Who is who

    Nurses

    We have a number of clinical nurse specialists who complete assessments, and co-ordinate and deliver treatments, such as Family-Based Treatment and Specialist Supported Clinical Management.

    Doctors

    We have psychiatrists who may be involved in your assessments and treatments, including prescribing and monitoring of medication and reviews. A psychiatrist may oversee your care and review your treatments.

    Dieticians

    Our dietitians offer assessments and treatments. They use the current public health and scientific research on food, health and disease, which they translate into practical advice to help people make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.

    Therapists

    We have three types of therapist within our therapies team: psychologists, family therapists and art psychotherapists.

    • Psychologists work with individuals and families and offer therapy and consultation. They also do assessments and the main treatment they provide is individual therapy such as cognitive behavioural therapy.
    • Family therapists offer assessments and the treatment they offer (family therapy) involves working with families to nurture change and development.
    • Art psychotherapists mainly offer treatments of one-to-one art psychotherapy.
