We understand that a diagnosis of neurological challenges can often be the turning point in being able to access further support, and that obtaining a diagnosis can often be a lengthy process on the NHS. We are proud to partner with the NHS to offer both NHS and self-pay ASD and ADHD services to ensure that we can offer our support to as many people as possible.
Autism and ADHD assessments are a key part of our offering that result in a thorough report and signposting to useful resources. Our consultant-led, multi-disciplinary team will work with you to provide actionable insights, no matter where you are in your journey, and offer expert advice to help you or a family member. Our ASD and ADHD services are suitable for both children and adults, meaning that it is never too late to be assessed.
We have created a new, dedicated Autism and ADHD website that goes into detail about the process of working towards a diagnosis of autism and neurodivergent conditions, and offers resources written by our clinicians to help you throughout your journey. For more information on our ASD and ADHD assessments and services, you can also get in touch with one of our team today.

At Provide Wellbeing, it is our goal to make you feel at ease in our clinic venues, and to ensure that your experience is a positive one. The assessments that we provide are not a test with right and wrong answers, but a holistic approach that takes into account previous history, key concerns, and responses on the day.
The whole process was simple and quick after being referred over by the NHS due to long waiting times. I was so anxious before hand but I had no need to be. Hannah was absolutely amazing and so kind- she understood my son and his struggles better than any professional we have met before. She is special! Dr Band was easy to talk to. Overall, the whole experience was very positive. Thank you
Very informative and comfortable experience.
Arriving 20 mins early, they were ready for me and my son which was amazing. The facilities were very clean and cosy warm. The staff were super friendly and were so helpful. My son and I were nervous as we didn't know what to expect and were soon relaxed and chilled. Overall if I could give more than a 5 star rating I would. Couldn't recommend them enough.
Warm and inviting environment, staff were professional, friendly and informative.
Everything was perfect and quick, well organised
I was seen at the time of my appointment, Dr Band was very charming and welcoming as were the SLT and when it was too overwhelming for my daughter they all stopped and put her needs first which was very reassuring.
The Specialist and Amy were amazing from start to finish, they really took the time to learn about P.. as a person. So they had a great all round picture of P.... I will always be forever grateful to the team at Provide for their diagnosis and making it a positive experience.
We were all extremely nervous before this appointment. The staff put us all at ease, and explained everything that was going on.
Made to feel at ease. Very good listener.
The initial impression of our experience was how well the clinic was set out for a neurodivergent individual, the decor was refreshing & calming, the waiting room was empty apart from us, my son was particularly impressed with the toilet facilities, he hates using bathrooms, particularly public restrooms but commented on how lovely yours was & how clean it was. The staff were friendly & made us feel comfortable…. my son really enjoyed talking to the ladies who carried out his assessment & he came out of the clinic smiling & pleased with how his experience had gone, as was I. I am confident that his diagnosis will help him on the road to accepting himself for who he is :o) Thank you.
The staff were absolutely amazing, my son struggled to leave the car, they...started the assessment outside until he felt safe to go in the building.
I felt at ease, as did my son. Everyone was friendly, professional and just amazing.
The setting was really calm and relaxed and the staff were all friendly and approachable. They really put us all at ease and were very knowledgeable and experienced.
The staff were knowledgeable and so kind. They really listened and helped us to understand our child's strengths as well as struggles. We left the service feeling extremely positive and relieved.
It was lovely to attend yesterday for our sons assesment. Staff were welcoming and all introduced themselves to us. Our son was made to feel at ease which was evident in his willingness to separate from us for a short period. Staff were very informative and we also felt heard and our experiences acknowledged.
Our experience with Provide wellbeing was faultless... we were treated with respect and given information to help our daughter to know where she was going...We didn't feel rushed and felt our views were heard and listened too by the doctor and he was extremely calm, professional and made us feel relaxed...we knew our daughter was in great hands...It was so comforting and validating as parents with an autistic child for someone to see what we do...I would recommend your services to anyone requiring a quick, faultless, professional, caring assessment and more professionals should be using your services to help the children struggling within the Essex area...
As you can imagine I was very apprehensive going to the appointment. My daughter was anxious and was begging me not to leave her when we got there but it was such a calm and welcoming environment that her worries soon went. All the team were very friendly, thank you.
We felt comfortable and especially liked that we were the only family in at that time. It made it less stressful and easier on our son. I thought the specialists were great. Our son relaxed quickly and went in for the assessment easily... It was very friendly, warm and professional. They really got an accurate sense of our child and understood him well... Thank you.
