What is clinical psychology?

Clinical psychology is an area of psychology that involves assessing and treating people with a wide range of mental and behavioural health problems. Clinical psychologists work with people of all ages and backgrounds to diagnose and treat any issues that are affecting a person’s emotional well-being and causing problems in their daily lives.

Children, young adults, adults and older adults can all benefit from working with a clinical psychologist. Clinical psychology treatments can help with a wide range of illnesses and conditions, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Social problems
  • Phobias
  • Addictions
  • Child developmental and behavioural issues
  • Relationship problems 
  • Difficulty adjusting to physical illnesses
  • Learning disabilities

Clinical psychologists are very experienced mental health professionals with a doctorate in clinical psychology. It usually takes between six and nine years for a person to qualify as a clinical psychologist. Most clinical psychologists become specialists in a particular area, such as eating disorders or addictions.

Unlike psychiatrists, clinical psychologists are not medical doctors so they do not prescribe medication. Instead, clinical psychologists focus on helping people change the way they think, feel and behave and the ways in which these factors impact their relationships. Many clinical psychologists work as psychotherapists, using talk therapy to help people process their thoughts and emotions and develop new strategies to handle challenges in their lives.

Why would I see a private psychologist? 

People come from all over the world to see us at our psychology clinic in London. There are many reasons why you may want to see a private psychologist. Perhaps you are looking for coping strategies to help you manage a stressful life situation, want help developing confidence and social skills or would like support overcoming a specific phobia.

There are several benefits to booking an appointment with a private psychologist. Firstly, private therapy tends to be very fast – you will usually be offered an appointment within a week or so after enquiring. If you are struggling with your situation and need immediate help or if you simply do not want to wait for months on a waiting list, private psychology may be a good option for you. 

Another benefit of private psychology is that you can self-refer and do not have to talk to multiple people as part of a potentially lengthy referral process before accessing a psychologist. At the Blue Tree Clinic, you can refer yourself or a family member for therapy with one of our private psychologists.

Seeing a private psychologist can also offer you increased privacy. Although therapy sessions are always confidential, sometimes people seeking therapy through the NHS are required to go to a group introduction session with other members of their local community. And, although your medical record is kept private, booking therapy through the NHS does go on your medical record, whereas, seeing a private psychologist does not.

When you book an appointment with a private psychologist, if you’d like to, you can choose the type of therapy you want to try. In contrast, when you access therapy through the NHS, you will not have the option to choose the type of therapy you receive. Therapy types in the NHS tend to be the most short-term and cost-effective options. At the Blue Tree Clinic, we offer an extensive range of psychotherapy types and treatments.

What does a clinical psychologist do?

Clinical psychologists assess a client’s condition by asking them questions. In some cases, such as if the client is a child, a clinical psychologist may also use observation and psychological ‘tests’ to help them make a diagnosis. They will then discuss treatment options with the client and design a treatment plan to help them overcome their challenges.

Compared to other types of psychology and counselling, clinical psychologists often work with people with more severe behavioural and mental health conditions. Their extensive training and experience make them well-suited to helping people who are experiencing complex challenges.

As well as working one-to-one with clients, clinical psychologists are often also heavily involved in condu

Benefits of clinical psychology

One of the main benefits of clinical psychology is the level of experience the professionals have. Clinical psychologists are trained in using multiple assessment tools to help them accurately diagnose a wide range of mental health conditions. Their extensive training also gives them the ability to offer you many different evidence-based treatment options, including talk therapy and other clinically proven methods.

Clinical psychology empowers you by giving you the problem-solving skills you need to cope with the challenges you face in your everyday life. A clinical psychologist can offer you insight into your diagnosis, help you get a better understanding of your symptoms and teach you about why you feel and behave the way that you do.

Clinical psychology can also give you the tools you need to manage your symptoms, overcome challenges and reduce the negative feelings that are causing you problems. Your clinical psychologist will create a treatment plan that is tailored specifically to you, which you can use to help you build resilience and cope better in times of stress.

