About Anchor Psychiatry Group

Our main goal was to provide exceptional mental health care and maintain the highest professional standards. Over the last decade, we have taken great pride in building a thriving and well-respected independent private practice. Our services have extended beyond Norfolk and Suffolk, reaching patients from various locations.

Each of us boasts more than ten years of experience as Consultants, having worked both in the NHS and private sector. Our expertise covers a wide range of adult mental health assessments, diagnoses, and treatment. Moreover, we have undergone specialised training to effectively diagnose and manage conditions such as ADHD, autism, and co-existing mental health disorders in adults. Approachability, competence, and extensive experience ensure that we offer nothing less than a first-rate service to all our patients.

“I can’t thank Anchor Psychiatry Group enough for their professionalism and kindness.”

Feedback from KS, 58-year-old patient following adult mental health clinic assessment.

“My 18-year-old son was assessed and diagnosed with ADHD and treated with medication for this condition by Anchor Psychiatry Group. The difference that this has made to his life is priceless and I can’t thank his Consultant Psychiatrist and Anchor Psychiatry Group enough for that.”

Feedback from parent of FB, 18-year-old patient following ADHD assessment and treatment.

“Since seeing my Anchor Psychiatrist, being diagnosed, and starting my treatment, my life has drastically improved, and I am forever grateful. Receiving treatment has given me clarity and given me life back. Thankyou.”

Feedback from LM, a 28-year-old patient following ADHD assessment and treatment.

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for how supportive and positive the process of assessment and diagnosis was that you offered me. I was naturally apprehensive, but you immediately put me at ease, and I found it really easy to open up to you without judgement. Thank you so much for this.”

Feedback from HV, a 40-year-old patient following an ADHD assessment.

“I have had a great experience with my Consultant Psychiatrist and Anchor Psychiatry Group from the start. I have felt supported, empowered, and meaningfully understood. My doctor’s approach is thorough and down to earth with a wonderful professional curiosity which made me feel that they are genuinely interested in my experience of being neurodivergent and how it has affected me. I have always felt respected, seen, and heard. I feel very strongly that I am regarded as an individual and not a ‘patient’.”

Feedback from EC, 48-year-old patient following ADHD assessment and treatment.

“Since seeing my Anchor Psychiatrist, being diagnosed, and starting my treatment, my life has drastically improved, and I am forever grateful. Receiving treatment has given me clarity and given me life back. Thankyou.”
