Private Psychiatry provides a comprehensive service for adults and young people from the age of 16 with a wide variety of emotional and mental health problems.
We welcome new patients to the practice, and are always happy to accept referrals directly from patients or their family members, or from GPs and other healthcare professionals. We also accept referrals from the NHS, providing the patient has private funding.
Patients can fund appointments themselves or use private medical insurance. We are recognised by most major medical insurance providers who usually require a GP referral letter. Referral letters are not required for self-funding patients.
If you have never been treated by a psychiatrist before, or even you have, our What to Expect page explains more about the course your treatment with Private Psychiatry may take. Our detailed Patient Guide will also tell you more.
Although there are some areas of similarity, there are also clear differences between a psychiatrist, a psychologist and a therapist, which can be confusing. If you are unsure which mental health professional is right for you, our explanation will help you decide.
If you have any further questions, please contact us and our staff will be happy to help you. All enquiries are treated in the strictest confidence.
Please note, if you wish us to discuss your condition with either your family or other third parties, we will need your written permission to enable us to do so.
I am relieved to have found Private Psychiatry. I only wish I had come to you sooner.

I could not recommend Dr Winbow and his delightful secretarial team more highly. Thank you so much for looking after me.

My psychiatrist makes me feel at ease. I can open up and truly tell him how I feel. I have learnt relaxation techniques so that I can cope with my panic attacks when they occur. Everyone who works at Private Psychiatry is excellent.

I've been seeing Dr Winbow for over a year and it was the best thing I ever did. With thanks to my parents and my doctor, I finally understand my illness and my medication has stabilised me. I really recommend him.
