Our therapy service is a small family run service where we tailor to your own individual needs and provide a personal service so we can determine together the appropriate therapy. Our psychotherapist is a fully trained and qualified practitioner with a great amount of experience within the NHS.

 

Therapy can be face-to-face, telephone or Skype. We can also offer home visits for assessment and treatment in special circumstances.

 

We have a lovely village location for our therapy clinic where we can see our clients during the day, in the evenings or at weekends and we always try to be flexible and accommodate.

 

Here at BRITISH PSYCHOTHERAPY we take confidentiality, client privacy and duty of care and ethical practice extremely seriously and always believe working together collaboratively with our clients to achieve the best results for them.

 

Our moto here at BRITISH PSYCHOTHERAPY is improving your mood to help you live a better quality of life.

 

You are welcome to call us now to arrange a free consultation appointment to see how service could meet your needs.
