PaPPS Initiative

“The PaPPS service that you offer patients pre and post is a breath of fresh air. All aspects of this service are truly fantastic.

Norman understands my well-being and guides me in the direction that I need without being judgmental in anyway.

It’s a service that is paramount when making such huge changes to your body from having surgery.”

The Wright Initiative sees the person behind the patient and is aware that both the patient and surgeon want the best experience of their surgical procedure possible. Given the negative press over the past years we appreciate the importance of supporting both the patient and the surgeon ensuring the best patient care and support is given. With an increasing number of people seeking cosmetic surgery, it is imperative that therapeutic support becomes part of your journey. Pre- and post-operative evaluation is essential in supporting the surgeon to assess the ERP well-being of the patient ensuring that the surgeon, too, sees the person behind the patient.

  • PaPPS is a consumer driven initiative addressing the emotional, relational and psychological wellbeing for people who are considering or having elective surgical or invasive aesthetic procedures.
  • PaPPS has been pioneered to support both the patient and surgeon ensuring that every aspect has been addressed and allows the patient to recognise their emotional, relational and psychological well being
  • Alongside supporting the patients, The Wright Initiative works with surgeons to ensure that their patients are prepared, mentally and physically, for the changes they will experience prior to and after surgery.

The Wright Initiative, headed by respected psychotherapist Norman Wright, specialises in offering patients one-to-one support, both before and after undergoing a procedure.

The goal of The Wright Initiative is a simple one: we believe that every patient deserves the right to be able to make an informed decision about their procedure. This means ensuring that the patient considers, amongst other things, the impact that cosmetic treatment may have on their emotional, relational and psychological wellbeing, both in the short-term and in the more distant future.

The bespoke PaPPS Initiative takes the form of brief and focal sessions that are held at TWI’s Nottingham and Harley Street clinics or via Skype. During the course of a minimum of two 60-minute sessions, the patient will attain the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their emotional, relational & psychological well-being has been addressed by them and their surgeon thus providing integrated support.

What our PaPPS patients have to say about their experience:

“The session is very personal and talks a lot about MY journey. Without this service I would feel more anxious not being able to really talk to someone who knows how YOU are really feeling.”

“With Norman I could really talk about myself in quite a personal way without having him judge me. I feel rather calm, like I have got a lot of things of my chest. I feel reassured and positive.”

“Norman understands my feelings inside and out. I feel like I have had a chance to really talk about how I feel. I feel calm and happy that I’ve had to chance to talk to someone who really understands my emotional well-being.”

“I found my session helpful; I felt like Norman really understood me and could relate to my feelings and views.”

“My session was relaxing and therapeutic.  Talking to Norman was very enjoyable – I had reservations as to whether talking through Skype might cause communication to be a little stilted but these were quashed within seconds of seeing his friendly face.  It was a very positive experience that allowed me to put my surgical journey into words in a way that I haven’t been able to before.”

“Norman’s questions provided structure for the session, we were able to talk about various aspects of my wellbeing according to what I felt was needed.”

“ My session allowed me the time to reflect and ask myself some questions about what I needed emotionally to get through my surgical procedure and come out psychologically comfortable”

“My PaPPS session made me reflect upon questions I would not have normally asked myself”

“ I welcome PaPPS  and feel very strongly that it should be part of everyone’s  journey”
