Capital Clinical Psychology Consulting Rooms – Practitioners

We are achieving this by offering our consulting rooms to like-minded, highly professional and qualified psychologists, clinical psychologists and psychiatrists to run their own private practices (click here or scroll down for details of our current practitioners).
