How do clinical psychologists help people?


Our Clinical Psychologists specialise in providing psychological assessment and interventions to infants & their families, children, adolescents, adults and couples.  Some patients experience particular emotional or mental health problems, such as depression or schizophrenia, while others have difficulties with their thinking (also known as ‘cognitive’ problems) and these can take many forms, such as problems with memory or perception after a head injury, a learning disability or dementia. 

Our skilled team of Clinical Psychologists provide psychological assessments for a range of issues, including attachment difficulties, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and intellectual, cognitive and learning ability.  We also screen for Autistic Spectrum Disorder.  

We use effective, evidenced-based therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Systemic or Family Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). All our clinicians, who usually also work within the NHS, receive regular clinical supervision to make sure that each patient gets up-to-date treatment that best fits their individual needs.  


Areas which we can help with include:


Psychological problems do not always fall into neat categories and descriptions and you may be experiencing a mix of emotional or psychological issues which bother you and hold you back in some way. 


Initial Assessment


An initial assessment will usually take between 1½ to 3 hours and may be spread over 2 appointments. During the assessment you will be asked about the current problems, relevant history and what you would like to change, address, or gain through psychological therapy.  Working together, you and your psychologist will come to a shared understanding of the problem, discuss the most suitable type of therapy and the approximate number of sessions required.  A short written report of your assessment and initial psychological formulation can be provided if required. 


Therapy sessions


Therapy sessions last about 50 minutes and the frequency of these will be discussed with you after the initial assessment.  We normally recommend a minimum of 2 sessions a month, at two-weekly intervals, for therapy to be effective. 


Medio-Legal


We provide assessments for adults and children, in personal injury cases and criminal law.

All of our Clinical Psychologists possess private professional indemnity cover and are registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS).
