Following a strength-based approach, we will give some recommendations for effectively supporting the individual. Our recommendations are aimed at helping the individual apply their strengths in daily life.
Prior to a strength-based approach, an initial discussion will take place. Please see our process below.
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:

During a strength-based approach, a HSR Psychology professional will often work with the child or young person to identify the individual’s strengths in a range of areas. The individual will then be asked to think about what they want to improve e.g. academically, socially or emotionally. The individual will then be encouraged to think about how they can apply their strengths in order to best achieve their goals. The child or young person may be taught techniques for maximising their potential by applying their strengths in daily life. Then the individual will have the opportunity to implement these strength-based strategies and then reflect on the outcome. A strength-based approach can be used alongside other interventions.
After a strength-based approach, the individual will then be able to use their strengths to achieve their goals. We may also suggest carrying out a follow-up session. We can provide the outcome of a strength-based approach through either a feedback session or, if needed, a written report. You will be supported through the whole intervention process, hence why we always offer the option to provide follow-up support.
After an intervention, a report is always recommended. Such report includes the details of what happened during the strength-based approach, our impact, and recommendations we have for the future. We also offer a comprehensive report that highlights how the individual’s strengths can be used to maximise their potential. A report from a strength-based approach can be used for numerous reasons, including: personal use, school use, medical use, funding and support, support with an application, or evidence of input. A strength-based approach can be used for various reasons. If you do not need a written report, we can provide feedback verbally, along with a brief summary. Read more about our reports.
Arrange an initial discussion to find out how we can benefit your education setting. The initial discussion lasts 2 hours and is a starting point to identify needs. The cost is £180.
