Qualified and friendly triage team to help you find the right option
Every year we help thousands of children and teenagers to find expert and compassionate care. Our consultant psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists have many years’ experience in diagnosing and treating child and teenage anxiety.
It’s clear the team know a lot about mental health and I feel that the Psychiatrist really understood Michael’s situation. Overall - a fantastic service, very professional, very friendly and we now have all the information we need to help Michael in the future. Thank you.
Josh started becoming more and more withdrawn – at first we thought it was just part of being a teenager, but things didn’t improve and it began to badly affect his school work and social life. It felt like we had lost our son. Taking Josh to see a Psychiatrist wasn’t an easy step – we were very nervous that we had somehow failed him. However, the Psychiatrist was really friendly and made us all feel at ease – it took all the ‘sting’ out of an incredibly worrying few years and I just wish we had sought help earlier.
I can’t thank Dr P. enough. Having a clear diagnosis for Adam has meant we now have the right support in place and have learnt some practical and effective ways of helping him with some of the daily challenges he experiences. The future looks much brighter now.
We weren’t sure what help Emily, our 12 year old, needed, we just knew she was growing increasingly anxious. The triage team were really helpful in identifying in helping us determine that a psychiatric assessment would be the most important first step. The Psychiatrist was able to develop a good relationship with our daughter who has great trust and faith in him. We could not have had a better service from them or your team.”
