HOW MAY I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT
You are welcome to call me on my mobile phone 083 2279343 and leave a confidential message on my answering service if I am not available. I will call you back as soon as possible. If I do not contact you by the following day, kindly try to call again because it means that I did not get your message or I could not understand the contact details because the line was disturbed. SMSs or e-mails at firstname.lastname@example.org are also acceptable ways to make contact. My land line is very seldom answered!
DO YOU CONSULT AFTER HOURS AND ON WEEKENDS?
Yes, I work until late in the evening whenever it is necessary and I take Saturday appointments.
ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR TELEPHONIC EMERGENCY CONSULTATIONS?
Yes, I am mostly available after hours and on weekends except if I am consulting. I always return calls, even if at times only later. In case of life threatening emergencies when I am not available, rely on your closest hospital or clinic.
DOES MY MEDICAL AID PAY FOR IT?
Yes, most medical aids have benefits for psychotherapy if conducted by a Clinical Psychologist. I can claim directly from the medical aid, provided that you have available benefits and I will claim according to the medical aid fee structure. However the limits for the benefit vary drastically from one medical aid to another and from one plan to another. Some medical aids need to approve a treatment plan before they pay, others don’t. It is advisable to check with your medical aid what your benefits are and if they need any pre-authorisation. Some conditions are accepted for extensions of benefits on application by the attending Clinical Psychologist.
