Seek help for mental health disorders from our Consultant Psychologists
A comprehensive psychology assessment will be provided to evaluate all factors relevant to a person’s current experience.
Our team evaluates the difficulties presently impacting on a patient's life and work to develop an individually tailored plan built from evidence-based psychological models. The service can also provide private psychological evaluations prior to surgical procedures and medico-legal reports for the courts.
The service is open to any adult and adolescent seeking help with emotional difficulties, such as:
Neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism spectrum disorder/Asperger’s Syndrome and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is assessed, diagnosed and advice given.
The private psychology service can further provide help with managing physical health problems, such as cancer, chronic pain, fatigue, functional symptoms, obesity and medically unexplained symptoms.
The service is accessed via direct GP referral or self-referral by contacting the hospital.
National Clinical guidelines such as SIGN and NICE for certain psychological health problems are quite clear in their recommendations, others depend on the individual person and their difficulties. Generally, one or two psychological treatment sessions can be sufficient to offer advice on how to manage mild problems, whilst moderate psychological problems can be treated in 6-8 sessions. For complex difficulties, further sessions may be required.
If you are paying for yourself, we can usually offer an upfront cost which you can then choose to pay in full or access one of our easy payment options.
If you have insurance, we can arrange direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
