Booking an online or in-person therapy appointment
Booking your first appointment with a new therapist can be daunting, which is why we make it as easy as possible for you. You can use our Book an Appointment page to schedule an initial consultation, or call us Monday to Friday 9am – 6pm on 02071180407.
Our London-based psychiatry clinic operates Monday to Friday 9am – 6pm, with same-day or next-day appointments often available. Simply call us on 02071180407 to find the next available appointment that suits you, or wait for us to contact you if you’ve filled in the Book an Appointment form.
We do our best to ensure you receive an appointment as soon as possible. However, we understand you may be experiencing high levels of distress that need immediate support. That’s why a member of our senior team is on call from Monday to Friday 9am -6pm, and very urgent calls can be patched through to our senior team, both overnight and at the weekend, via 02031314905.
Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we’re only offering online appointments and are not able to see patients in-person. However, as soon as restrictions lift, we will offer in-person appointments for all our new and existing patients.
Online therapy can take place from the comfort of your own home. We recommend finding a private, quiet place where you can safely talk to your practitioner through video chat. The online sessions are no different from in-person: you will receive the same quality of care and support you would in our Harley Street clinic.

My psychiatry treatment plan
If you’re receiving mental health care for the first time and don’t know which type of specialist you should see first to start your journey, we will recommend that you see one of our Consultant psychiatrists first. As a qualified medical doctor, a psychiatrist will be able to assess your condition taking the whole spectrum of physical health into consideration. They will complete a full assessment and diagnosis for you and can even offer immediate medication if required.
If you think a psychiatric assessment isn’t necessary, you can seek an initial assessment and ongoing treatment from a psychologist, psychotherapist or another type of therapist instead. You may want to refer to our Meet The Team page to better understand what each of them can support you with and their specific approaches to therapy.
We always want to make sure you are receiving the correct treatment plan for your personal symptoms and diagnosis, whether that’s through psychotherapy, psychology or another of our services. If at any time you feel unsure about your treatment plan, or one of our therapists feels that you would benefit from a different type of treatment, you can contact us to have things changed, no matter what your condition. You can rest assured that you are always in good hands – making sure you have the right treatment and tools to get better is our main priority.
Every practitioner working at Psymplicity Healthcare has trained to the highest standards and has had many years of experience successfully working with patients both in and outside the private healthcare setting. You can visit our Meet The Team page to read more about our practitioners and their academic backgrounds.
Psymplicity Healthcare offers bespoke, holistic treatment plans specific to your unique symptoms and circumstances. No two treatment plans are the same — your practitioner will work according to your specific needs and goals.
Many treatment plans will involve the introduction of medication, as well as the use of CBT exercises to challenge pre-existing biases and concepts. Your therapist will decide which treatment is most suitable for you depending on the severity of your symptoms and your diagnosis.
Every treatment is unique in its objectives and duration. Our holistic approach focuses on creating a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Your therapist will set out goals at the beginning of your journey and together, you will review your progress and make changes if needed.
A few weeks could be enough for you to learn how to manage your symptoms and get control of your life. However, it can happen that your treatment plan takes longer than expected. That is part of the process and shouldn’t discourage you. No matter how long it will take, your therapist will be there to offer you support and guide you through your journey to a happier life.
