Neuro-psychology and Neuro-Psychiatry

We have integrated clinical neuro-psychology, which allows for full neuro-psychological assessment, 1-1 interventions, family support work and team training. Alongside the Neuro-Psychologists we have fulltime Assistant Psychologists in the services throughout the week provide you with responsive support. Our consultant Neuro -Psychiatrist works alongside the psychology team to support wellbeing of individuals and for response clinical medication review.

Our psychology team also support the families of those who have suffered an injury, both through 1-1 family intervention work or through our regular family support days.

All programmes are devised with the individual and integrated into functional daily living. Our team of proactive Rehabilitation Support Workers work alongside the therapy team to help support individuals achieve their therapy goals.

Therapeutic Environment
The service is also run as a person-centred therapeutic community, to encompass peer support work through psychology-lead, cognitive and self-awareness support groups. We run regular mindfulness support groups. Music/ Art and Drama therapy is available for those who may benefit.

The service is non-nursing, instead it is therapy led. We have a clinical lead nurse to monitor health related conditions and good links with the district nursing and community NHS teams. We use recognised outcome measures and integrate goals into functional daily living in line with the individual's aspirations.

Our emphasis is on community skill development, and where possible we work towards moving individuals onto more independent living.
