Sometimes it is not obvious what might be causing difficulties that children or adults may be facing at particular points in their lives. Lifespan Therapy carries out psychological assessments to help understand the underlying reasons for those difficulties and identify what might be maintaining them. A psychological assessment will also identify the strengths of the person and how those might be built upon to overcome any difficulties or challenges.
A psychological assessment can also help people understand themselves and their experiences more clearly, such as an assessment to determine if a child or adult is autistic.
Psychological assessments are followed up with a detailed report that includes recommendations for further support.