Long-term, clinical psychology is designed to help clients successfully manage their challenges, even without the ongoing support of a psychologist. Clinical psychology will teach you how to be more confident and resilient so that you feel capable of overcoming problems independently.

Every day, we talk to people with vastly different struggles and concerns. Our staff will always provide you with a relaxed and non-judgmental environment.

During your first session, your psychiatrist will talk to you about your life in general, including your career and relationships. They will also ask you about your mental health, any medical symptoms you have been experiencing, how long you have been feeling this way, and what kind of impact it has had on your life.

Your psychiatrist will then explain the medication options that might work best for you specifically. They may also suggest you take advantage of the additional therapy and counselling services we offer at our private therapy clinic. Talking to a psychologist as well as a psychiatrist can be a great way to manage your mental health holistically.

If needed, your psychiatrist may also order physical tests to help you get a clear picture of what is going on in your body and the best treatment pathway to take.

Many people avoid getting help from private psychiatrists and psychologists because they are afraid of being judged or of discussing painful emotions. We know that reaching out to a psychiatrist can feel daunting. That’s why our private therapy clinic is here to offer you a safe, relaxed environment when you are ready to take the next step.

Which issues are addressed by Private Psychiatrist Assessment?

Our private psychiatrists in London can help you with most mental health conditions, including:

  • Addiction, such as gambling, gaming or drug or alcohol misuse
  • Anxiety disorders and panic attacks
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders, such as anorexia, bulimia or binge eating
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Personality disorders
  • Phobias
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

You may want to see a private psychiatrist if you are currently experiencing one or more of the problems listed below:

  • A low mood that doesn’t go away
  • Constant negative thoughts
  • Difficulty concentrating and paying attention
  • Difficulty remembering information
  • Difficulty winding down, relaxing or getting to sleep
  • Feeling constantly jumpy or on edge
  • Feeling like people want to harm you
  • Frequent anxiety, worry or fear

A psychiatrist is often a helpful choice when your mental health condition is severe, sudden, complex or difficult to diagnose. You may also benefit from talking to a private psychiatrist if you don’t feel like you are responding to the treatment offered by your GP.

What are the benefits of Private Psychiatrist Assessment?

There are many ways attending an appointment at our private therapy clinic in London could help you. For example, a private psychiatrist is able to:

Provide clarity or insight into your mental health condition. This is especially helpful when it is complex or has been difficult to diagnose. A psychiatrist can help you find answers to what you are experiencing.

Offer you help beyond therapy alone. For some individuals, talking therapy is not enough to relieve them of all of their symptoms. A psychiatrist is able to prescribe you medication in addition to helping you talk through your concerns.

Assess your physical health as well as your mental health. Psychiatrists are medical doctors, which means they are able to order physical tests to help gain a better understanding of your condition. Sometimes, psychiatric symptoms can actually be managed by treating an underlying medical condition, such as a thyroid disorder.

Develop a treatment plan. Your psychiatrist will work with you to make a plan for managing your mental condition in a way that works best for you. They may prescribe medication, offer advice on lifestyle factors and/or refer you to other health professionals.

Lift the burden. Talking to an unbiased, qualified and understanding mental health professional, like a private psychiatrist, will help you feel less alone and more in control of your condition. Just knowing that you are supported and that there is someone by your side can feel like a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders.

How does a private mental health assessment work?

We offer mental health assessments at our private therapy clinic in London. A mental health assessment is a conversation that you have with your psychiatrist.

It will take place during your first appointment so that the psychiatrist understands your situation and can help you decide what treatment options will work best for you.

