Treatment could include one-to-one counselling sessions, family therapy, group therapy and skills workshops, psychiatric support, nutritional counselling or dietetics, health assessments, meal support and more. At Schoen Clinic Newbridge we also ensure young patients don’t miss out on their education.

  • How can I pay for treatment?
    We offer a variety of payment methods at Schoen Clinic. Many of our patients choose to self-fund their treatment as a fast option to receive specialist mental healthcare. We’re also recognised by major insurers so it’s worth checking with your provider to see if you’d be covered. For individuals wishing to receive treatment at Schoen Clinic Newbridge or Schoen Clinic York, it’s also possible to access these services through the NHS.

  • Who can refer me to Schoen Clinic for highly specialised mental health treatment?
    Your GP, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) team, Adult Mental Health Services (AMHS) team or another health professional can arrange a referral to Schoen Clinic. If you’re self-funding a referral is preferable but not essential in most cases as your specialist can write to your GP retrospectively.

    Yes. As individuals work through the inpatient treatment programme, time away from Schoen Clinic Newbridge and Schoen Clinic York and weekend leave become part of the treatment model.
