If you have health insurance either privately or through work, you may want to check to see if your policy covers counselling therapy. Most policies have an annual allowance to see a registered therapist so your sessions would be paid for, minus any policy excess you may be liable for when you make a claim.

The content of the sessions is kept entirely confidential and no record of what is discussed is shared with your insurance provider.

Alex Pledger is registered to work with BUPAAviva, Vitality and Cigna.

To make a booking through your insurance provider you should contact them directly for authorisation details and then make contact with Alex by calling 07779 004292 or emailing.
