8 reasons to choose Altum Health

Recognising that you might need some help with your mental health is the first step toward recovery. But finding the right therapist to support you can feel like an overwhelming task.


For therapy to be effective, it’s important that you feel confident and comfortable with your therapist, and that you’re in the right place for you. 


In this post, our aim is to help you understand what we’re like, so that you can decide if we’re right for you. So, we’ve succinctly outlined what we feel makes Altum Health different from other clinics. But don’t just take our word for it. Some of our lovely clients have agreed to let us publish what they think, too.


So without further ado, here’s how we promise to support you to deal with the hard parts of life, so you can move forward with greater clarity and confidence.


1. A personal approach

We know how important it is to find a therapist you can trust and a treatment plan which suits your unique needs. To not feel that you’ll be swallowed up or ‘processed’ within a large, faceless organisation. For this reason, we offer entirely tailored treatment plans, and personable, convenient, and flexible treatment options.


It was amazing having somebody who was completely on your side, completely for you and only for you. Someone in your corner fighting alongside you, your demons, and your battles. Lisa (30)


2. Compassion and acceptance

We take our work seriously but we hold our expertise lightly. Our therapists are warm, welcoming, open, and relaxed. We don’t judge, we are on your team.


When you think about therapy, you think it’s going to be so serious, but the ability for someone to roll their eyes at you and for that to be entirely safe and comfortable and fine, that was unexpected. It makes the hard stuff less hard.” Cordelia (24)  


3. A nurturing environment

We’re here for you. To gently listen and support you. Helping you to move forward with your life. We offer complimentary group sessions such as our Embodiment Skills Group, to support your recovery. Old school therapists in a stark, clinical space, we are not.


“A really caring team – who are always responsive to our needs, go the extra mile and are so patient, nurturing and supportive of our daughter.” Emma


4. Safety and containment

Therapy should not be intimidating or layered with lots of bureaucracy. Our clinics are welcoming, cosy, modern and vibrant. Our team is approachable and friendly. We range in age, ethnicity and background. You’ll feel relaxed and comfortable, free to open up and express your feelings without fear. 


“In the last year, I have achieved more than I ever thought possible and have really surprised myself. For the first time, I have actually looked forward to therapy instead of dreading it.” Ellie


5. Licensed, professional therapists

Our leading team of psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists and dieticians have years of experience in a wide variety of therapeutic disciplines offering expert care for your emotional health and well-being.


“I am so grateful to the team at Altum Health for everything they have done for me. They are professional, compassionate practitioners who provide the very best care for their clients. An outstanding service.” Naomi


6. Expertise

We’re proud to be specialists in the treatment of eating disorders. We can also help you to understand and manage difficulties such as anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, body image difficulties, ASD, and ADHD.


“Altum health is just brilliant, they use research based therapies and strategies mixed with huge amounts of compassion. I’m a psychologist myself and I’ve learned so much from Courtney, it’s made me understand myself so much better and become a better therapist because of that.” Vicky


7. Resources and on the spot support

Even when we’re not with you, help is always available through a range of additional useful content and free downloads on our blog and social pages. 


“I’ve never had a therapist who has understood and communicated with me like you have. I still hear your voice encouraging me, accepting me and not judging me, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the genuine care, patience, honesty and support you have shown me.” Laura


8. We offer a sense of hope

We’ll let our clients speak for us on this one…


What I didn’t expect was the speed at which it [therapy] started to work. Within three or four sessions I was feeling a lot of relief. It really helped me to get through a lot of hard stuff and allowed me to be able to control my mental health so I can be more productive, feel at peace, and live a normal life.“ Alexander (27) 


“I’ve gone from being severely ill with anorexia to a much healthier place and better able to manage my internal battles. My family dynamic and relationships have improved, as has my self-esteem.“ Amelia (28) 


“For my mental health, therapy with Altum Health has been the best. It has taught me coping mechanisms that are more formal, how to write down your emotions and look at them differently, and how to recognise patterns that you know can lead one way. ” Cordelia (24)  


“Therapy with Altum Health has helped me in all areas of my personality. It wasn’t just about helping with eating habits, it’s all encompassing. All your psychological wounds, traumas, everything is looked at, challenged and worked on. You go to Altum Health to solve an eating disorder and come out more rounded and self-aware. You actually choose your behaviours. You don’t just bulldoze through life. It’s humbling. It challenges who you are as a person. It gave me grit. That was completely unexpected.” Lisa (30)
