Clinical Process
Assessment – An initial assessment session will normally last 90 minutes.

 During the assessment space will be provided to discuss any difficulties an individual/family may be experiencing and to think about how psychological assessment and/or therapy may be of benefit.  Simple questionnaires may also be completed.  Where appropriate clients may be signposted towards other relevant services.

Therapy – Following the initial assessment a number of therapy sessions will be offered.

 The timing and length of therapy will vary and will be reviewed at regular intervals.  Each session (60 minutes long) will provide clients with the space to talk, understand and reflect upon any difficulties they may be experiencing currently or have experienced in the past.
