Zoom and Telephone

Some people want clarification around whether a particular diagnosis is present or not. I offer assessment and diagnosis for a range of Disorders. This generally takes 3 - 4 sessions. 

 

I will use tests and questionnaires, observations and an informal Interview to determine diagnosis.  I endeavour to make this process as safe and supportive as possible. An opportunity to discuss concerns or nerves will be a start point. 

A treatment plan and ongoing therapy is optional depending on your diagnosis and my availability. 

Please note, I can screen for ADHD and provide indication about whether or not ADHD needs further exploration. I cannot formally diagnose ADHD as this diagnosis requires psychiatrist assessment. I do not provide screening or assessment for Autism Spectrum Disorder. 

If you would like an assessment please state this in your initial email.

Assessment and Diagnosis 

Eye-Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

I am trained and qualified to perform EMDR, which is currently one of the leading evidence-based treatments for adverse life events, PTSD, C-PTSD, childhood trauma, negative or stuck beliefs, OCD, Anxiety, Phobias and many other conditions. 

For standard EMDR please allow a minimum of 10 sessions. This includes assessment, identifying targets/goals, Increasing your resources, Performing Eye movements, Installation and enough time to de-brief and close EMDR smoothly.

Please email me specifically stating that you are interested in EMDR. 

Brief Solution Focussed Therapy (BSFT)
Approximately 6 sessions

This service is best suited to people who respond better to being guided by a therapist in a goal directed way.

It is a solution focused approach and less focussed on problems or the source of struggles. The objective is to come away feeling more hopeful and confident, with some practical tools and strategies. 

Please state specifically that you require BSFT. Please note that not all situations are suitable for BSFT, this will be assessed prior to your first session.
