The assessment includes a three and a half hour appointment with a Consultant Neurodevelopmental Paediatrician which involves the ADOS-2 being undertaken jointly with specialist Speech and Language Therapist or Clinical Psychologist.

Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy/Play Therapy

Initial Consultation: £135 followed by Full Assessment: £175

Parents and carers often worry when a child has a problem that causes them to be sad, disruptive, rebellious, unable to cope or inattentive. You may be concerned about a child’s development, or how they are getting along with family, friends and at school. The 90 minute initial consultation is with the child’s carer or carers to discuss the child’s symptoms and presenting behaviours and any helpful background information. A one to two hour home-based assessment of the child or adolescent and their family follows this consultation (£170), which offers an opportunity for the therapist to be introduced to the individual in a familiar environment and for the therapist to observe how the child or adolescent copes within the family, as regards sibling relationships etc. Additional travel and mileage costs will be added dependent on the location of the assessment.

Therapy sessions: £90

Therapy sessions are weekly and last 45 minutes. The child or adolescent will be invited to explore play activities which appeal to them. These could cover a range of activities such as drawing, painting, puppets, role play, stories, simple board games and sand tray (a small sand filled box that uses miniature figures and objects as helpful props to access the individual’s ‘inner world’). Through the use of the arts, activities and in conversation, the therapist, alongside the child or adolescent, will gently encourage the individual to explore and make connections to their feelings in a safe and appropriate way.

Any additional time such as meetings, reviews, or calls, will be charged on a pro rata basis.

Clinical Psychology

Initial assessment session: £175

This appointment type is with Clinician Psychologist, Dr Niccie Le Roux and is 90 minutes long taking place over online video link. The assessment appointment involves having an informal conversation with parents/carers and the young person/child about their strengths, the difficulties they experience, any relevant history and what they hope to achieve from Psychology input. Some of the difficulties that Niccie works with include worries and anxieties, fears/phobia, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, low mood, self-esteem, attachment bereavement, adoption, trauma, sleep, behaviours linked to neurodevelopmental conditions and changes to personal circumstances. Parents/carers/children may also be asked to complete some questionnaires. Depending on the referral, the clinician may suggest meeting with parents/carers for the initial assessment appointment on their own, and then agree on how/if to include your child/children in subsequent appointments. If the presenting issues are not suitable for Psychology input, this will be discussed with the family in a transparent way, and where possible alternative therapeutic intervention would be recommended. Liaison work and associated costs will be agreed on a case by case basis.

Therapy sessions: £115

This appointment type is with Clinician Psychologist, Dr Niccie Le Roux and is 50 minutes long taking place over online video link. The format of the 50 minute appointments is flexible dependent on the individual needs of the client, and may be 1:1 with the clinician and child/young person, or with the clinician and parents/carers. Liasing with children’s schools/other agencies or with the family as a whole may also be appropriate. This is not because family members, carers, or school staff are perceived to be the ‘problem’, but rather that working closely with the relationships around a child typically fosters enduring change, reduces parental stress and facilitates a better quality of family life.

Families often ask how many appointments would be necessary in order to achieve the change they are hoping for. This varies significantly from one case to another: for most children/young people/families it takes multiple appointments in order to develop a trusting relationship with a therapist, and achieving change depends on multiple factors including the complexity and severity of the presenting difficulties. Please note that from the outset the clinicians aim is to establish indicators to help identify when psychology input would no longer be needed.

Written reports: £210

Written reports requested in relation to ongoing therapy or Clinical Psychology assessment.

Meetings e.g. school/multi-agency network meetings: £210

Dr Niccie Le Roux is able to offer meeting up to a maximum of 90 minutes. The clinical time is at a cost of £210. If travel is required for the meeting, the costs are 45p/mile to the meeting location and back to Starjumpz. Travel time will be costed at £85/hour pro rata.
