Making an Appointment
Deciding whether to make an initial psychology appointment can be daunting but there is no obligation to commit beyond the first meeting. The initial appointment provides an opportunity to focus on individual needs, to think together about the issues raised and to determine what kind of approach will work best. Having in mind the many types of psychotherapy that exist, if an alternative seems likely to be of more benefit, Dr Willner will be able to make a recommendation or refer on to another practitioner.
Direct self-referrals are welcome or referrals can be made by a GP, Psychiatrist or other medical practitioner.
Daytime or evening appointments can usually be arranged within one week.
Funding and Fees
Dr Willner is an Approved Provider with the leading health insurance companies including Bupa, AXA-PPP, Standard Life, Pruhealth, Aviva, Cigna and WPA. She also accepts those who can self-fund. Dr Willner’s costs are competitive and can be discussed prior to an initial consultation.
If claiming through health insurers, it is advisable to obtain authorisation in advance. A GP or Consultant Specialist referral is often required.
Appointments that are not attended or cancelled with less than 48 hours notice will incur the full session fee.
