First Appointment and Returning Patients (over 12 months)

£99.00
Includes, where relevant, initial assessment, osteopathic evaluation of condition, advice upon alternative options to osteopathic treatment and treatment with me, if treatment is an option.

Follow up treatments

£90.00
Follow up appointments are based around 40 minute slots but just like your dentist it can sometimes take a bit longer or, if you’re lucky, be quicker! After all, you wouldn’t ask your dentist to keep drilling once the job is done, would you?!

Book and pay for your next 4 treatments in advance, you get the follow up treatments for £81.00 each.

Why not come regularly ? Book and pay for a monthly loosen up in advance £85.00 per session.

Naturally, if you are booking and paying in advance certain rules and conditions will apply. Please ask before deciding if it’s a good idea for you. A lot of practitioners will offer a course of 10 at a reduced rate knowing full well you are unlikely to use them all!

Private Medical Insurance

I am recognised by and registered with many of the major Insurance Companies and as such you should be eligible to recoup some or all of your treatment costs from your insurer.

AXA/PPP, Simply Health and BUPA Policy holders from 30th November 2016

Please refer to your insurers terms and conditions.

You can still see me privately but unfortunately your insurer will probably NOT pay toward your treatment.

Please note only pre authorised insurance claims can be accepted.
