HEWM - Health Education West Midlands

The Phoenix Psychology Group is the provider of psychological assessment and therapy for Doctors and Dentists in training within the Health Education West Midlands (HEWM) region. Trainees may be referred after consultation with the Professional Support Unit (PSU) or may self refer to Phoenix directly. All services are funded by HEWM and are therefore free at point of use. The current model is based on an assessment plus five therapy sessions.

Where possible, trainees will be offered an initial assessment session within ten working days of referral. This ninety-minute appointment is with a HCPC Registered Clinical or Counselling Psychologist and aims to assess and formulate the trainee’s psychological needs and agree an appropriate form of intervention if required. The assessment will be summarised in a brief letter which for PSU referred trainees will normally be shared with the PSU. Information regarding self-referred clients will only be shared if there is clear evidence following risk assessment of serious, imminent and/or likely harm to self or others. Therapy sessions can be offered with a Psychologist, Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Cognitive Behaviour Therapist and/or Psychiatrist depending on individual need.

Trainees may also choose to access online counselling via the Qwell service. This is a confidential 24/7 service that trainees can self-refer to without having consulted with the PSU or Phoenix. Please visit the Qwell website at https://www.qwellcounselling.com/ for more information and select ‘Health Education West Midlands’ on the support contract menu if wishing to join. Online counselling with Qwell may also be recommended by the trainee’s Case Manager at the PSU or following assessment with Phoenix.
