Organising a consultation

  • A questionnaire will be sent to you following your contact with clinical services. You will be provided with information on how you should return it.
  • An administration fee of £60 will apply as part of the application process, payable directly to the bpf.
  • Once you have returned your completed questionnaire and admin fee, a consultation assessment will be arranged for you, if it is appropriate.
  • Should an assessment consultation not be appropriate for you a partial refund of £40.00 will apply.

A note about the admin fee and refunds

This admin fee is concerning the administration involved in arranging an initial assessment consultation with a senior therapist at the bpf.  A referral on to a therapist at the bpf for ongoing therapy usually follows this consultation; however, there are some circumstances where we make an alternative referral to another organisation or to your General Practitioner. The administration fee is not refundable in these circumstances.

  • During this consultation you will have the opportunity to talk about yourself and explore, with an experienced therapist, whether psychotherapeutic treatment at the bpf would be helpful for you.
  • This is often a one off meeting costing £90; however, if 2 consultations are required the fee will be no more than a total cost of £120. This fee is paid directly to the therapist at the time of the appointment and is not paid to the bpf.
  • If it seems appropriate after the initial consultation a referral will be made to a bpf therapist taking into account your personal circumstances.   
  • Fees for psychotherapeutic treatment do vary and you will have the opportunity to discuss fees with your therapist at the initial meeting.  At the present time standard fees tend to range between £55.00 and £75.00 per session. This is only a guideline and does change from time to time.
