A psychological assessment looks in some depth into a persons diffculties and reasons for seeking help so as to determine the most appropriate intervention. I will meet with you initially for 1hour and 30 minutes to carry out an assessment.
I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and so this also offers an opportunity to establish whether my service can meet your needs and whether we can work effectively together. If we decide with you to proceed, we shall discuss which is the best therapeutic model for you and the number of sessions.
I am also available to carry out medico-legal assessments depending on the requirements of clients and their legal representatives.
Number of sessions
This depends on individual needs and subject to mutual agreement. It is usually between 4 and 24 sessions.
I offer a confidential service. It is however my practice, with your consent, to inform your GP on the commencement and completion of therapy.
Like all qualified therapists I also discuss my cases with a qualified supervisor on a no-names basis.
