Our process

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:

We will usually be contacted by the child or young person, parent or carer, or another professional (eg education or health).

What happens during a relationship intervention?

During a relationship intervention, the HSR Psychology professional will often teach the individual effective techniques for improving their trust, empathy, resilience, communication and happiness in relationships. The child or young person will also learn about how to handle common obstacles e.g. arguments in relationships. The individual may also learn how to recognise social cues in order to form healthy relationships. The HSR Psychology professional will give encouragement to the individual to see various situations from different perspectives and understand how to approach these situations. Relationship interventions can be provided for an individual or a group of two or more people. 

What happens after a relationship intervention?

After a relationship intervention the young adult or child will be able to implement a number of predetermined plans worked on during the intervention for building close relationships. Following a relationship intervention we may suggest a number of follow up sessions, if is believed these are required. Outcomes from a relationship intervention can either be provided through a written report if requested or a single feedback session. As part of the interventions we will support you through the entire process including the offer to receive support post-intervention.

Does a relationship intervention come with a report?

Reasons for requesting a relationship intervention vary. As such a written report may not be needed. In this case, feedback will be provided to you verbally along with a short summary.We do however recommend a report after intervention has concluded. A report encumpasses everything that took place during the intervention along with the impact of this. There is also a section detailing recommendations for the future. This report can have several different applications, such as: school use, personal use, to support an application for things such as funding, or evidence for a number of different reasons.If you would like to Read more about our reports then more information can be found on our website.
