Augmentive: Leading the Way in Personalised Mental Health Care

Augmentive is at the forefront of developing personalised mental health care in the UK, centred around our CQC-regulated psychiatry clinic. Our clinic is led by Sarah Norman (Co-Founder and Registered Manager) and Dr. Chetna Kang (Consultant Psychiatrist and Medical Director).

The Platform: Our secure platform enables each patient to find and access personalised care from the right specialist at the right time.

Additionally, you will benefit from an extensive referral network including hundreds of psychologists and therapists who are accessible through Augmentive. Our team is on hand to ensure that your patients have a smooth experience throughout their care pathway, maintaining a personal touch at every step.

Our Success: The Augmentive ecosystem is flourishing, with bookings increasing by over 1,250% in 2022, a momentum that continued through 2023.

We are delighted to have supported companies such as Multiverse, Net-A-Porter, and Buchanan. As part of our clinic, you will have opportunities to contribute to thought leadership pieces and deliver psycho-education.

Our Mission: We are deeply driven by the need to make it easier to access effective mental health support. The company was formed after witnessing the terrible impact of slow or ineffective systems. Since then, we have created a groundbreaking platform designed to deliver optimal clinical outcomes as efficiently as possible. Our leadership team has a profound understanding of the mental health field and state-of-the-art technology development. We are now looking to expand our clinical team and deliver top-quality care on a larger scale.
