About DocHealth

DocHealth is a confidential, not for profit, psychotherapeutic consultation service for doctors. Although headquarters are located in London, the service is open to all practising doctors in the UK. Currently all DocHealth consultations are taking place remotely by video.

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. The service aims to facilitate greater understanding by the doctor of their presenting difficulties, thus enabling them to regain greater control of their situation.

The service is for qualified, practising doctors only – consultations for retired doctors and 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).
