A psychological assessment can be part of your initial therapy sessions. Nevertheless, it can also be offered as an independent service.
Currently, we offer Psychodiagnostic Assessments that aim to clarify mental health diagnoses such as depression or anxiety disorders, that helps with treatment planning.
Please Note: We do not offer psychological assessments or reports for purposes related to psycho-educational evaluations, forensic cases, or child custody and access.
Psychological assessments are conducted by trained psychologists, psychiatrists, or other mental health professionals. Psychological assessments follow a systematic process that typically involves multiple stages:
- Referral: You can contact Therapy Villa directly to make a self-referral. Healthcare experts, such as doctors, psychiatrists, social workers, and psychologists, may also refer you to our service for the purpose of clarifying a mental health diagnosis.
- Initial Interview: The assessment process begins with gathering background information about the individual, including relevant medical history, personal background, and any specific concerns that prompted the assessment.
- Selection of Assessment Tools: Based on the purpose of the assessment, the psychologist selects appropriate assessment tools. These can range from standardized tests to behavioral observations and self-report inventories.
- Information Gathering: The selected assessments are administered, and information is collected meticulously. This may involve one-on-one interviews, questionnaire responses, personality tests, and behavioral observations, depending on the specific requirements of the assessment.
- Analysis and Interpretation: Psychologists meticulously analyze the collected information to derive meaningful insights into the individual’s psychological functioning. This step involves a comprehensive understanding of the assessment tools used and the application of established psychological principles.
- Reporting: A comprehensive or a brief report summarizing the findings is prepared, including a comprehensive analysis of the individual’s strengths, weaknesses, and potential areas of concern.
- Communication Feedback: Feedback sessions are conducted to discuss the results and provide guidance on the necessary steps for further evaluation or intervention, if required.