During your mental health assessment at our London private clinic, your psychiatrist may ask you questions about:

  • The problem that brought you in to see them
  • Your day-to-day life
  • Your thoughts and feelings
  • The ways in which your mental health has been affecting your physical health – including behaviours like self-harm and food restriction
  • Your situation at home – including who you live with, how much support you have and whether anyone else is depending on you for their care
  • Any medications you are taking – including how regularly you take them and how well they are working for you

Please note: a mental health assessment is not some kind of “test,” it is simply a way for your psychiatrist to get a clear picture of how they can help you best. You don’t have to talk about anything you’re not comfortable bringing up. However, the more you can share, the more your psychiatrist will be able to understand and help you.

At the end of your mental health assessment, your psychiatrist may give you a prescription for medication. They may also recommend other treatment options, such as counselling with one of the qualified psychologists at our private clinic.

FAQ

Can you self-refer to a private psychiatric assessment UK?

Yes, you can self-refer if you would like to get a private psychiatric assessment at our psychology clinic in London. You can also refer friends and family members to our clinic.

You do not need a GP referral to book an appointment with any of the Blue Tree Clinic private psychiatrists. It is common for our patients to self-refer.

To book a private mental health assessment with us, you can self-refer by emailing reception@thebluetreeclinic.com or filling out the contact form on our ‘Contact’ page.

Can a private psychiatrist diagnose you?

Yes, the private psychiatrists at our London therapy clinic can diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medications to help treat your condition.

Your private psychiatrist will learn about your mental health condition by asking you a series of questions as part of the mental health assessment during your first appointment.

They will then give you a diagnosis based on the information you tell them about your mental and physical health.

Your psychiatrist will work with you to make an action plan for your treatment moving forward. You will be able to discuss treatment options, including medication and therapy, with your psychiatrist once they have diagnosed you.

How do I prepare for a private psychiatric assessment?

You are not required to do anything prior to attending an appointment with one of our private psychiatrists in London.

However, if you would like to, there are a few things you can do to prepare.

It can be helpful to get clarity on your current experiences by making a list of the symptoms and problems you have been having. Think about how these symptoms have been impacting your daily life.

Try asking yourself questions like are there things I used to enjoy that I can no longer do? What kind of situations do I avoid?

Keep your list and answers in mind when you attend your private assessment with your psychiatrist.

Do psychiatrists always prescribe medication?

Psychiatrists are medically qualified doctors, which means they have the ability to prescribe you medication if they think this would benefit you.

However, although psychiatrists can prescribe medication, this doesn’t mean that they always do. Psychiatrists can also help you through talking therapy.

At our private psychiatry clinic in London, we believe that medication can be very helpful for many patients but acknowledge that it is not always needed. Your private psychiatrist will consider your specific symptoms and experiences and will take this into account when deciding whether to prescribe you medication or not.

You will be able to work with your private psychiatrist to develop your specific treatment plan by expressing any thoughts or concerns you have.

How often should you see your psychiatrist for meds?

How regularly you see your private psychiatrist for medication and prescription refills will depend on several factors. You will probably need to visit your psychiatrist more regularly if you are trying a new medication or are having problems with your current medication.

Seeing a psychiatrist regularly (every few weeks) is a good idea if you need to have frequent monitoring to see how well your body is responding to a particular medication.

If you have been on a certain medication for a long time without side effects, you may only need to see your psychiatrist every few months for prescription refills. However, remember that the private psychiatrists at our London therapy clinic can also offer you non-medical support, such as helping you talk through your problems.

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

What can Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists treat?

 

Understandably, seeking mental health support for your child can be a particularly anxiety-provoking time and might feel like an overwhelming task. It may even be the case that you’ve already sought opinions from several different specialists and haven’t got any answers. Here at Blue Tree Clinic our Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist and therapy team are dedicated to providing a supportive experience for both you and your child and aim to make the whole process as simple as possible. Below we’ve outlined a few key bits of information you might want to read through if you are considering accessing mental health treatments for your child.

Book Your Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist Today





    Why would my child need to see a child psychiatrist?

