  • Fees are subject to change without notification. Fees will increase annually on the 1st of January in line with Retail Price Index/consumer price index/inflation. No discount or concessionary rate can be given. You are paying for expertise and integrity. Even if treatment is not deemed appropriate, the session fee will still apply. 

  • Please give at least 24-hours work weekday notice if cancelling/re-arranging an off-peak appointment and 48-hours work weekday notice if cancelling/re-arranging an on-peak appointment, otherwise the full fee will have to be kept. Unfortunately no exceptions can be given. 

  • Please appreciate, we only generate income from bookings. If they are not attended, we can not always fill them at late notice, and we might have had to turn away patients because our diaries were full. We genuinely don’t like to charge – but we are a business too! We do not always have the resources to consider exceptional circumstances either – that would require administrative staff that would invariably put up treatment prices by an average of £7.50 / session. We feel at this time – this is the fairest and simplest policy to offer exceptional quality of private care at prices that can be afforded. Genuinely where we can re-arrange your appointment at no charge we will try our best, even at the last minute. But please accept we cannot always offer this.

  • Please arrive ahead of all appointments. If you are more than 5 minutes late - will will not be able to treat you.
