Some words from our clients

“The most immediate thing I felt was how relaxed I felt talking about myself for over one hour, considering I was very anxious prior to the appointment. Another immediate benefit was, that I’ve slept soundly every night since the first appointment and sleep is something which has been a debilitating problem for me, for years. This diagnosis has given me closure and I now feel happy within myself. I can now look forward to a brighter future, without analysing myself 24 hours a day.”

“I really like the all-round approach that is offered for people with ADHD. Being diagnosed as an adult, it’s been great being able to sort my medication, therapy and support with systems and sensory through the one practice. I’ve worked with a psychiatrist, psychologist and occupational therapist who have all been really supportive and this has given me a great approach to managing and understanding my ADHD that isn’t just based on medication.”

“I can’t thank the team enough for all their efforts, expertise and empathy before, during and after my Autism / ADHD assessment. They massively helped me navigate and bounce back from the hardest period of my life. I am forever in their debt. I live in Northern Ireland, but I did my research on neurodiverse specialist therapy / assessment providers who offer online sessions. I found the St. Andrew’s Practice to stand out from the crowd due to the range, depth and bespoke nature of the assessments and interventions their team collectively provide. I would highly recommend the St Andrew’s Practice to anyone that believes they may be neurodiverse, and wishes the insight that diagnosis and treatment brings, and the tools that the expert Occupational Therapist helps teach you to make practical life-improving changes.”

I’ve worked with a psychiatrist, psychologist and occupational therapist who have all been really supportive and this has given me a great approach to managing and understanding my ADHD that isn’t just based on medication.”

“I started going to therapy at The St Andrews Practice last year following the sudden and unexpected death of my husband. The St Andrews Practice gave me that place to grieve and supported me in the grieving process. My therapist has really helped me in coming to terms with his death, the events, the complexities, the trauma and in finding a new life for myself. I couldn’t recommend therapy, my therapist or The St. Andrews Practice more. They honestly have been my life-line in the most difficult of times and I don’t believe I would be where I am today with my grief had it not been for my therapist and The St Andrews Practice. I will be forever grateful for all they have done for me.”

“The clinicians are fantastic – I felt truly listened to, understood and validated. I felt challenged but in a compassionate sense. I’m really glad I attended in person – both clinicians made me feel at ease and encouraged a really collaborative assessment space.”

“The care I have received at The St Andrews Practice – by one of the psychologists as well as an occupational therapist – has been top-notch, thoughtful, personalised and life-changing. I have felt closely attended and encouraged by their professional yet friendly approach to my varied needs. I am so grateful for the many-pronged treatment that has made a profound difference for me.”

Frequently Asked Questions

A psychiatrist is a qualified medical doctor with additional specialist training and qualifications in mental health. They are skilled in recognising and diagnosing specific mental health difficulties and disorders based on the symptoms you experience.  A psychiatrist will review your symptoms, your medical and developmental history and your physical health, and consider whether any medication may be beneficial for you, either in the short or the long term. They will be able to assess whether any medication is contra-indicated or is likely to interact with other medications you are taking. Psychiatrists are also skilled in identifying when medication is unlikely to be beneficial to you, and they may be able to recommend alternative or additional approaches. 

There are different types of psychologist, for example there are Educational Psychologists or Forensic psychologists. We are Clinical Psychologists. We are trained over many years to assess and treat individuals with mental health difficulties, using psychological strategies. We use a range of methods (what we often call “models” of therapy) that are based on scientific research. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is probably the most widely used therapy model in the UK currently, however, there are a range of effective models and approaches available. We are trained in a number of different approaches so that we can tailor our interventions both to a person’s specific difficulties, and also to their preferences.

All of our clinicians at The Invertay Practice work according to a “bio-psycho-social” model of mental health and wellbeing. That is, we take into account the impact of a person’s biological or genetic factors (for instance, a family history of a specific difficulty may increase the likelihood of an individual developing the same difficulties), their psychological factors (for example their thoughts, emotions and resulting behaviours) and their social factors (for example, what support they have around them and the quality of their close relationships). This allows us to attain a detailed holistic view of an individuals unique circumstances and integrate these factors into understanding and treating difficulties.

Sometimes people see both a Psychiatrist and a Clinical Psychologist, and take both a medical and psychological approach to treatment, depending on their difficulties. If you are having a diagnostic assessment for ASD or ADHD you will have sessions with both, as these are multi-disciplinary assessments.

Anyone can call themselves a counsellor or therapist, and there are many people that do so with a range of training and qualifications, from not very much, to quite a lot. Many counsellors and therapists are very good at what they do, however, if you chose to take this route to getting help make sure you check out their credentials and accreditation and find out what their training actually involved!

Clinical Psychologist is a protected title. That means that you can only use it professionally if you have the highest level of clinical training – a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Throughout this training clinicians complete both academic work and clinical work under qualified supervision. Doctoral trainees are very closely observed and evaluated to ensure they acquire the necessary skills to work within this role. You can be assured that our Clinical Psychologists have this qualification, and our practitioner details can be freely found on the website of our regulatory body – the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Counselling is often beneficial for people who want a safe place to talk through and get support with their difficulties. Clinical Psychology is more than that. We do a lot of “psychoeducation” in our work – that is, helping you to understand how your brain, your body, your thoughts and emotions link together and impact on your behaviours, your daily functioning and your ways of coping. Our interventions are based on facilitating long term change and improving your quality of life and wellbeing. They can be hard work and sometimes involve completing tasks between sessions, however, we know these are the approaches with the best evidence base for improving your mental health and alleviating distress.

Speak to your GP initially if you are finding it hard to understand your difficulties and what support you might need. If you want to access support from The Invertay Practice, fill in our online self-referral form with as many details as you can, and we will review it to see if we can offer you an initial appointment to discuss things further.

If we agree that psychological treatment is likely to be of benefit to you, we will discuss and explain the range of therapies we offer and recommend one that is likely to fit with your specific needs and preferences. Treatment will be agreed collaboratively between you and your clinician. Sometimes we will use approaches from different therapeutic models if there is indication to do so. The rationale for this will all be discussed with you throughout your treatment.
