Patient Testimonials

“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.”
