  • Behavioural Disorders: An initial screening assessment for Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Conduct Disorder or other primarily behavioural disorders in children and young people, followed by a diagnostic assessment if required.

  • Cognitive decline: The assessment of cognitive functioning to screen for, or diagnose, conditions such as Dementia, alcohol or substance use associated cognitive deterioration and other degenerative conditions

  • Personality: Screening for the presence of a personality disorder followed by a diagnostic assessment if this is required

  • Psychological wellbeing: an assessment of overall psychological health in children, young people or adults, that can include the impact of physical health conditions such a Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Acute or Chronic Pain

  • The initial screening assessments can usually be completed remotely either by phone or the internet. More comprehensive diagnostic assessment may require a face to face consultation. Reports can be provided for a school. education authority, a health provider or an employer.
