Recent Patient Testimonials

“The help Dr Westgarth gave our daughter lifted a dark and confused cloud from her view of life and he helped in restoring her joy for life in general, and reinstating the optimistic outlook she had previously had. His therapy was vital in her recovery.  She has just received fantastic GCSE results which didn’t seem possible before we sought Dr Westgarth’s help.  The coping tools he has given her will serve her well as she moves into adulthood.”

with low mood and anxiety

“Dr Westgarth was a god send to our daughter who was literally wasting away in front of eyes!  Her illness didn’t just affect her, it affected the whole family.  We were all on rock bottom and desperate for help.

“Over a number of months he treated her for her obsessive compulsive behaviour and her fear of being sick.  She is now fit, healthy and acting like a normal teenager. She travels and is doing well at school.

“We are now just relishing being a normal family again! It was a very long 2-3 years.  Don’t hesitate. Go and see him.”
