Base Psychology provides Clinical Psychology assessment
and treatment for individual's 17 years and over whose
lives have been changed following brain injury. An initial
assessment will review any areas of difficulty you may
be experiencing and identify specific goals for therapy.
is about developing a greater understanding of issues
or challenges that might be effecting you and developing
your own solutions for these difficulties. It is not
like going to see a mechanic or accountant where you
can hand over a problem and have them fix it. With personal
or relationship issues you will ultimately do the work.
you will be only be seen for one hour per week so you
may be given suggestions to assist a problem that you
will have to try out. You may be asked to complete practical
tasks as experiments to approach a problem differently.
Alternatively you may be asked a series of questions
to get you thinking about the situation and how you
traditionally dealt with it and how you may be able
to deal with it in the future.
Base Psychology completes Neuropyschological Assessments
for individuals 17 and over who have sustained a brain
injury. A Neuropyschological Assessment is a comprehensive
assesment of cognitive (thinking) and behavioral functions
using a set of standardised tests and interview questioning.
assessment is typically recommended for situations in
which an individual may have sustained an injury to
the brain and further information is required about
cognitive or behaviour change. The assessments are often
conducted following traumatic brain injury, stroke,
medical illnesses, neurological disorders, prolonged
and excessive substance use or chemical exposure.
Private supervision is available to clinicians working
in the brain injury field. Frequency of input is provided
as is necessary for each clinician.
Base Psychology has provided seminars to various organisations
and disiplines on a range of topics in the Clinical
Psychology and Neuropsychology fields. Previous workshops
have included Behaviour Management Approaches, Risk
Management, and Working with Neuropsychologists and
