Why refer to PsychWorks Associates

Our Approach

Whether it’s Case Management or Psychological support you are after, our clinicians focus on a collaborative, creative and integrative approach to emotional rehabilitation as well as supporting any physical rehabilitation (compared to standard outpatient psychological input). This focus enables us to remove barriers to progress and recovery and encourage individuals and their families to live as close to the life they would have had had it not been for the injury.

Our Team

Our team of specialists has well over 100 years of cumulative experience supporting individuals and families in psychological distress while providing input to the professional system around the client.

All our Case Management clinicians have various higher education qualifications in psychology and many are HCPC-registered practitioner psychologists. All our Psychologists are HCPC or BABCP registered, the majority of which hold a doctorate qualification in psychology.

We encourage our clinicians to be the best humans they can be by encouraging self-care practices and interests that extend beyond the work domain. This is then likely to ensure that the clinician you get from PsychWorks Associates is one that is in the best mindset to fire on all cylinders for you or your client and their family.

How We Work

We work with Personal Injury professionals usually in medium-to-high value cases. This is usually because there is a long term impact for the individual and family as a result of a life-changing injury. Such serious and catastrophic injuries require psychological adjustment especially where there is a risk of disengagement with the rehabilitation goals and emerging discord within the family and/or professionals around the client.

At PsychWorks Associates, we can help you meet the expectations of the 2015 Rehabilitation Code by acting as an assessor of rehabilitation needs and providing the specialist input required. We work collaboratively with you and the team around the client to streamline the therapy and care to achieve the best outcome for the client, from a rehabilitation perspective and also in terms of the settlement.

Testimonials

I have made a number of referrals to PsychWorks Associates, and each time I have been impressed by the quality of input and professionalism the Directors and Associates have provided.

 

There have been some tricky issues, for example around safeguarding, that we have navigated around together and I particularly valued their ability to be 'on-call' during these times. I choose to re-refer to them because they are cost-efficient, especially in comparison to their competitors.

 

I recommend PsychWorks Associates to any case manager, client or solicitor.

Why Choose PsychWorks Associates

With us, you are guaranteed to receive the following quality of service:

To be kept fully informed by proactive clinicians

  • our packages all insist on regular informal and formal communications, whether it is a quick phone call after a session to provide an update or more formal update reports. Our aim is to ensure that you never have to guess where the input is at any one time.

  • our clinicians are trained to be timely in the service they provide and proactive so there is never a chase for input from the referrer or client.

Creative, flexible and comprehensive support

  • individualised to case needs which includes the client’s needs, the family’s needs and the professional network’s needs.

  • unlike many clinicians in private practice who agree to take on injury work, we build into our package time and space to engage fully with the client’s widest goals which includes adapting to needs as they arises, travel to the client’s setting, regular communications with referrers, support workers and family members, as well as opportunities to write excellent formal reports and attend MDT meetings.

  • we want our clinicians to be able to focus on their clinical skills with their client so we offer all our clinicians access to admin support, monthly clinical supervision, CPD training, and our senior team is always available to respond to queries throughout the week.

We choose the very best clinicians

  • all of which have come through a selective recruitment process because we believe that not all clinicians can work in Personal Injury. Clinicians are the inducted to be both trauma- and litigation-informed regardless of the role they take on.

  • we also arrange training in-house and with external providers to ensure our clinicians are ahead of the curve when it comes to understanding cutting edge clinical thinking or medico-legal processes that contextualise the work. Without meaning, any work can becomes less valuable.

Interdisciplinary vs Multidisciplinary input

  • whether you are considering work from our case managers or treating psychologists, our work is underpinned by case conceptualisation models, formulation approaches that underpin the entire rehabilitation package provided. Our Case Managers use these models to draw together an interdisciplinary therapy and care team; our psychologists use these models to support the package to become more coordinated and connected. One of our MD’s favourite saying is “we want to become bigger than the sum of our parts”…and that is only possible if rehabilitation input is conceptualised.

  • we only utilise evidence-based interventions which we complement with patient measures pre- and post-treatment. We believe in being able to measure progress and successes, and to identify where challenges might still exist.
