1. EMDR and Individual Therapy:
If you had a nurturing childhood and have a single trauma to reprocess, such as a car accident or an assault, your treatment could be 3-4 sessions and I usually arrange one session per week per person. If you have a history of abuse, neglect, or both, and you have many traumatic memories to reprocess, then your therapy could take longer. In some instances, I can arrange for more than one session per week. It depends on every person’s needs and circumstances. 
I charge according to the Medical Aid rates for Social Workers. My practice is a cash practice. You pay me after the session and I provide a receipt which you then claim back from your Medical Aid. An EMDR session is 90 minutes long and costs R650.00 per session. The costs for young children under the age of 10 years are R450.00 per session of 60 minutes. 
The full fee is due if appointments are broken with less than 24 hours’ notice. Please cancel in time by SMS, WhatsApp text, or call or email me, to enable me to give other people on the waiting list the benefit of an appointment.

2. The Clinical Child Assessment
  • A 2+ hours session with the child and the parents - Costs are per Medical Aid rates. ( As per the duration of the Assessment process.) 
  • Processing of the assessment information after the assessment by the therapist and a feedback session with the parents (during a separate appointment) will be a 60 minutes (R450.00) to 90 minutes (R650.00) session. 
  • When you end your involvement before the finalization of the Clinical Assessment you will be responsible to pay for the sessions the therapist completed with you or your child. 
  • If a detailed report is requested (e.g. for Court or School purposes etc.) the costs will be extra. Please discuss with the therapist.

3. Parenting Assessment
  • ± 6 to 8 assessment sessions per person or per parent. The cost is R650.00 per 90 minute session.
  • Observation sessions + Feedback of the interaction between the parents individually and their children -  R400.00 per hour.  Travel costs - R5.00 per km.
  • If a report is requested please contact the therapist.
  • If the therapist needs to attend court proceedings or other related meetings the cost will be R400.00 per hour.

Travel Costs etc.
If the arrangement is made that I have to see you at your place of choice, you will be responsible for the travel costs, R5.00 per km and if necessary, the stay-over costs of the therapist. This arrangement can be cost-effective for people who live far away if more people want to make use of my services during such a visit. It is negotiable with me. If traveling is requested in the Port Elizabeth area the travel costs will also be R5.00 per km. Far-away places would be the cost of a return flight and the stay over accommodation.
