The Psychology Service has a primary role of providing high-quality assessment and formulation of service user’s psychological and mental health problems.
What services do we offer?
For mental health difficulties we provide evidence-based treatments as recommended by NICE guidelines to reduce distress associated with these disorders.
We also supplement this work with additional neuropsychological assessments of cognitive functioning and clarification of diagnostic issues and personality as necessary.
In addition discussions about clinical and research governance, the appropriateness of treatments and the evidence-base for specific disorders, as well as opinions on complex and difficult cases is also provided.
