Psychological assessment and formulation
We offer psychological assessment as the initial access point for our services.
The assessment is undertaken by a highly qualified Practitioner Psychologist, who has a broad understanding of a range of psychological knowledge and interventions. There are many different approaches to psychological therapy and we believe it is important to first develop with our clients a ‘shared understanding’ of their needs and goals, before deciding what approach to intervention may best be suited to them.
The development of a ‘shared understanding’ (or formulation) draws upon your own individual experiences and context, explores factors which may be underpinning or maintaining your difficulties, and identifies your strengths and the supports around you. This understanding is then used to inform the intervention approach which the evidence informs us is most likely to help. This may include individual, couple, or family therapy, but may also include addressing other practical or social factors that may be contributing to your difficulties.
