Welcome to Clinical Partners Psychological Services
Psychology is the study of the human mind – the way we think, act and behave.
Psychologists use different therapeutic methods to help people overcome their problems and get things back on track.
Why Clinical Partners?
Because you can trust us to arrange for you to see a friendly and expert clinician who can help you.
Our Clinical Team of over 200 Partners are based all over the UK. They provide thousands of outpatient appointments and reports every year, and we can usually see you within a few days.
We choose our Partners carefully. They are all highly trained and experienced, but they’re also the ones that patients keep telling us they like working with, as well as their clinical expertise they have the warmth and love of their work that makes them really effective.
If you think that therapy could be helpful to you and aren’t sure where to start then just call us on 0203 326 9160– we’re here to help.
Don’t worry if you aren’t sure which one is right for you, we will advise you on which therapies might be suitable.

What to expect from your psychology appointment
Different therapies will require more or less sessions, and sometimes they can be different durations. CBT often involves some homework for you to take away with you. Some psychology sessions will involve psychometric tests which are essentially a series of questions that help the psychologist understand how you think.
Although psychologists and psychotherapists often do exactly the same work, sometimes using the same therapies, more often you will find that psychologists tend to work cognitively. That means they are inclined to use more rational therapies that examine and work with how you think in the here and now. Psychotherapists are more likely to work with your history, and examine how our life experience affects how you live today.
Many psychologists and psychotherapists have spent the same amount of time in training, are equally qualified, and may well use both cognitive and rational therapies.
We think it’s important to get the fit right, so we’re looking for the right kind of psychologist for you, depending on what their specialism is, how you and they work, and other factors such as yours and their gender. At the end of your first session with the psychologist they will have formed an initial impression of what you might benefit from, and they will make a recommendation which is often to have 6 or so sessions and then review progress. If you’re happy to start, then they will book you in for your next session and the work begins.
