We work with University Student Services and provide assessments to enable their students access to appropriate support.

We understand auditory processing and visual stress.

We offer counselling and training relating to mental health, stress and anxiety.

Assessment

Students
Students

Assessment is conducted in a relaxed and friendly way that is comfortable for you. An assessment typically involves:

  • Completing a background questionnaire
  • Meeting with a Chartered Educational Psychologist
  • Participating with a number of cognitive (problem solving) tests, together with further literacy related (reading and spelling) tests, lasting up to 2 hours.

A report is provided in under 10 days.

Students with dyslexia, dyspraxia and other needs are shown a strength and weakness profile, accompanied by recommendations.

A report often enables students to access a Needs Assessment for Disability Student Allowance (DSA), resulting in resources to assist with their dyslexic or particular learning needs.

We advise staff on cognitive behavioural and/or solution focused approaches for students experiencing difficulties with anxiety, exam nerves, etc.

We can provide telephone advice for staff and students.
