Clinical Services

Unfortunately we are not taking any new clinical referrals at the current time. You may find the links on the useful links page helpful for other sources of help.

At  Drawing on trainings in Clinical and Forensic Psychology, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Group Psychotherapy as well as Research, we use clinical experience as well as the theoretical understandings of Psychology and Psychotherapy to inform our work.

Clinical Assessment/Consultation
If you are thinking about beginning psychotherapy, then an initial consultation is often a good starting point.  A consultation will give you an opportunity to talk about what is currently troubling you and will also provide a setting where you can think about factors that might have contributed to your difficulties or may have provided the foundations for repeated patterns that get in the way of development and fulfilment. Current life situations and relationships as well as life history, social and family circumstances impact on people in many ways.

The kinds of experiences that people may bring to a consultation are very diverse and may include the following: relationship difficulties; bereavement; anxiety and depression; personality difficulties; experience of trauma, abuse or violence; sexual difficulties; experience of prejudice and discrimination; feelings of anger and rage; and many more.

Many therapists and psychotherapy organisations offer this kind of initial consultation.  Use the useful links page to access relevant organisations, including their “find a therapist” search tools.    You can also speak to your GP who will know about local services.
