Psychological consultations

The LOC offers a 60 minute initial consultation free of charge, which will enable you to explore some of the difficulties you are facing. 


A support plan will then be developed incorporating a range of therapeutic techniques with the aim of enabling you to develop coping strategies whilst also providing an opportunity to reflect on your experiences.


Lucy is available at our flagship outpatient facility, 95 Harley Street, three days per week: Monday, Wednesday & Thursday.

Psychological support costs

Many private medical insurers will fund psychological support, where necessary, during your cancer treatment.


However, for those without insurance, we offer affordable self-pay rates.
