Psychiatrists are doctors trained to diagnose and treat mental, behavioural and emotional disorders.
All our consultant psychiatrists either work or have worked as consultant psychiatrists in the NHS. They are all on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council, so you can be sure you’re in safe hands.
How it works
No matter which psychiatrist you see in the first instance, they will develop a treatment plan for you and will then refer you to a therapist if that’s appropriate. Your consultant psychiatrist will also prescribe medication where relevant.
Good to know
After assessing your condition, the psychiatrist may prescribe medication or recommend other treatments, such as counselling or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
The number of times you need to see a psychiatrist and the length of each appointment will depend on your circumstances.
Psychiatrists may also provide psychological support for people with long-term, painful or terminal physical health conditions.
