How do I know if I need to see a psychiatrist, psychologist or psychotherapist?
Many people who call us aren’t sure what they need. Don’t worry about that, you can just call us and explain what has been going on, and we’ll advise you what we think will be most helpful for you.
Our telephones are answered by assistant psychologists and psychotherapists and they are very experienced in helping our clients.
Standard adult psychiatric appointment
Appointment length - The standard appointment is between 60 and 75 mins long and this is usually long enough to reach a conclusion. For those with very complex situations extra time can be beneficial We’ll discuss with you if we think a longer appointment might be helpful.
Nerves - It’s natural to feel a bit apprehensive, but rest assured we select all our clinicians based on their expertise and their ability to make clients feel at ease, so don’t worry, they will look after you.
Take notes - Your psychiatrist will be sent the information we take over the telephone when you book your appointment, but you may wish to make a note of any questions or issues you are struggling with to make sure you feel you have covered all your concerns.
Prescriptions - If the Psychiatrist recommends a medication in the report then you can ask your NHS GP if they will be willing to prescribe it. In our experience your GP will be likely to prescribe in most circumstances upon receipt of your Psychiatrist’s report, although they will often refuse to prescribe more expensive medications such as those for ADHD.
