Recent Patient Testimonials

“Meeting Dr Westgarth was a turning point for our family. We felt he really cared about our child and instead of feeling helpless we felt supported. With Dr Westgarth’s help our daughter is now back in mainstream schooling, doing well and our lives have turned around. In fact we feel as if we have a life again.”

with Autism Spectrum Disorder

“Our teenage son had been struggling for a while with low mood and anxiety. Dr Westgarth put our son at ease from the first assessment and as a family we felt that he did an excellent job in unpicking the problem. Dr Westgarth’s clear explanations and lovely manner helped our son to begin to come to terms with his difficulties. Feeling that he was understood by a professional and receiving  a diagnosis of social phobia helped our son to understand that  this was something he could recover from. He was very comfortable working with Dr Westgarth and we have seen big improvements in his mood and motivation. We would highly recommend Dr Westgarth’s Service.”
