NSCAP Clinical Services Logo



We are a provider of highly specialist psychoanalytic child psychotherapy assessment and treatment packages.

NSCAP is already well known as a teaching and training institution but our distinctive approach comes directly from our experience as clinicians. In our work, we use specialist observation skills, a capacity for self-reflective practice, and an understanding of unconscious processes to help people make the best possible use of their relationships, which in turn helps them to develop as individuals.

We have clinical space at our premises in Leeds to provide high quality facilities for on-site clinical services and are seeking to extend the premises.  NCS also delivers services off site in appropriate settings.

Commissioning NCS

NCS adopts an approach which is rooted in evidence systematically gathered and evaluated from clinical experience, a psychoanalytic observational theoretical framework which has stood the test of time, and contemporary research findings emerging from a range of disciplines and modalities alongside psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

NCS offers high quality, specialist Psychoanalytic State of Mind Assessments, Parent-Infant Relational Assessments and Assessments for Psychotherapy.

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is available on a long term basis as well as time limited manualised interventions and brief (4-6 sessions) work.

NSCAP Clinical Services can be commissioned on a block or individual basis.

External psycho-dynamically informed supervision would be helpful for a team working with complex individuals who present with significant personality issues.
