How Does It Work?

Private psychiatry starts with our highly-qualified and professional psychiatrists undertaking an initial consultation where assessments will be carried out looking at both your physical and mental health. Typical questions that you may be asked include; general questions about your life and questions directly related to the reason you booked an appointment.

After conducting the initial assessments, our psychiatrist(s) can then proceed to diagnose any particular conditions which is often the first step on the road to recovery. Once the diagnosis has been met, the psychiatrist can then proceed to treat mental and emotional disorders through the use of talking therapies, such as CBT and counseling, medications, or a combination of the two.

Psychiatry Appointments

Within a typical psychiatry appointment, you can expect to feel comfortable in a relaxed environment at one of our three locations. Our private psychiatrists will ensure you feel at ease before starting the initial consultation and assessments. You are likely to be asked open-ended questions that may make you feel nervous, especially if you’re unsure where to start. But don’t worry, there are no right or wrong answers, and you can expect your psychiatrist to guide you through the appointment. After sessions 1, 2, or 3, your psychiatrist will start putting a plan together for you regarding your potential medication options, levels of care needed, appropriate treatment programs, and more.

Private Psychiatry Preston - FAQs

Great question. We take a great time and ponder before we decide on the most appropriate and suitable treatment plan for you. It’s much easier for our team to decide on a treatment plan once we’ve undertaken the full diagnostic assessment. Once the full assessment is complete, we’ll then be able to create the best plan based on medication, treatment plans, or both.

Private psychiatry is often better than going through the NHS and public services. Companies like The Therapy Company make psychiatry services much more accessible for patients as there’s no six-eighteen month waiting list.

Our private psychiatrists will always give you an estimated timeframe of how long appointments are likely to last for.

All psychiatrists are required to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of their patients’ information, except in situations where there is a legal obligation to disclose or when there is a risk of harm to the patient or others.
