We are really sorry! We are now full till the end of February 2023.

Apologies, but we are currently closed to new referrals as we are booked until February 2023. We are still seeing existing clients and those currently on the waiting list. We are very sorry for the inconvenience but hope to open the doors again towards the end of the year.  In the meantime, we wish you the best of luck on your ADHD journeys.

£1,300 for an adult ASD assessment. Allow up to four hours.

Dr Read has decided to stop offering ASD assessments for now since it is a developing area, with shifting diagnostic trends and expectations. The clinic is very busy and we can’t do everything, so are stepping back from this interesting and dynamic area for now, but watch this space.

Diagnostic consultations are online via video link.

Please note that Dr Read is extremely busy, and generally is not able to phone clients outside their appointments, or answer most emails personally, however, our friendly admin team will advise and answer questions, by phone or email.

Sadly, Dr Read does not see under 18’s, but we are happy to offer recommendations for trusted professionals if you contact us.

We need to make sure that there is suitable local medical support for you, wherever you are. We, therefore, place some emphasis on being able to contact a local medical service, often a GP, if we feel we really need to. This doesn’t mean that we will insist on talking to your GP about you, just that we need to know that you have a local medical service to which we can refer if necessary

ADHD Consultancy Ltd believes that easy access to mental health support is beneficial to people experiencing mental health problems or distress. As such we will not impose unnecessary barriers to accessing our service which may deter some people from accessing our support. However, in some circumstances it is important to ensure that people seeking a service are providing accurate details about their identity. Such circumstances include:

1. If medication is being prescribed

2. If referral on to other agencies is considered.

Photo ID will be required to confirm identity which will be undertaken at the first video consultation.

Information About Assessments

Our initial online assessment appointment will aim to be as comprehensive and helpful as possible within the two hour timeframe. This gives enough time for detailed exploration and discussion of comorbidities, client centred formulation, psychodynamic and cognitive suggestions, and detailed discussion of treatment plan and options. Dr Read has a career long interest in working with clients with emotional difficulties of all kinds, and understands the links between ADHD/ADD and rejection sensitive dysphoria, mood, anxiety, self esteem and sleep problems.

The initial consultation includes full clinical history, diagnosis, formulation, full report and private prescription if appropriate. We can also supply repeat private prescriptions to our own clients if required. Our diagnostic reports are very comprehensive and reference relevant comorbid conditions. We also support you to get ongoing NHS prescribing from your GP and so far have a near 100% success rate with this !!

Initial appointments are currently on weekday mornings, however we aim to be flexible with our followup times. We do have a cancellation list and once booked and forms returned, we can put you on it if you would prefer to be seen sooner; of course we can’t guarantee that this will happen.

Whichever consultation you choose today, you will receive a very high quality, caring and affordable assessment with ongoing post diagnosis support provided by email between appointments.

Before your consultation, you’ll be sent preliminary forms to complete and send back. Please forward any other relevant information including diagnostic reports for consideration prior to the consultation.
