Assessment and therapeutic intervention
I offer appointments in Sale, Cheshire, although we may be able to arrange an alternative venue if this is mutually convenient. Appointments last for an hour and we will try to meet at a regular agreed time. We might meet weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
I will usually suggest meeting for one or two assessment sessions to start off with, and then we can agree how we will take things forward. This will be a joint decision, based on your individual needs and preferences. I will also refer to national and research guidance in my choice of approach.
Clinical psychologists are trained to assess all aspects of problem/s and generate an individualised formulation (an understanding of the development and maintenance of the problem/s) which guides our therapeutic intervention. We are trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches and modalities. Clinical psychologists are trained to work with people across the lifespan.
