"Very helpful team, quick to respond and knowledgeable."

"We recently had the pleasure of enlisting Dr Becky Spelman as a spokesperson for a media campaign that got traction across a series of broadcast channels. Dr Spelman was incredibly easy to work with throughout the entire process - from initial briefs, content approvals, prompt responses, and then key message delivery during the secured interviews. Always the professional, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use her for similar campaign and spokesperson work in the future."

"Very kind and welcoming. Really appreciate their help."

"Very good first session, it was nice to find someone who put me at my ease and valued my opinions and experiences."

"I have been very impressed with the Private Therapy clinic. An assessment of my daughter for ADHD was made efficiently and caringly. I was even moved to start talking with a psychologist myself for the first time in many years - it's proving very interesting and yielding results already."
