What We Do
We support people and help them recover, using a wide range of different therapies and assessments. We use best-practice and multidisciplinary approaches to diagnose Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and ADHD.
We also have a secure and confidential online ‘virtual consultation’ service. This service can be used to provide assessments, therapy and ongoing support for people who are not able to come to our site in York.
We care for the mental health of people in York and across the UK through our Adult Psychological Therapies Service, our Children and Young People’s Psychological Therapies Service, our Adult Autism and ADHD Service and our Children and Young People’s Autism Service. In addition to privately funded therapies, we offer some services free at the point of delivery through contracts with NHS partners and through charitable funding.
