coronavirus outbreak and your application for psychotherapy at the bpf

“Due to the present circumstances, the process of offering assessment consultations & referrals to the low fee service, mid fee service and general Clinical Services are significantly delayed. 

In addition, our usual clinical services will be temporarily limited as will shall not be available to answer phones calls in the office because we are working remotely. This is due to the recent Government guidelines concerning non-essential social contact, travel restrictions, the need for social isolation and social distancing. 

We are very sorry for any trouble this may cause and appreciate the impact that this may have on you.

We will be placing regular updates on the bpf website and hope to resume our regular service as soon as we can. Please feel free to email us should you need further information. We thank you for your patience in these difficult circumstances, and want to reassure you that we are doing all we can.”

the appplication process

  • Following your initial contact with Clinical Services and if there is a suitable vacancy on our intensive 3x weekly low fee service we will put you in contact with one of our Low Fee Service organisers.
  • After talking to the Low Fee Services organiser, if appropriate, you will be sent a questionnaire. Once this is returned along with your administration fee of £30 the Low Fee Service organiser will look at your questionnaire and if appropriate will arrange for you to have a consultation;
  • You will be offered a consultation with a senior therapist. This will provide you with an opportunity to explore your needs and readiness for intensive 3x weekly treatment; The fee for this consultation is £75 and if two meetings are required it will be £100. This payment is paid directly to the therapist offering you this appointment.
  • Reports may be requested, with your permission, if you have had previous contacts and consultations with similar services;
  • If it is decided that this is not the best form of treatment for you other options will be suggested;

Where possible we do our best to accommodate individual needs with regard to location and times available for therapy. Please note that the Low Fee Service is subject to availability.