    Day to day life for children and teenagers can be difficult for any number of reasons. Have you noticed that they have been more frustrated or overwhelmed than usual? Perhaps they are lashing out or becoming more withdrawn from their friends or the family. It can be difficult for anyone to express what might be troubling them, often for younger people, this can result in challenging behaviours and heightened emotions or difficulty regulating them. This can lead to feelings of shame, loneliness, trouble concentrating and an inability to communicate effectively.

    It might be hard to identify what the main problem is, whether you are worried your child might have ADHD or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), anxiety or depression from bullying, a learning difficulty, eating disorder or any number of other difficulties. Perhaps there have been changes in home dynamics or teachers have noticed that your child might require more specialised attention and you may be unsure where to start. Whatever your child might be struggling with, here at Blue Tree, our aim is to help you clarify what may be going on and provide added support for coping with and managing the challenges they may be experiencing.

    How can a Child and Adolescent psychiatrist help?

    A Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist is a medical doctor that specialises in assessing children and young people and providing a management plan to support child and parent moving forward. Assessments provided are in depth and aim to gather lots of detail, not only about psychological factors, but biological history and social or environmental contributors that may provide a more comprehensive and well-rounded picture of what has been going on. This might usually involve thinking about any experiences in the family home or in the schooling or learning environment that may have had an impact throughout this developmental life stage. Their expert and personalised care provides a supportive space to explore any concerns you or your child may have and, where appropriate, might provide a diagnosis in order to inform which course of treatment would best suit the unique and individual needs of the young person.

    Here at Blue Tree, we also provide specialised Child Educational Assessments and Autism Assessments with our psychologists, if this is something you believe your child could benefit from. This can also be beneficial if you feel your child may require more assistance in education or practical-support and these assessments provide evidence that can inform decisions and facilitate accessing such additional types of help.

    Who do I need to talk to?

    If your child is under 17 (Over 17’s are seen by our Adult team) and experiencing behavioural, emotional or educational difficulties and you feel they may benefit from having an assessment with a psychiatrist, contact us now to book a consultation or to find out more. We are proud to work with Dr.Jemma Theivendran and Dr Nazila Goodarzian to the Blue Tree Team, both friendly and experienced Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists committed to creating a supportive environment for children and young people experiencing any number of challenges, as well as their families.

    General Adult Psychiatrist

    What does our private psychiatrist do?

    The Blue Tree Clinic is a private psychiatry clinic in London made up of a small, experienced, friendly team of mental health professionals. You can attend an appointment with one of our private psychiatrists in London either in person at the Blue Tree Clinic or online from the comfort of your own home.

    Every day, we talk to people with vastly different struggles and concerns. Our staff will always provide you with a relaxed and non-judgmental environment.

    During your first session, your psychiatrist will talk to you about your life in general, including your career and relationships. They will also ask you about your mental health, any medical symptoms you have been experiencing, how long you have been feeling this way, and what kind of impact it has had on your life.

    Your psychiatrist will then explain the medication options that might work best for you specifically. They may also suggest you take advantage of the additional therapy and counselling services we offer at our private therapy clinic. Talking to a psychologist as well as a psychiatrist can be a great way to manage your mental health holistically.

    If needed, your psychiatrist may also order physical tests to help you get a clear picture of what is going on in your body and the best treatment pathway to take.

    Many people avoid getting help from private psychiatrists and psychologists because they are afraid of being judged or of discussing painful emotions. We know that reaching out to a psychiatrist can feel daunting. That’s why our private therapy clinic is here to offer you a safe, relaxed environment when you are ready to take the next step.

    Which issues are addressed by Private Psychiatrist Assessment?

    • Addiction, such as gambling, gaming or drug or alcohol misuse

    • Difficulty concentrating and paying attention
    • Difficulty remembering information

    • Overwhelming stress levels
    • Struggles with body image and eating
    • Struggles with gambling, gaming or other addictions
    • Suicidal thoughts

    A psychiatrist is often a helpful choice when your mental health condition is severe, sudden, complex or difficult to diagnose. You may also benefit from talking to a private psychiatrist if you don’t feel like you are responding to the treatment offered by your GP.

