What is involved?

Your referral or request for treatment is initially reviewed by our clinical team. One of the clinical psychology trainees will contact you to ask a few simple questions to better understand your treatment needs.

After the initial assessment a plan for therapy is drafted with you, outlining goals for treatment and the treatment program. In general, treatment involves one-hour weekly sessions over six to 10 weeks. The length of treatment can vary according to the nature of your problem and the type of therapy prescribed.

Your clinical psychology trainee will review your progress periodically and make adjustments where necessary. Your clinical care is supervised by a team of experienced clinical psychologists.

Individual sessions are recorded to ensure you receive the best intervention through close supervision with your clinical psychology trainee. Recordings are confidential and deleted after your treatment is completed.
