CBT Newtownabbey

Obviously, cost is an issue for most people. Below, we have set out a scale of charges to reflect the various circumstances of peoples' treatment. Because CBT Newtownabbey is not a large company, this enables us to pass on considerable savings to our clients. Nevertheless, charging must still account for normal overheads such as rent, heat etc, as well as the therapist's time. Bear in mind also that the therapist will often be attending to your case outside of the sessions (eg. preparing material / checking to ensure your case is making maximum progress, etc). On some occasions he may also seek feedback about your case from a colleague, to ensure you are getting the best treatment for your problem; (you must sign your agreement if you want this to happen). Another point to note is that generally a greater proportion of the more intense work-load falls in the earlier sessions as the therapist establishes all the significant issues and the various inter-connections etc; as these issues become more clear, the work-load does become less intense, and costing has to reflect this. All things considered, we believe these charges represent a fair price for what can often be a life enhancing experience.