    What are the benefits of Private Psychiatrist Assessment?

    There are many ways attending an appointment at our private therapy clinic in London could help you. For example, a private psychiatrist is able to:

    Provide clarity or insight into your mental health condition. This is especially helpful when it is complex or has been difficult to diagnose. A psychiatrist can help you find answers to what you are experiencing.

    Offer you help beyond therapy alone. For some individuals, talking therapy is not enough to relieve them of all of their symptoms. A psychiatrist is able to prescribe you medication in addition to helping you talk through your concerns.

    Assess your physical health as well as your mental health. Psychiatrists are medical doctors, which means they are able to order physical tests to help gain a better understanding of your condition. Sometimes, psychiatric symptoms can actually be managed by treating an underlying medical condition, such as a thyroid disorder.

    Develop a treatment plan. Your psychiatrist will work with you to make a plan for managing your mental condition in a way that works best for you. They may prescribe medication, offer advice on lifestyle factors and/or refer you to other health professionals.

    Lift the burden. Talking to an unbiased, qualified and understanding mental health professional, like a private psychiatrist, will help you feel less alone and more in control of your condition. Just knowing that you are supported and that there is someone by your side can feel like a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders.

    How does a private mental health assessment work?

    We offer mental health assessments at our private therapy clinic in London. A mental health assessment is a conversation that you have with your psychiatrist.

    It will take place during your first appointment so that the psychiatrist understands your situation and can help you decide what treatment options will work best for you.

    During your mental health assessment at our London private clinic, your psychiatrist may ask you questions about:

    • The problem that brought you in to see them
    • Your day-to-day life
    • Your thoughts and feelings
    • The ways in which your mental health has been affecting your physical health – including behaviours like self-harm and food restriction
    • Your situation at home – including who you live with, how much support you have and whether anyone else is depending on you for their care
    • Any medications you are taking – including how regularly you take them and how well they are working for you

    Please note: a mental health assessment is not some kind of “test,” it is simply a way for your psychiatrist to get a clear picture of how they can help you best. You don’t have to talk about anything you’re not comfortable bringing up. However, the more you can share, the more your psychiatrist will be able to understand and help you.

    At the end of your mental health assessment, your psychiatrist may give you a prescription for medication. They may also recommend other treatment options, such as counselling with one of the qualified psychologists at our private clinic.

    Can you self-refer to a private psychiatric assessment UK?

    Yes, you can self-refer if you would like to get a private psychiatric assessment at our psychology clinic in London. You can also refer friends and family members to our clinic.

    You do not need a GP referral to book an appointment with any of the Blue Tree Clinic private psychiatrists. It is common for our patients to self-refer.

    To book a private mental health assessment with us, you can self-refer by emailing reception@thebluetreeclinic.com or filling out the contact form on our ‘Contact’ page.

    Can a private psychiatrist diagnose you?

    Yes, the private psychiatrists at our London therapy clinic can diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medications to help treat your condition.

    Your private psychiatrist will learn about your mental health condition by asking you a series of questions as part of the mental health assessment during your first appointment.

    They will then give you a diagnosis based on the information you tell them about your mental and physical health.

    Your psychiatrist will work with you to make an action plan for your treatment moving forward. You will be able to discuss treatment options, including medication and therapy, with your psychiatrist once they have diagnosed you.

    How do I prepare for a private psychiatric assessment?

    You are not required to do anything prior to attending an appointment with one of our private psychiatrists in London.

    However, if you would like to, there are a few things you can do to prepare.

    It can be helpful to get clarity on your current experiences by making a list of the symptoms and problems you have been having. Think about how these symptoms have been impacting your daily life.

    Try asking yourself questions like are there things I used to enjoy that I can no longer do? What kind of situations do I avoid?

    Keep your list and answers in mind when you attend your private assessment with your psychiatrist.

    Do psychiatrists always prescribe medication?

