Consultant Psychotherapist Norman Wright, MSc Int Psych. Dip Clin Sup.

Cosmetic Surgery Counselling at Karidis Clinic

Alongside his private practice, Norman is a link tutor on a BSc Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy Training programme, Vice-Chairperson and independent panel member to fostering and adoption panels, and consultant to social care, health, education and cosmetic/aesthetic clinicians and professionals; have been contributing factors that have led to the development of TWI – The Wright Initiative. TWI initiatives have at their core, a bespoke approach to Emotional Relational and Psychological – ERP – support that facilitates individuals toward healthy interactions with others and the world around them.

One such initiative, PaPPS Initiative, has been developed to address the emotional, relational and psychological wellbeing of people considering or having had elective aesthetic surgery. Mr Alex Karidis – Medical Director – strives to deliver the very best patient experience possible – far beyond what can be achieved during the surgical procedure itself – Norman is, therefore, delighted to join the team at Karidis Clinic.

Norman’s philosophy:

The patient will attain the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their emotional, relational and psychological wellbeing has been addressed by them and their surgeon thus providing integrated support

PaPPS stands for pre- and post-operative patient support and entails an initial three, one-to-one sessions with Norman, either at the Karidis Clinic or via Skype; the first is when you are making the decision to go ahead and the final two are after surgery to ensure that you are adjusting to the often profound changes that can occur after treatments, procedures and surgeries.
