Healthcare Insurance

Your health insurance policy may cover you for sessions in psychological therapies or counselling. I am currently registered with a number of insurance companies including AXA PPP, Aviva, Standard Life, CIGNA, and Vitality.

If you wish to fund your sessions using your health insurance, you will need to contact your insurance provider who will be able to tell you if your policy covers psychological work – often referred to as ‘psychiatric benefit’ – and advise you on what to do next.

Each insurance company has its own procedures for authorising counselling, CBT or psychotherapy. Some companies require a GP or psychiatrist (a medical doctor who specialises in mental illness) to refer you to a qualified psychologist while others are happy to refer you themselves.

If your insurer agrees to fund your sessions, they will inform you of any requirements with regards to the type of practitioner allowable under their terms (I am a HCPC Registered Psychologist) and they will provide you with an authorisation code. 

You will need to provide your membership number and an authorisation code when you book your first appointment.

NB: Any insurance excess due must be settled at the commencement of the engagement. 

I don’t take your words merely as words, Far from it, I listen to what makes you talk.
Whatever that is – And me listen
