Private Appointments at the MPC

The Michael Palin Centre has a private route for families (children and young people) and also for adults. If you live overseas you will need to access our assessment clinic and therapy through the private route. If you live in the UK you may wish to choose the private route in order to be seen more quickly for an assessment or if your local CCG/NHS Trust does not approve funding for you to come here for therapy. Private appointments can take place in-person at the MPC or remotely.

 

Please be aware that if you have a private assessment then any therapy that you decide to continue with will also need to be paid for privately.

“The MPC ACT course has had an immediate impact on my practice as an SLT working with young people with a stammer. All the practical activities meant that I was able to implement elements of this approach literally the next day with empowering results for my teenage clients. Its emphasis on acceptance makes it an important resource for all therapists and essential for those working with people who stammer.”
