How does the Telephone Treatment Programme work?
With patients in over thirty five countries around the world, the clinic team have developed extensive protocols for working with people by telephone and video Skype. This programme teaches patients the fundamentals of the key psychology techniques in a highly cost effective way, by utilising the clinic’s extensive media programmes.
The Telephone Treatment Programme lasts around three months (although there is flexibility for patients to adjust this as appropriate), and serves as the best possible kickstart to treatment on the psychology side for patients unable to attend the clinic or a 90 Day Programme.

This sounds like a lot of information, could it be too overwhelming for me?
Having worked with the thousands of people we have (and nearly all of the psychology department having themselves been through their own severe health challenges) we are only too aware of how important it is to do things at a pace that is supportive. However, we have also found that by utilising the clinic’s many media based resources, it acts as a great support to treatment. Over what time scale you work through them, be it in a week, a month or even over a year, that is of course dictated by your own personal situation.
Prior to the development of this format on the psychology side, many patients just had the telephone sessions without any of the additional resources. This alone still worked very well, but we’ve found the various resources significantly support you in doing more work with yourself, and therefore ultimately saving the amount of money needing to be spent on sessions.
What if I feel that I need shorter sessions, or need more time between appointments to assimilate?
The Telephone Treatment Programme is designed to ensure that you cover the essentials of the basic tools on the psychology side of treatment. The programme is designed around timescales of what seems to work for the “average” patient. In reality, you will be dictating as and when you have your sessions, with the guidance of your practitioner, as ultimately every patient is different in their needs.
What does it cost?
The actual retail value of the CDs, book and DVD is £225, and the cost of the telephone sessions is £500. However, because the rights to nearly all of the media included is owned by Alex Howard and the clinic, we are able to make it available at much lower prices. We do this because we have seen the difference it makes to people, and obviously want to do all we can to support patients. The total cost of the telephone treatment programme including all the products is therefore £545, (though the actual value is £725).
Is it possible to pay by instalments?
Yes, to help make the programme more affordable, you can pay over the period of the programme. There is however, an addition £5 admin charge to cover the accounting costs. The instalments can be paid via our online payment page in four monthly instalments of £145. For clients living abroad, we can take also take credit card payments following the same format.
What can I expect at the end of the programme?
The programme is designed to cover the core elements of the psychology side of the clinic, whilst utilising the extensive media resources available. For some people, this will be all they need on the psychology side. For others, it will be the foundation to then doing further work with their practitioner if necessary. This is also an excellent treatment option for those focusing their resources on the nutrition side of treatment, but want to make sure they have covered the core elements of psychology as well.
Should I do this or The 90 Day Programme?
If you are able to make it to a 90 Day Programme, we believe this is the best option available, due to the immersion in the tools over two and half days, and the great benefit from working in an intimate group, surrounded by assistants that have themselves been through similar challenges. However, if this is not possible, working by telephone is an excellent alternative. And of course, when possible, you can then attend one of the clinic’s other courses.
Are there ways to have contact with others going through the programme, maybe even in my local area?
Absolutely, the clinic has its own social networking website. Rapidly growing with members around the world, you will be able to contact other patients working with the clinic, either of a similar age or even in your local area. This, coupled with www.SecretsToRecovery.com (to which you receive the first four modules as part of your package), provide exceptional ongoing support and inspiration on your path.
