Payment of Fees

Dr Catherine Lawrence will invoice Adoption Central England (ACE) and Children’s Services for all fees for appointments on a monthly basis.

Cancellation Policy

We ask for at least 48 hours’ notice to cancel or change a session.

Where there is less than 24 hours’ notice, or if you fail to attend your appointment (DNA), the full fee for that session will be incurred and will be taken from the approved ASF/Children’s Services monies.

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

Unexpected Unavailability of Therapist

If your work is interrupted due to your therapist having unexpected long term unavailability, either Dr Lawrence or another Clinical Psychologist, will be in touch with you to let you know so you can contact ACE and discuss finding another provider.

Confidentiality of Online Sessions

We do not allow for you to record sessions without prior consent.  We will not be recording any of your sessions unless we have 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.
