Psychological testing is a valuable resource to help you understand yourself better. There is nothing to fear - it's an opportunity for psychologists to determine the best way to help you.
All psychological tests should be administered, scored, and interpreted by a qualified psychologist.
Before the start of any psychological assessment or testing, a formal clinical interview is often conducted to provide a comprehensive picture of the person being tested. An assessment can last from one to three hours, and includes questions about the individual’s personal and childhood history, recent life experiences, work and school history, and family background.
Some psychological tests are used to assess mental health conditions such as ADHD, memory problems and general cognition. Others assess levels of achievement, IQ and personality.
Our specialised assessment packages can give invaluable information about your child’s development, learning and behaviour.
All of our assessments are conducted by fully qualified psychologists who have extensive experience in psychological assessment for children, adolescents and young adults.
Every assessment comes with a report that is highly specialised and clearly explains the results and provides individualised recommendations. We make sure you are informed every step of the way and take the time to go through results with you fully.
Choose from our comprehensive assessment packages, or talk to us about your specific needs and circumstances so we can tailor the right assessment for your child.
Our therapy groups offer individuals the opportunity to target specific issues while working in a structured environment. The group environment can help you feel supported by others who understand their experiences.
Group therapy provides the benefit of gaining insight and feedback from others who have shared your experiences. It allows individuals to access different perspectives, and promotes growth and change. It encourages group interaction and does not target individuals.

ADHD Assessment Package
Not everyone who is overly hyperactive, inattentive, or impulsive has an attention deficit disorder. Since most people sometimes blurt out things they didn't mean to say, bounce from one task to another, or become disorganized and forgetful.
To assess whether a person has ADHD, we consider several critical questions: Are they a continuous problem and not just a response to a temporary situation? Do the behaviours occur in several settings or only in one specific place like the playground or the office?
The person's pattern of behavior is compared against a set of criteria and characteristics of the disorder. These criteria appear in a manual called the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders version 5).Other potential causes that need to be screened out include; learning difficulties, oppositional issues, mood problems and medical conditions.
The comprehensive ADHD is a process conducted over 2-3 sessions with a qualified psychologist. The psychologist will ask you questions and administer questionnaires about your background, educational history and aptitudes and noted changes in your cognitive ability (ie memory, focus, concentration, distractibility) to determine if you may have ADHD or other related problem. The ADHD screening and other assessments measures symptoms ADHD and are completed by yourself as well as other close family members who are able to assess your cognitive and behavioural history. Medical screening through your GP or medical clinic may also be required to provide further assessment data.
