Psychological Assessment

First appointments with our service are also known as assessment appointments. 

 

We are currently offering video link appointments only. We see clients aged 14 years and above. Our online clinics run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9 a.m and 3 p.m. 

 

Assessment appointments last up to 90 minutes, during which we will work with you to develop a shared psychological understanding of the difficulty, how it might have developed, your goals for change and the psychological support that may be helpful in achieving these.  We may ask you to complete a questionnaire to help us measure some of the difficulties you are experiencing. With your permission, it is sometimes helpful to speak with other professionals involved such as the medical team involved.

 

If the appointment is for a young person we will offer to see them on their own (depending on their age), as well as together with parents/carers. We will ask you to complete some questionnaires to help us measure some of the difficulties you might be experiencing. With your permission, It is sometimes helpful to speak with other professionals involved such as the medical team involved.

At the end of the first session, we will discuss a plan for evidence-based therapy that is tailored to you. You will be given a tailored plan of what might help, how many sessions we advise and self-help tips to try at home. We provide a full written assessment report as part of our assessment package.
