Payment of Fees

Dr Catherine Lawrence will invoice Adoption Central England (ACE) for all fees for appointments.

Cancellation Policy

We require 48 hours’ notice to cancel a session. Where there is less notice, or you fail to attend your appointment, the full fee for that session will be incurred and will be taken from the approved ASF monies.

Dr Catherine Lawrence will endeavour to give you as much advance notice as possible for holidays or of any need to cancel a future appointment.

Confidentiality of Online Sessions

We do not allow for you to record sessions without prior consent.  Dr Catherine Lawrence will not be recording any of your sessions unless she has prior consent from you and this has been discussed and agreed and you have signed a consent form. 

We do not consent to you letting anyone else listen in to any part of the online session (via phone or any other technical device or in person) without prior agreement with us.


Please note that we are unable to respond in an emergency situation. If you need support in an emergency then please contact your GP, the emergency services, or adoption/duty social worker for immediate advice and support.

Mental health telephone support is available from the Samaritans on 116 123.
