Do you accept insurance?

For individuals with private health insurance whose policy includes personal counselling, I am able to offer services that can be funded by your health insurance provider. The level of cover will vary from policy to policy and there may be some procedural differences between providers. It is important that you speak with your individual provider to ensure that personal counselling is covered by your policy.

As there are distinct differences between the referral process of the various insurance providers, please telephone me on 01279 83 44 67 to discuss the specific requirements of your provider.

Insurance providers regulate their approved practitioners and provide them with professional registration numbers. The registration numbers for the health insurance providers with whom I am currently approved are:

Norwich Union/Aviva: 600055364
Cigna Health Care:132119
Prudential Health: 3599118
Standard Life: Your individual policy number is used on a case by case basis.

Standard Life, Cygna Healthcare, Norwich Union/Aviva, Prudential Health
