Counselling style support
Initial consultation by skype or at our Centre: £125. At your home if you live within 8 miles of our Centre: £150. Your session will last between 60 and 120 minutes and we will have a chat about why you are seeking support. This may be with just your teen, with you and your teen or just you at this point.
Follow up sessions: £75 per session, £400 for six sessions or £700 for twelve session. We offer reduced rates where finance is the only barrier to you or a member of your family receiving support.
Where you require more than one initial consultation or ongoing support for your family we will design this to your needs.
After your initial consultation we will discuss whether we think your teen requires a more thorough assessment of need or whether we can move straight in to counselling style support, if this is appropriate.
More intensive support
Some families come to us knowing that they would like an ABA (applied behaviour analysis) or VB (verbal behaviour) programme for their teen or adult. In this case your initial observation will be slightly different. This is because we want to gather as much information as we possible can do so as we can clearly guide on the next steps. Although every programme we design is individual, the way that we get started is always the same and this is always with an assessment. We have three options for this:
Option one is where we spend 1-2 hours in an interview type situation asking you lots of questions. This is usually at our clinic or via Skype but can be arranged for your house depending on where you live. We also spend 1-2 hours with your son or daughter in your typical environment at home just observing you doing normal life. The cost for this is £250.
Option two is where we spend 1-2 hours in the interview situation and then 3-4 hours with you which consists of 1-2 directly with your son or daughter and 1-2 with you in your typical environment. This costs £400.
Option three is the interview component plus two 3-4 hour observations across two environments, such as both school and home. School or college would be a completely naturalistic observation whereby your son or daughter and peers do not know why we are there. The cost for this is £650.
Following your observation(s) we would meet with you to discuss our thoughts and recommendations for assessments/interventions/supports.
Travel expenses are incurred where we travel more than 10 miles from our clinic base in Epsom.
