Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Psychoeducational Assessment?
A psychoeducational assessment is a thorough, individualized assessment designed to determine an individual’s learning profile.
How can a Psychoeducational Assessment help me or my child?
A psychoeducational assessment can yield recommendations specific to an individual’s learning profile in order to help that person function at home, school and at work.
What can I expect in the first session when I see a Psychologist?
The first session typically includes a discussion of the presenting concerns, a developmental and health history, and a discussion of informed consent regarding assessment or treatment.
How do I know if I need to see a Psychologist?
when deciding if you or someone you care about could benefit from treatment, you need to ask, is the issue distressing? is it interfering with your life in any way? If the answer is yes, then you need to speak to a psychologist. If you are unsure, you can give us a call and we will walk you through in a confidential manner.
You can discuss your feelings with your doctor, who will be able to advise you on whether or not seeing a psychologist is appropriate for you. Alternatively, you may always call us and we will be pleased to discuss your problems in confidence.
We all face difficulties at some point in our life. These difficulties could include work-related stress, difficulties with a love relationship, or issues with a family member. Alternatively, emotional symptoms such as depression or anxiety, behavioural issues such as hoarding or drinking too much alcohol, and cognitive symptoms such as repeating distressing thoughts or uncontrollable concern may all be present.
How long will i need to see a Psychologist for?
This varies. Each person’s number of sessions with their psychologist will be different. Some situations require only brief interventions, while others are more complicated and require more time. You and your psychologist will establish a plan together during the first few sessions to give you a clearer understanding of what to expect.
People can come to therapy for a single session or a few sessions to talk about a specific issue in their lives or to get through a specific concern.
Although issues and struggles are often what lead most people to see a psychologist for the first time, therapy may also be a place for self-development and growth.
Is the information discussed in Psychotherapy confidential?
All information shared with a psychologist during your session is confidential. We understand how important confidentiality and privacy are. All information disclosed including case notes, records, and psychological test results is treated with care and maintained securely. Clients will be informed of legal restrictions on confidentiality during the first session.
Without the client’s permission, no information will be shared. In instances where there is a necessity to provide information, such as if you or others are in danger or if a court order is issued. If these scenarios arise, your psychologist will talk to you about them.
Do I need a referral to see a Psychologist?
No, you do not require a referral or recommendation. You do not need a reference from your doctor or a psychiatrist to see a psychologist. You can reach out to a psychologist by yourself when you feel the need to.
Am I the only one feeling this way?
No, you are not alone. At every moment, one out of every four persons will encounter mental health issues. It is common and talking to someone who can support you and provide evidence-based counselling services can really help. Reach out to our Psychologists at Waystone to talk about what’s on your mind.
