It’s a long road for your clients, but we can help

For case managers and solicitors looking to secure the right care packages and rehabilitation plans for their clients, having highly qualified support is crucial.

Following a brain injury, the impact on the client and their family can be truly devastating and catastrophic. With long term effects likely on mental and physical health, memory, emotions, executive functioning, personality and behaviour, survivors of major brain injury are likely to require highly tailored long term support.

For all involved, it’s a life-changing event. The client may struggle to come to terms with their new life and the adjustments that need to be made. For their loved ones, they may be grieving the loss of the person they once knew and must adjust to the challenges presented by the impact of the brain injury.

Neuropsychologists are specialists in supporting people following a brain injury. It’s a complex area, with effects often evolving and not revealing themselves for some time after the event. Our Neuropsychologists will have the training and qualifications to enable them to perform specialist, detailed assessments and work closely with the family and multi-disciplinary team to establish what the impact on your client has been and the support and resources they are going to need in the future.

This may include psychometric tests to identify specific difficulties, ongoing therapy sessions to manage mental health issues, strategies to assist the client and family members. Our detailed Neuropsychology reports feature outcomes of tests, clinical observations and practical recommendations to assist you in putting in place the right rehabilitation package for your client.

This is often an area of confusion. Understanding the difference between a Psychiatrist and a Psychologist can be crucial to securing the right professional for your case.

Psychologists are trained in human and emotional development. They use their extensive knowledge of human emotions, behaviour and mental health to assess the problems being experienced by their clients. Based on their expert assessment; conclusions, recommendations and treatment plans will be presented in a report as required. Psychologists use a range of assessment techniques including psychometric testing as well as varied therapeutic models in order to understand and improve the mental health and psychological well-being of clients.

Psychiatrists are medical doctors and as such are qualified to prescribe medication (such as anti-depressants) or in more extreme cases recommend hospitalisation, to help assess and manage the symptoms being experienced by the person concerned.

In some cases, it may not be immediately clear whether a Psychologist or a Psychiatrist is required. A complex case may even require both. Our extensive register of professionals includes both Psychologists and Psychiatrists, and our knowledgeable client team are on hand to give you the advice you need and supply the right type of professional. If you have any questions at all, just give us a call.

Our Psychological and Psychiatric provision includes neuropsychology, rehabilitation psychology, rehabilitation psychiatry and specialist educational rehabilitation psychology. If your case has some complex and niche elements, we’ll seek out the professional with the right skills to support your client.

At Psychology Direct we work with Solicitors, Case Managers and Insurance companies on challenging, complex cases. We understand the challenges of the client in the centre of your case and the need to find the Psychologist or Psychiatrist with the right areas of experience and knowledge, without delay.

Our extensive register means we’ll be able to find the right professional for your case, ideally within 24 hours, . You can be reassured your dedicated client manager will be on the case as soon as your enquiry comes in, using their in-depth knowledge of our register to secure you the right professional.
