Our Neuropsychologists offer a bespoke service for adults and young people who have experienced a traumatic or life changing event. We understand that a brain injury or PTSD can turn someone’s life upside down. Clients often tell us that they don’t know who they are anymore, although young people may not be able to express this verbally. Instead, their new and confusing reality is most often observed in changes to behaviour and school or college performance. Beginning to accept changes to identity and finding a new direction always brings internal conflict and practical struggle, and it takes time.
Our work with other professionals is collaborative, as we help our clients and their families come to terms with what has happened and reclaim a sense of having a valuable life. This means working through loss and grief to find meaning and purpose, and adjusting to the consequences of their physical and psychological injuries.
As Neuropsychologists we also undertake cognitive assessments to inform the rehabilitation and treatment process, identifying both strengths and weaknesses in cognitive ability and thinking skills. We can then help our client and their families look at ways of modifying how they do things in order to help the survivor of brain injury achieve as much independence as possible.
When independence is not achievable, we look at the survivor’s environment and relationships, and work alongside their families – and sometimes their friends – to identify ways in which they can best support them now and into the future.Make a Referral
