“When someone really hears you without passing judgement on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mould you, it feels good… When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on. It is astonishing how elements which seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens. How confusions which seem irremediable turn into relatively clear flowing streams when one is heard”.
~ Carl Rogers

Fee Information (self-investment cost)
I am contracted to all medical aids and can claim directly on your behalf.
Alternatively, there is a cash discount option.
Please note that fees will increase annually as guided by medical aid tariffs.
Medical aid claims made on the client’s behalf
I am contracted to all medical aids, at medical aid rates (as decided by each individual medical aid).
I can claim directly on your behalf, this is usually paid from your medical aid savings depending on what medical aid you are with.
Should you be seeking therapy due to depression, an eating disorder or a recent trauma (medical aids require evidence for the trauma), we could then explore a prescribed minimum benefit (PMB) for you on your medical aid plan. This effectively swaps inpatient psychiatric care for outpatient therapy sessions without tapping into your medical aid savings, it is paid in full by the PMB. Most of the main stream medical aids offer a PMB option on the medical aid plans. However, you must meet the diagnostic requirements for a PMB condition.
Please note it is the client’s responsibility to ensure that their medical aid scheme provides for outpatient psychology sessions. Should funds run out the client is ultimately responsible for the outstanding account.
Cash payment for non-medical aid members
A cash discount is available for non-medical aid members.
The 2021 payable is R1060.00 per session.
Payment is required at the end of the session day.
Virtual reality therapy cost
Due to the equipment and report required for a virtual reality therapy session- a VRT session would require a cash-in-hand co-payment of R100 above the regular medical aid or cash rate.
24-hour cancellation policy
Please note that I have a 24-hour cancellation policy.
A session cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice will be charged in full.
