Psicon Group

About Us

The Psicon Group comprises six areas of specialist psychological and health services: Adult Mental Health Services; Child, Young People and Family Services; Community-Based Neurological Rehabilitation Services; Occupational Health Services; Medico-Legal Services; and Neurodevelopmental Lifespan Services. Through these, we provide prompt access to high quality professionals offering consultations, assessments, therapy and rehabilitation.

Our services support a range of clients, from individuals and their families to corporations both local and larger, and from the uniformed services to schools, universities and other centres of education.

Additionally, the Psicon Group works in partnership with the NHS and other local authorities to provide individuals in the Kent area with access to psychological support for common mental health difficulties.

At the Psicon Group we are committed to offering the best psychological support and healthcare available. We take an innovative approach to the delivery of our services and ensure that they are of the highest standards in the industry.


Our History

Psicon was established in 1998 by Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Neuropsychologist Mr LJ Conradie. Our service originally focused on supporting individuals, local businesses and corporate clients in the effective management of mental health conditions. As the business expanded and client demand increased, the company relocated first to Dover Street, Canterbury, during 2002, then to 70 New Dover Road in 2008, and then, in 2016, to 15 New Dover Road.

Since Psicon’s inception we have been successful in developing quality psychological and health services due to excellent leadership from our senior staff and management team. Consultants in psychology and other specialist health services have contributed to new business developments and an increasing clinical expertise. We are now proud to offer a wide-range of specialist services: for children, younger people and families; for adults with mental health difficulties; in community rehabilitation following brain injury; and in assessment of and support for neurodevelopmental lifespan disorders. In addition, we provide expert witness services to solicitors and the court, and, since 2012, have been contracted by the NHS to support the mental health of individuals in Kent. 

Our ability to respond to the needs of not only the local population but also clients further afield has been recognised, and clients who contracted with us 18 years ago continue to use Psicon as their preferred provider of psychological support.

Our Core Values

Person Centred

People are at the heart of what we do; our clients are the focus of our services and we value our employees as an integral part of our service delivery. We recognise that each individual or organisation that comes to us as a client is unique and we offer tailored services for their specific needs.

Our aim is for our service to have a meaningful and lasting impact on the individuals, families and organisations we work with. We offer healthcare to the standard that we would wish for our own family and loved ones.

 

Platinum Standards

We strive for platinum standards across all aspects of our service delivery, from our clinical expertise to our business team, and from our administrative staff to the other professionals and organisations with whom we work.

We believe in recruiting and investing in the best employees (from clinical staff to our business and administration team) and focus on developing leaders and strong teams to help our company grow.

 

Innovation

We look for and embrace opportunities to develop our services to ensure that we are continuously able to provide access to the best healthcare and psychological support. We are open-minded and flexible in our ways of working.

 

Integrity

We are proud of the services we have delivered over time and strive to ensure that Psicon continues to be a name that can be trusted. Quality assurance is integral to our business activity and we strive to continuously improve our services to patients and their families by routinely asking clients to provide feedback. For best practice, we ensure that our services are firmly in line with industry standards.

 

Experience the Psicon Family

The Psicon Group’s company culture embraces the idea of ‘The Psicon Family’ in which we are open, work collaboratively, and support each other. We enjoy positive relationships with our clients and provide a warm and supportive environment for our service users.
