Consultation, Assessment and Intervention Processes

Telephone Consultation
Prior to any formal agreement of work, an initial free telephone consultation can be arranged to discuss your situation, how Hannah may be able to help and what this would entail.
Psychological Assessment
Brief Initial Assessment: An initial assessment of 1 or 2 sessions takes place to develop a clear understanding of the challenges and a focus for future intervention.

Comprehensive Psychological Assessment: A comprehensive psychological assessment will be recommended for those difficulties and challenges which are complex and less clear. The number of sessions will be contingent upon the individual situation.
Psychological Intervention
Intervention sessions are determined by;

♦     Outcome of the initial assessment

♦     Agreement with the client

♦     Complexity of the difficulties and challenges being worked through

♦     Therapeutic approach

Individual sessions range from 50 minutes to 1½ hours
