We are adjusting the way that we work during the current situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), in line with government guidance and that of our professional bodies.
Our priority is to protect the health of our clients, colleagues as well as our families and the wider community.
The main change is that for the foreseeable future and until government restrictions are lifted, we will be offering video-based remote sessions rather than face-to-face psychological assessments.
The video link format will be via one of the following formats:
Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp.
The format of the psychological assessment has to be agreed by the instructing party before the assessment appointment can be arranged. It then has to be also acceptable to the client. However, to date client feedback on the use of video-based assessments has been overwhelmingly positive.
Nevertheless, some clients may prefer to have a face-to-face psychological assessment. Also, there may be some situations when a remote video based psychological assessment may not be appropriate. In these circumstances, a face-to-face psychological assessment can be arranged once the restrictions on social distancing are lifted by the government and in these circumstances the psychological assessment will be placed on hold until this is possible.
It is easy to contact us with any queries or questions about the above.