    Psychiatrists are medically qualified doctors, which means they have the ability to prescribe you medication if they think this would benefit you.

    However, although psychiatrists can prescribe medication, this doesn’t mean that they always do. Psychiatrists can also help you through talking therapy.

    At our private psychiatry clinic in London, we believe that medication can be very helpful for many patients but acknowledge that it is not always needed. Your private psychiatrist will consider your specific symptoms and experiences and will take this into account when deciding whether to prescribe you medication or not.

    You will be able to work with your private psychiatrist to develop your specific treatment plan by expressing any thoughts or concerns you have.

    How often should you see your psychiatrist for meds?

    How regularly you see your private psychiatrist for medication and prescription refills will depend on several factors. You will probably need to visit your psychiatrist more regularly if you are trying a new medication or are having problems with your current medication.

    Seeing a psychiatrist regularly (every few weeks) is a good idea if you need to have frequent monitoring to see how well your body is responding to a particular medication.

    If you have been on a certain medication for a long time without side effects, you may only need to see your psychiatrist every few months for prescription refills. However, remember that the private psychiatrists at our London therapy clinic can also offer you non-medical support, such as helping you talk through your problems.

    Child and Adolescent Mental Health

    What is Child and Adolescent Mental Health?

    Children and Adolescents often have anxieties, worries and problems growing up that they feel they can’t talk to their friends or family about. That can be anything from problems in the family, worries about school and friendships, bullying, struggling to concentrate, the divorce of parents or a bereavement.

    At a time when the waiting list is up to a year to be given therapy and help on the NHS, our child psychologists and psychiatrists are here to help your child get the help they need today.

    Children’s Mental Health Issues

    If your child is suffering from any of the issues listed below, the Blue Tree Clinic can help;

    Keeping Your Child Mentally Well

    There are a number of factors that contribute to the mental well-being of humans. Keeping your child mentally well enables them to develop a resilience to life’s challenges and allows them to cope.

    • It is important that your child has a healthy lifestyle. This includes eating a balanced diet and taking part in regular exercise.
    • Allow your child to have the freedom to engage with other children and spend time playing indoors and outdoors.
    • Living in an environment with a family that gets along and displays emotions of love, trust and understanding are important to a child’s mental wellbeing. It allows them to feel safe and when listened to, they feel valued and at ease to discuss their life’s troubles.
    • A good school life is crucial. Going to a school that cares for the wellbeing of its pupils provides a safe environment. They should be able to learn and be offered opportunities to enjoy themselves.
    • Encourage your child to take part in local activities for young people outside of the home and their school. This is imperative to your child’s social skills and learning about who they are. They will discover what they enjoy and recognize what they are good at.

    Child Mental Health Services

    Most children grow up mentally healthy but this can be affected by changes throughout their young adolescent lives. Traumatic events, feeling at risk, changes to their day-to-day lives or the discovery of new emotions and changes to the body as we grow, are all contributing factors that can have a negative effect on a child or young adult’s mental wellbeing.

    Here at the Blue Tree Clinic, our child and adolescent therapists and private psychiatrists are empathic, patient, warm and kind. With our ongoing support, we aim to work with your GP, your child’s school and the family to get them feeling happier and content, and through whatever is going on.

    For more information on how the Blue Tree Clinic can support your child in overcoming their mental health issues, please contact a member of our friendly team who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

    What is clinical psychology?

    Clinical psychology is an area of psychology that involves assessing and treating people with a wide range of mental and behavioural health problems. Clinical psychologists work with people of all ages and backgrounds to diagnose and treat any issues that are affecting a person’s emotional well-being and causing problems in their daily lives.

    Children, young adults, adults and older adults can all benefit from working with a clinical psychologist. Clinical psychology treatments can help with a wide range of illnesses and conditions, such as:

    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Eating disorders
    • Social problems
    • Phobias
    • Addictions
    • Child developmental and behavioural issues
    • Relationship problems 
    • Difficulty adjusting to physical illnesses
    • Learning disabilities

    Clinical psychologists are very experienced mental health professionals with a doctorate in clinical psychology. It usually takes between six and nine years for a person to qualify as a clinical psychologist. Most clinical psychologists become specialists in a particular area, such as eating disorders or addictions.

