Referral Service

Screening / Recommendation Service

I’m conscious that it can be very difficult to find the right psychologist to help. For example,

What type of therapy would work best for you/your child?
Is the therapist experienced at assisting in your area of need?
Do they have availability at the times that would work for you for appointments?
What is the difference between a psychologist, a therapist and a counsellor?

Given this, in addition to my clinic, I have set up a screening/recommendation service to help answer these questions and help you find the best clinician for you or your child. The screening process simply involves answering a few questions over email and us having a 10-20min discussion over the phone to help me ascertain who would be best to help.

Having qualified in 2010 and worked privately now for over ten years, I’ve built connections with a number of other Psychologists based all around the country (and some in Scotland!).  All these associates are HCPC registered Psychologists with a high level of experience. Combined, the Psychologists I know have a vast array of experience in different fields and difficulties. This ensures that at the end of the screening process, I can hopefully refer you to a psychologist who is specialised at helping with your specific difficulty. All psychologists work online (some in-person too), and as research has shown online video calls to be at least as effective as in-person, it means I can signpost you to someone who is best placed to help with the difficulties specific to you, rather than be restricted by the specialisms of those local to you.

You will not be charged for this screening service and currently, some of the psychologists I link with have immediate availability.

Finally, I understand the therapeutic relationship is an important relationship. Although I will try to match you with a psychologist I think would be best to help, I could be wrong. Given this, I will always be on hand to assist if you wish to try another psychologist, or wish a discussion about who may adopt a different style that you feel would be best for you.

Any questions, as always, just ask and I would be more than happy to discuss further.
