Consultation 

For clients experiencing significant difficulties or with complex history we may recommend a consultation with one of our psychologists.  This will enable us to understand your current situation better and recommend the most effective intervention for you.

Direct Access Therapy

For clients who may already possess insight into why they are experiencing  challenges in their life or those clients who are experiencing less severe emotional difficulties at present we may refer you to one of our counsellors or psychotherapists.

FAQ

Do I need a referral?

As we are a private practice you may self refer and do not require your GP or other healthcare practitioner to refer you to us.

Do I need to have a consultation before receiving therapy?

Not always. We might recommend you see a psychologist if you have specific challenges or unable to fully describe your current situation. Psychologists are trained and experienced to formulate effective treatment plans that may involve more than one type of intervention.

What payment methods do you have?

In order for us to confirm your appointment the bill payer must have informed us of their preferred payment method. They can do this by using our Client Forms on our website.

We offer clients two payment methods, our automatic payment method and our pre-pay method. Further information on both can be found under our Fees page on our website

How many sessions can I have?

Our services are open and so as long as both you and the psychologists, counsellor or therapist believes is appropriate there is no session limit.

What is the difference between a counsellor, a therapist and a psychologist?

The short answer is a counsellor focsses on things that are affecting you now and are often led by what clients wish to discuss. A Psychotherapist will look deeper into your past and try to help you process negaitve events to enable you to move forward. Psychologists work with people suffering from mental disorders or psychological distress and often specialise in a particular type of assessment or therapy, such as cognitive behavioural therapy or neuropsychology. They provide consultancy throughout the NHS and in private settings and can diagnose mental health conditions.
