Understanding a child or young person’s strengths, and using those strengths maximises children and young people’s potential.

What happens prior to a strength based assessment?

A strength based assessment can be carried out following an initial discussion, please see our process below.

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:

Step 1: Contact us

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

You can contact us or complete a referral



Step 2: Arrange an initial discussion

An initial discussion allows us to understand the background and your expectations of our involvement. Arrange an initial discussion



Step 3: Review our recommendations

Following an initial discussion we will send you an email that includes:

  • Next steps recommendations - to provide a bespoke package of support. For example:
    • Assessments
    • Reports
    • Information gathering
    • Meeting
    • Interventions
    • Consultancy
    • Reviews
  • Costing - we will provide costings for any services recommended.


Step 4: Let's get started

On receipt of the next steps recommendations and costing you can decide how to proceed. Once you have decided contact us to arrange the chosen services.



What happens during a strength based assessment?

A strength based assessment varies according to the areas being assessed. An assessment may include observations, conversations, questionnaires, puzzles or activities. The specifics of the assessment taking place will be discussed during the initial discussion.

Which assessments do we use for a strength based assessment?

All of our assessments can be used for a strength based assessment as we would be able to identify a child or young person’s areas of strength.

Strength based assessments can also be quite informal and take place through discussions with the individual. Following an initial discussion we would be able to provide more detailed information using the information we know about the individual.

What happens after a strength based assessment?

After a strengths based assessment we will have a comprehensive idea of a child or young person’s strengths, which means we can make personalised recommendations. Using strengths to support challenges will help children and young people to be happy, safe and ready for life’s challenges.

Does a strength based assessment come with a report?

A strength based assessment comes with a choice of reports, depending on needs and requirements. As a strength based assessment may include a variety of assessments, a report can be used as a summary in addition to recommendations for the future. Read more about the report options we offer.

A strength based assessment does not come with an average price as it could include a single assessment or multiple. A price can be provided following an initial discussion. Knowing an individual’s strengths provides a starting point for interventions and support strategies for a broad range of needs they may have.
