Fees

NB: Please read the information below regarding payment/medical aid

I operate as a cash practice and therefore the patient (or parent) is responsible for the payment of therapy sessions directly. Once payment has been received you will be issued with a receipt which can be used to claim back from your medical aid

For therapy, an invoice is sent out at the end of the month and payment can then be made via EFT  (see your invoice for details). Regarding PMB patients, I submit directly to medical aid so that no upfront payment is needed from you. 

For assessments (Psycho-Educational or Adult ADHD) payment must be made before or on the assessment day. This must be done via EFT (details provided on the intake form).  

It is advisable to contact your medical aid first to enquire about the availability of funds and the specific benefits of your particular medical aid plan (as not all medical aid plans make provision for psychology sessions).

Our assessments will cover a wide variety of potential learning barriers such as dyslexia, ADHD, developmental co-ordination disorder (dyspraxia) ,emotional concerns etc. We will then diagnose (if needed) and recommend holistic interventions for the home and school (e.g. extra time) based on the findings.   

* Please ensure that you contact your medical aid in order to confirm whether they will cover costs for psychological sessions. Educational assessments are charged above standard medical aid rates and therefore will not reimburse fully.
