Specialist Psychological Clinic
Dr Costas Papageorgiou provides a specialist psychological clinic at two locations in the North West of England: The Abbey Sefton Hospital in Crosby, Merseyside and The Priory Hospital Altrincham in Cheshire.

The clinic offers expert and consultant-level psychological assessments and treatments specifically for individuals with psychiatric and psychological problems that are complex, severe, recurring or persistent and have not responded well to, or fully benefited from, other courses of treatment such as previous psychological interventions and medication. These problems include:

Dr Papageorgiou closely adheres to the clinical guidelines produced by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the most recent developments in psychological treatments. NICE is “an independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance on promoting good health and preventing and treating ill health” for healthcare professionals working in the National Health Service in England and Wales. Clinical guidelines are recommendations for good practice. The guidelines produced by NICE are prepared by groups of healthcare professionals, patients, carers and their representatives, and scientists. The groups look at the evidence available on the best way of treating a condition and make recommendations based on this evidence.

The main focus of the clinic is on conducting thorough and comprehensive psychological assessments and delivering scientifically proven intensive treatments as well as new and emerging effective interventions, some of which Dr Papageorgiou has been involved in researching, implementing, and evaluating (see also Experience and Publications).

The results of the assessment will help to guide the best choice of treatment, which is carefully and sensitively planned to address the needs of the individual. In addition to specialist Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), the clinic offers Schema Therapy (ST) and Metacognitive Therapy (MCT). Dr Papageorgiou is able to provide a specialist psychological clinic because of his Qualifications and Experience.

Dr Papageorgiou offers a professional and confidential service that is regulated by the British Psychological Society (BPS) every year and closely adheres to the Society’s Good Practice, Code of Conduct, and Ethical guidelines. Dr Papageorgiou is also bound by the Data Protection Act. If you wish to arrange to be assessed with the view of receiving specialist psychological treatment by Dr Papageorgiou, please note that it is normally recommended that patients obtain a referral letter from their General Practitioner, Consultant Psychiatrist, or other relevant healthcare professional.
