How We Can Help

Did you know about our private clinic? We can help your patients quickly. Our clinicians are all highly experienced and worked for years in the NHS.

Sometimes the NHS is not giving your patients the service you would like. Do you think your patients would recover faster with more help for their depression and anxiety? Are they self-treating with alcohol or another substance?

We see self-payers and also the many patients who are insured either individually or by their employers.
