What are the benefits of seeking private psychological services?

  • You can self-refer
  • There is no waiting list; appointments can usually be offered within 1 to 2 weeks of contact being made. Often less if you require contact via Skype.
  • The number of sessions you arrange will always be within your control.
  • You can arrange appointments outside of working hours.
  • We can make recommendations for NHS based services or other specialist services in particular areas if required.
  • You will be able to make direct contact with your Psychologist in-between sessions if required.
