Box Tree Clinic?
The box tree represents to me the potential of all human beings, who when provided with time, care, imagination, and the right environment are able to find and form their true selves. This process of growth and discovery is much like it is for the strong and resilient buxus plant, which has infinite potential to become something truly wonderful if put in the right location and given the right attention and a dash of creativity. The belief in each and every one of our clients to thrive, and even to transform, is the cornerstone of our clinic.

The different terms seem confusing, but they all refer to the process of meeting with a trained professional to help you improve your mental health. We will connect you with the right expert who is most suited to help.
Talk therapy can treat the roots of your issues by helping you cope better today and by helping you work through your feelings and behaviours.
A Chartered Psychologist has similar training to a psychotherapist, but also holds a degree in Psychology. This degree has to be at least the equivalent of a doctoral degree. Psychologists have extensive knowledge of psychopathology and diagnosis and have completed original research.
A Psychotherapist is also trained in counselling skills and theory, but generally works in greater depth than counsellors and coaches. Psychotherapy is therefore medium to long-term, often lasting for more than a year.
A Counsellor has training in counselling theory and skills, and usually conducts short to medium-term work, often lasting between six and twenty sessions. Counsellors provide help with immediate problems as well as provide coping skills with everyday issues.
Medication can help you through a difficult period or provide relief from a chonic condition that can be due to a chemical imbalance in the brain.
A Psychiatrist is a medically-trained professional who offers diagnostic assessment and a treatment plan which may include medication and/or a referral for therapy. Psychiatrists are not typically trained to do counselling and psychotherapy.
