A standard appointment is 60 to 75 minutes long and costs £90. Sometimes sessions take considerably longer or shorter and they may then be charged accordingly. For those paid for by private medical insurance the full rate is £100 per session. For those coming at reduced rates, costs are usually £80, £65 or £50 depending on income. Due to increased numbers coming at these rates, it is now necessary to limit the total number of reduced rate sessions to a maximum of 10 per person, and to limit the reduced fee to a minimum of £50 per session. All these costs compare well with fees typically charged for private medical consultations which are usually at least £120–240 per hour.
If your treatment involves books, tapes or supplements, the cost will be added to your account. When appropriate, initial & final letters to your GP are free of charge. You will however be charged for the time taken to complete other correspondence and phone calls. At times it is possible to monitor and advise on how you are responding to treatment by telephone or email. This obviously saves considerably on the expense and travel involved for a normal appointment. However it does take quite a lot of Dr. Hawkins's time. When it's appropriate, you can choose a telephone or email appointment instead of a normal one. Only the actual time taken for these follow up consultations is charged for.
reductions & donations
James doesn't want to turn people away for financial reasons - especially if effective treatment is not readily available elsewhere. If you find it a problem paying, please say so as it should be possible to give reductions. If it isn't a problem paying, do please consider making an additional donation to help those unable to manage the standard charges.
