Dr Claudia Bernat MRCPsych , Consultant Psychiatrist

femalepsychiatristlondon.co.uk

I have been working as an independent consultant now for 20 years, and during this time, through consultations with patients, I have been made aware of how difficult it has been for some people to locate and access suitable psychological services promptly.

During my time working in healthcare I have had the opportunity to build valuable relationships with many different psychotherapists and psychologists all offering very different psychological approaches.

With this in mind, it became a goal of mine to create a space whereby patients could access all these services in one place. Somewhere that they could come to see a psychiatrist and have immediate referral to psychological treatment and be able to make appointments in one place.  The clinic itself is a beautiful and calming space and is easily accessible being a 5 minute walk from High Barnet tube station.

It is important for me to stress that the professionals that work here rent a space in the clinic but there is no financial gain for me when referring to a therapist.

Please have a look at the list of therapists we have at our clinic and feel free to contact Jamie to book a consultation on 0208 441 5241.
