About DocHealth

DocHealth is a confidential, not for profit, psychotherapeutic consultation service for doctors. Although located in London, the service is open to all doctors in the UK. For doctors outside London, after an initial face-to-face session, ongoing video consultations are available.

DocHealth helps doctors to explore their difficulties, both professional and personal, through Consultant Psychiatrists in Medical Psychotherapy who have the collective experience of treating over 3000 doctors in the last 20 years. It aims to facilitate greater understanding by the doctor of his or her presenting difficulties, thus enabling them to regain greater control of their situation.

The service is for qualified doctors only, consultations for medical students are not offered. We suggest students who need psychological assessment or treatment seek this through university counselling or medical services.

DocHealth is able to cover fees for doctors in financial difficulty, where appropriate.

DocHealth is supported by the British Medical Association (BMA) and the Royal Medical Benevolent Fund (RMBF).