Everyone involved with the diagnosis process made us feel at ease. When our son went to play he was having such a great time that he didn't want to leave. In fact, he asked this morning if he could go back and see them again.
The place, the location was very nice and calm. The service was very very good. We saw Dr Amin, such a lovely man, made us as a family very comfortable and at ease. We also saw Hannah and Amy, they were very good with my child. Our experience at this place has been outstanding...Thank you so much for our positive experience.
Hannah Westwood and Dr Band were both warm, friendly and compassionate, putting my daughter and I at ease straight away . They were extremely professional. Thank you
Absolutely top quality service from start to finish. Booking in was swift and easy. I got an appointment offered within weeks and the staff during my son's assessment were outstanding. They explained everything to us in detail and offered some great feedback. Would definitely recommend
I have had the best experience with Provide Wellbeing. My son has finally had a diagnosis for ADHD and the Dr...made the process so easy and smooth. Absolutely over the moon.
We were treated with respect and care throughout and they really looked after my daughter, putting her at ease as much as they could. They addressed all of our questions and concerns and explained everything before, during and after. I would highly recommend this team. They have helped us enormously. Thank you very much.
Dr Band, Hannah and Amie were all so good with our Son. He enjoyed the experience and it wasn't stressful at all. Very impressed!
Very welcoming on arrival and my daughter quickly settled into the independent play which wasn't necessarily expected! She was made comfortable and was engaged very quickly. Thorough and clear with outcomes shared carefully and thoughtfully.
The facility was incredible. So impressed that we were able to be the only ones there. Superb for ASD assessments and children that will in all likelihood feel overwhelmed. Amazing supportive staff who took extra time to talk to my child and me after the assessment was completed regarding their trans gender feelings. They then adjusted the report to include my child's name and gender preferences. First time we've vocalised this to any healthcare professionals. It was dealt with so sensitively and supportively. Thank you
Staff were so welcoming when we first came in and made us all feel at ease. The Dr was interested and even asked to keep my notes. The ladies who did the practical assessment were nice and seemed well informed and gave a clear explanation post assesment. Even though my daughter masks and is high functioning there seemed to be no doubt about the diagnosis. They noticed subtle behaviours and referred to them during the de brief. I was so happy to recieve the outcome in the day too. Overall we're very happy with the experience and would recommend Provide Wellbeing to others
The team at Provide well-being were all very welcoming making our visit & overall experience relaxed & calm. They adapted to my son's anxiety when he left the room & reassuring to us as family. They delivered the outcome without my child present which I will forever be eternally grateful to them for as I already knew what the answer was going to possibly be but I was still overwhelmed with emotions & they made sure that my son did not have to witness my reaction to his diagnosis.
Was extremely helpful made myself feel at ease with everything going on and made it a comfortable environment for my boys whilst interacting with them. Explained everything what was happening to what they had seen and was able to give me the outcome on the day!
I just want to thank the three of you for everything you’ve done. Your service was incredible, you were all so supportive, caring, helpful and understanding.
The entire process went very smoothly. I was impressed with all the information that was gathered on top of what I provided. Dr Band was absolutely lovely. He was perfect with my daughter. Thank you
Such a lovely kind doctor. So good with my little girl. And so good to me also. Very daunting and confusing process but the doctor was so helpful explaining things to me in simple terms. Highly recommended
Hannah and Amy were amazing. Made me, my husband and twins so comfortable. Explained everything in detail and were both so caring. I couldn't thank them enough for making it easier on us.
Amazing! We (13 daughter & I) waited only 4 weeks for ASD assessment following referral to the Chelmer clinic from our community paediatrician. The clinic is new and set in lovely grounds. It is central and east to find. We were made to feel relaxed from the phone call to book the appt where things were explained, to the information sent via email so we'd know what to expect. On arrival Dr Band, Helen and Claire (?) were so friendly and immediately put us at ease. We felt listened to and not rushed.
Second time visiting, this time for myself and not my child. Dr Band is always very welcoming. Explains everything clearly. I recommend the services already for children but will extend my recommendation to adults. Thank you
Dr Band was very welcoming and displayed a genuine empathetic and caring manner to my son. My son felt at ease with Dr Band which meant he was able to be honest about how he was feeling. The appointments were prompt, thorough and detailed. We were also given a plan of care for my son going forward.
Amazing, kind and patient especially Dr. Band. Just really lovely person through and through.