    Unlike psychiatrists, clinical psychologists are not medical doctors so they do not prescribe medication. Instead, clinical psychologists focus on helping people change the way they think, feel and behave and the ways in which these factors impact their relationships. Many clinical psychologists work as psychotherapists, using talk therapy to help people process their thoughts and emotions and develop new strategies to handle challenges in their lives.

    Why would I see a private psychologist? 

    People come from all over the world to see us at our psychology clinic in London. There are many reasons why you may want to see a private psychologist. Perhaps you are looking for coping strategies to help you manage a stressful life situation, want help developing confidence and social skills or would like support overcoming a specific phobia.

    There are several benefits to booking an appointment with a private psychologist. Firstly, private therapy tends to be very fast – you will usually be offered an appointment within a week or so after enquiring. If you are struggling with your situation and need immediate help or if you simply do not want to wait for months on a waiting list, private psychology may be a good option for you. 

    Another benefit of private psychology is that you can self-refer and do not have to talk to multiple people as part of a potentially lengthy referral process before accessing a psychologist. At the Blue Tree Clinic, you can refer yourself or a family member for therapy with one of our private psychologists.

    Seeing a private psychologist can also offer you increased privacy. Although therapy sessions are always confidential, sometimes people seeking therapy through the NHS are required to go to a group introduction session with other members of their local community. And, although your medical record is kept private, booking therapy through the NHS does go on your medical record, whereas, seeing a private psychologist does not.

    When you book an appointment with a private psychologist, if you’d like to, you can choose the type of therapy you want to try. In contrast, when you access therapy through the NHS, you will not have the option to choose the type of therapy you receive. Therapy types in the NHS tend to be the most short-term and cost-effective options. At the Blue Tree Clinic, we offer an extensive range of psychotherapy types and treatments.

    What does a clinical psychologist do?

    Clinical psychologists assess a client’s condition by asking them questions. In some cases, such as if the client is a child, a clinical psychologist may also use observation and psychological ‘tests’ to help them make a diagnosis. They will then discuss treatment options with the client and design a treatment plan to help them overcome their challenges.

    Compared to other types of psychology and counselling, clinical psychologists often work with people with more severe behavioural and mental health conditions. Their extensive training and experience make them well-suited to helping people who are experiencing complex challenges.

    As well as working one-to-one with clients, clinical psychologists are often also heavily involved in condu

    Benefits of clinical psychology

    One of the main benefits of clinical psychology is the level of experience the professionals have. Clinical psychologists are trained in using multiple assessment tools to help them accurately diagnose a wide range of mental health conditions. Their extensive training also gives them the ability to offer you many different evidence-based treatment options, including talk therapy and other clinically proven methods.

    Clinical psychology empowers you by giving you the problem-solving skills you need to cope with the challenges you face in your everyday life. A clinical psychologist can offer you insight into your diagnosis, help you get a better understanding of your symptoms and teach you about why you feel and behave the way that you do.

    Clinical psychology can also give you the tools you need to manage your symptoms, overcome challenges and reduce the negative feelings that are causing you problems. Your clinical psychologist will create a treatment plan that is tailored specifically to you, which you can use to help you build resilience and cope better in times of stress.

    Long-term, clinical psychology is designed to help clients successfully manage their challenges, even without the ongoing support of a psychologist. Clinical psychology will teach you how to be more confident and resilient so that you feel capable of overcoming problems independently.

    Clinical psychology at The Blue Tree Clinic

    The private clinical psychologists at our London clinic have extensive experience in addressing and relieving a diverse range of mental health issues. Our team of clinical psychologists are specialists in anxiety disorders, eating disorders, sexual identity issues, body image-related difficulties and complex family relationships.
