Diagnostic, developmental, psychological and neuropsychological assessments can be carried out with a view to creating a personal profile of strengths and needs. Detailed reports can be provided with recommendations based on your specific profile.
Understanding and adjusting to diagnosis is an important process for a person and their family. Psychological support may include information and advice, counselling or adjustment therapy, making plans for the future or exploring new ways of relating.
People with developmental and long term conditions can often benefit from psychological interventions to find skills and strategies to overcome or cope with some of the challenges of everyday life. These may be challenges associated with their condition or challenges associated with living in an environment that hasn’t made appropriate adjustments.
Psychosocial, behavioural, cognitive-behavioural and family therapy can be adapted to suit your particular style, profile and preferences. Psychological therapy can be useful for people experiencing problems with anxiety, low mood, anger, depression, relationships, self-esteem, bereavement and loss, fears and phobias, health management and more.
Positive behaviour support:
Understanding behaviour in context is an essential part of designing effective behaviour support plans and strategies. Careful psychological assessment of behaviour that you or others find challenging can result in effective interventions and lasting change without resorting to restrictive methods.
