FAQS

Click on the questions below to see Megans answers, or please visit our FAQ page for more questions and information.

What can I expect at my first session?

The first session is used to get to know each other, find out about your presenting problems or concerns, and to gather relevant background information. From this we will be able to discuss options for a plan going forward, to best meet you and/or child’s needs.

How many sessions are usually requirED?

This will depend on the circumstances, but many clients report benefits from 3 to 6 sessions. However, there are always exceptions to this where some people are seen once or twice only, and others for much longer.

What is the age range of children you treat?

I work with children and young people up to their early twenties. Whilst treatment may be on an individual, family or parental basis, I generally work more with parents when their child is younger, and do more individual work with older children.  

What is the difference between a cognitive (educational) assessment and a neuropsychological assessment?

A neuropsychological assessment helps in understanding the relationship between brain and behaviour, and is useful for children with more complex presentations, or neurodevelopmental difficulties (for example,  epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, genetic or metabolic disorders) . An educational assessment is useful if you have concerns that your child has a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, or there are concerns with regards to their academic performance.
