The Anchor Practice
The Anchor Practice is a specialist mental health clinic providing psychotherapy and clinical psychology for children, adolescents, young adults and families. Set up by highly experienced clinicians, it is based in Edinburgh, with clinical appointments offered in the city.
The Anchor Practice provides thorough assessment and evidence-based treatment for a wide range of mental health difficulties in children and young people, whilst ensuring our clients are at the heart of all we do.
Expertise and experience
Our clinicians are trained to the highest levels of child, adolescent and adult mental health care and have substantial experience working within NHS provisions as well as the charity sector and private practice.
Evidence and research
Personal and thorough
Many of our patients have experienced episodes of care which they felt were too short or insufficiently able to get to the bottom of their difficulties. Our clinicians are trained in thorough, long term models of clinical psychotherapy, and offer treatments that reflect this depth of training.
Flexible and responsive
We understand that pressures on statutory services mean that it can feel difficult to obtain an appointment for yourself or your child in a timely manner. We aim to respond to all phone or email enquiries within 48 hours, and in most cases can offer an initial appointment within 5 working days.
