Here's how Jonathan charges his fees for consultations when you visit him in his clinic. For telephone or skype consultation fees click here.
The first consultation in the clinic takes longer than for treatments and is charged on the time taken at £100 per hour, pro-rata.
This means that if the first consultation - ie the time taken to reach a diagnosis and explain possible treatment strategies, even if this extends over more than one session - is 45 minutes, the cost will be £75. If it lasts 90 minutes, the cost will be £150.
Please note, the first consultation seldom lasts less than one hour and often extends well into the second hour, which means that the cost for it is usually between £100 and £200.
The first consultation is often the most important, since if a correct diagnosis is made then, you are likely to need less treatment to get better.
If there is insufficient time to complete what Jonathan needs for this, the 'first' consultation may continue at a later time or date, until Jonathan is sure of his diagnosis.
To give a rough guide, the first consultation often costs between £100 and £150. This is on the basis of a first consultation lasting between one hour and one and a half hours. The rate is pro-rata.
If it is possible, it is appropriate, you would like it and there is time to treat you during your first consultation, this is charged at £50.
If a room has to be hired by us to see you on a day outside the normal Monday or Wednesday morning consultation day, there will also be an hourly charge for this.
After the first consultation or treatment, the usual rate for each subsequent acupuncture, homoeopathic or Chinese herbal session is £60. (This assumes the time involved is not excessive. If, for some reason a session has to extend far beyond the usual time, an additional charge may be requested.)
Most treatment sessions last less than one hour.
If you haven't been to see Jonathan for a long time, by which is meant some years, of if there has been a major change in your condition which requires a very full re-assessment, then the rates for a First Consultation - see above - will probably apply.
(If you are seeing Jonathan for QXC1, then the rate is always £120 per hour, pro-rata.)
If you are prescribed herbs which are supplied through Jonathan, there will be extra costs.
Homoeopathic remedies, if supplied via Jonathan, are not charged for unless they have to be specially obtained or made for you.

All the books in the 'Chinese Medicine in English' series should be fully accessible on Kindles and Kindle apps. (Or you can buy the softback print editions, of course.)
('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)
If, having read one of my books you can write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.
You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.
And if you think it was terrible?
Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)
Here are some of the books I (Jonathan) have written.
Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited can borrow the first four for 'free'.
Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine!
Six Reviews so far for Yuck Phlegm. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
3000 years of Chinese being stressed, and at last, here's a book showing how all that experience can help you!
By the author of this website, it explains in simple English how to use stress to improve and enhance your life.
NB You can also order 'Qi Stagnation - Signs of Stress' from your bookseller.
