Before beginning any therapeutic intervention, an assessment session takes place. This appointment lasts 50 minutes. Confidentiality will be discussed and therapeutic goals identified. An estimate of approximate number of sessions will be provided. There is no obligation to continue into therapeutic intervention at this stage. A further appointment can be organised at this time should both parties feel this to be appropriate.
Depending on the nature of the presenting difficulty, a range of therapies are drawn upon to specifically tailor therapy to the identified goals. Progress is monitored and reviewed throughout the therapeutic process.
When working with young people, we aim to include parents in the assessment and treatment process, feeling that parental support can be key to psychological improvement. However, if a young person over the age of 16 wishes to be seen without a parent present, we are happy to work in this way should we assess it to be appropriate.
Sometimes parents prefer to meet to discuss their child’s difficulties without their child being present. This can be particularly helpful when a child is younger in age.
If you feel that you or your young person would benefit from our services but are not local to our practices, sessions are available by means of confidential, secure, encrypted video therapy. The flexibility of therapy at home fits with a busy life and allows you to feel comfortable and relaxed in your own space. It also enables consistent care for example for young people going to University or parents working abroad. It can also benefit adults who are busy and unable to travel to appointments but wish to engage in regular sessions.
