We offer consultation services to professionals in the cosmetic surgery industry to help to streamline the experience for clients. This includes a clinical assessment of clients that a cosmetic professional feels may be suffering from a mental health condition or psychological difficulties that may negatively impact on the outcome of the cosmetic intervention.
The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) Code of Conduct states that a pre-assessment of a client's suitability for a cosmetic procedure must include an assessment of their psychological state, and the Royal College of Surgeons state in their Professional Standards for Cosmetic Practice that potential clients must have a brief psychological assessment and that the surgeon must consider whether to refer the client on to a clinical psychologist for further assessment and treatment.
We provide a free screening questionnaire for Cosmetic Professionals to use in deciding whether to refer someone for a more detailed psychological assessment. Please contact us for details of this questionnaire. We also provide staff training on this questionnaire to ensure administration and interpretation of the psychometric tool are accurate.
We work in partnership with Cosmetic Practices to ensure that client's psychological well-being is appropriately managed throughout the process of undertaking cosmetic procedures. To enquire about individual assessment sessions, or to discuss the prospect of a partnership with our clinic please contact us
