Contacts and Clinics


Patients may self refer although it is best to have an initial discussion with Dr Thorley's secretary (see contact details below) before doing so. Otherwise it imay be helpful to have a GP referral letter and if claiming on health insurance, this is usually  an essential requirement.

Dr Thorley is registered with all the major health Insurance companies except for BUPA. Patients are advised always to discuss a potenial referral with their health insurers first before making an appointment.

The cost of therapy is an important consideration and details of current fee levels can be obtained from Dr Thorley's secretary or at either of the hospital clinics. To keep costs reasonable, Dr Thorley seeks to use the most effective therapies and aims to complete an intervention in the shortest possible time. His long and specialist experinence in working solely with young people ensures the best possible service.


Clinics are held at convenient times for young people - always after school in the late afternoon/early evening periods and at weekends. You will always see Dr Thorley - no trainees or junior staff are employed.
