At HSR Psychology we ensure that we meet the needs of children and young people. To achieve this we ensure that any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work, is only carried out following an initial discussion.
An initial discussion allows us to understand the background and your expectations of our involvement. Having an initial discussion ensures any services we provide appropriately identify or address needs.
Our process for any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work is as follows:

An initial assessment for a traumatic brain injury will likely take place within the hospital following the accident which caused the injury. A clinical psychologist or neuropsychologist will carry various assessments and/or brain scans to identify the affected areas of the brain.
At HSR Psychology, we carry out assessments to identify specific areas of need an individual may have. We identify needs in relation to:
An assessment can include any of the following:
Our psychologists would likely carry out a full cognitive assessment that provides comprehensive information to create a profile of a child or young person’s strengths and needs. Cognitive assessments may have been carried out within the hospital, and cannot be repeated within a specific time frame. If this is the case then we would use different assessments, or a different cognitive assessment.
A clinical interview would involve one of our team members speaking with the child, young person and the adults around them to understand their life as a whole. Clinical interviews provide necessary information to plan and implement a holistic intervention.
Observations allow our team to see the child or young person within their day to day life and assess social interactions and behaviour which may not be seen during a psychometric assessment.
Our psychologists or psychotherapists will determine the specific assessments to be used following an initial discussion.
After we have assessed for needs relating to a traumatic brain injury, you will receive a report which will highlight areas of need. Following the report, we will have an opportunity for discussion regarding the outcome of the assessment, as well as whether further interventions are required.
The HSR Psychology Team provide a range of holistic and bespoke interventions which target identified areas of need related to a traumatic brain injury, including:
If you have a specific intervention in mind that is not listed, then please contact us and find out how we can help.

Needs relating to a traumatic brain injury can be supported through targeted interventions. Our assessments highlight strengths and areas of need, meaning that we can target our input to use an individual’s strengths to support their needs.

Thank you Julie once again for the excellent report, it captured the child’s needs entirely - SENDIASS, parents and me commented on how well written it was. Many thanks for your continued assistance.

I think the work you have been doing has been great to help break the stigma of mental health and as a fellow sufferer I know how important that is.
