Portobello Behavioural Health works with agents, management and production companies to support individuals experiencing mental or behavioural health problems who are currently unable to access residential treatment due to their work commitments. Through careful planning, working in partnership we provide support which is tailored to the individual’s specific needs. We work with clients in the film, television, stage and music industries and are accustomed to tailoring our work to the needs of shooting, touring and travel commitments.
Typically our work with entertainment clients entails:
- Comprehensive case management, to ensure that competing interests are understood and managed whilst not compromising the client’s welfare;
- Coaching, by our specialist team, both highly trained and experienced at working with clients in the entertainment industry. We can provide coaches both for short sessions as well as providing 24/7 support, accompanying clients on tour or on set, both domestically and abroad;
- Therapy, provided by one of our experienced clinicians to ensure that the underlying issues affecting the individual are being tackled and fundamental change can be achieved. Given the complications of schedules, our therapists can see clients both from one of our offices in London or Guildford or through online sessions.
Our network of contacts within the behavioural health sector means we can facilitate and accompany quick referrals to treatment centres or other relevant professionals. Our connection with vetted centres, across the world, ensures we can always find a suitable option which provides a high level of care with the utmost discretion.
Our track record of work in the entertainment industry has helped both artists and their wider team to keep schedules, avoid costly delays and ensure that recovery and progress are being achieved.
In addition to the direct services we provide for our clients, we can also help raise awareness and deliver staff training on issues relating to mental health and addiction. This can be invaluable for management companies, producers and lawyers seeking to understand the most effective way to support or intervene when clients they work with are experiencing mental health difficulties
