Conditions Treated:

Student Health

Students are frequently seen at the Clinic and the clinic has developed and continues to develop close working relationships with student health departments of universities. Dr Howells and colleagues are able to visit student health units to give advice and can lecture to counselling staff groups on relevant topics.

The Sloane Court Clinic is a psychiatric clinic offering psychiatric and psychological care to adults from pleasant contemporary premises close to Sloane Square. The Clinic does not have inpatient beds but can broker these when they are required.

A particular focus of our routine clinical work has been providing psychiatric and psychological care to students based in London and nationally. We are able to provide easily accessible, rapid and comprehensive evaluations of students experiencing stress, adjustment problems or requiring on-going psychiatric or psychological care – perhaps as a result of relocation to London or out of London universities.

We can provide advice to the staff of university student health and counselling bodies, by telephone, email or letter – see Contacts.

We can provide comprehensive psychiatric and psychological care, and assist overseas doctors to access physicians or surgeons for non-psychiatric conditions.

The emphasis of the care model is to provide a convenient, comfortable and friendly service using mainstream evidence-based psychiatric and psychological methods. We place equal emphasis on physical and psychological treatments, always carefully assessing a patient before considering psychological or pharmacological treatment, or an admixture of the two.

Close liaison with primary care physicians is an important aspect of patient management. We write regularly with clinical updates, and where appropriate liaise by phone.

Urgent referrals can generally be seen. We routinely offer early morning and evening appointments, and try to accommodate patient’s particular needs – for example can provide a series of appointments in a week if a patient is coming from abroad, and can arrange to liaise with or see a student’s parents often at short notice.

The range of conditions treated includes the bulk of psychiatry. We are not specialists in eating disorders or drug addiction but can make initial assessments and assist patients to access appropriate specialist help through our large network of London-based colleagues in these fields. We are pleased to offer a range of psychological therapies (see list) as well as particular types of counselling psychotherapy.

It should be noted we do not have wheelchair access as there is a short flight of steps to the clinic entrance.


We can advise on service development, pathways into NHS care, and have provided lectures and training study afternoons on clinical topics relevant to student psychological care. Let us know your requirements through a call, email or letter – see Contacts.
