, billed at the point of booking the appointment. You can choose how you contact us and after the first six minutes we will invoice for the time taken in 6 minute periods (£15).
If Shared Care Agreement is likely to be necessary we can discuss this with your GP surgery prior to starting treatment so that you can enter into treatment feeling confident that there won't be any surprise costs when treatment is stabilised. We can't make your GP accept Shared Care but we can discuss any concerns they might have prior to starting.
You should keep in mind that you will have to pay dispensing and drug costs if prescribed treatments privately. These usually range between £50-£150 per month depending on the recommended treatment, but can be even higher than this in some cases.
We will write to your GP following every review and send you a copy.
Assistant Practitioners - £35 per hour
We have experienced assistant practitioners to support with education and workplace advocacy. If you need their help this will be outlined in your initial assessment plan and we will keep you informed of costs as the plan progresses. You will be billed monthly for this support.
We may ask an assistant to make observations at school for a diagnostic assessment.
We may allocate an assistant to deliver specific supportive or therapeutic work following an evidence based programme.
costs will be outlined in your Initial Assessment Plan
We offer other supports and work with partner agencies who have their own fees. These will be outlined in your Initial Assessment plan if we are recommending any.
If we recommend someone it is because we think that their service is right for you.
Group Work - £75 per course
Where we offer group based work we charge a fee of £10 per session and these groups will usually run for six sessions. We ask for the full fee to be paid at the start of the course.
Training - ask us
We deliver planned and bespoke training and these are costed individually to account for the delivery and planning time.
