Assessment-only work 

Assessment-only work consists of a comprehensive package assessing the client's emotional, cognitive, behavioural and social support needs to provide holistic recommendations and costings. This package is offered at a fixed fee including travel costs and report writing.

Ongoing therapeutic interventions

Ongoing therapeutic input is usually weekly hourly sessions focusing on the clients’ goals for therapy. We would liaise with referrers and the professional network, as appropriate. We offer this service at an hourly rate, plus travel time, travel costs and report writing.

 

For solicitors and case managers, we have a good understanding of the medico-legal context and the impact this can have on the professional and family network. We work sensitively and cost-effectively, understanding the complexities and risk appropriately. We understand the importance of communication and endeavour to provide a personable, but expert service.
