Psychological Assessment

Psychological assessment/psychological testing is a process to measure and observe a person’s behavior to arrive at a diagnosis and guide treatment. Psychological assessment uses a combination of techniques to arrive at hypotheses about a person and their cognitive capabilities, behavioural functioning and personality. All assessments generally constitute intake interviews, clinical observation, psychometric instruments, and collateral information-gathering to identify presenting problem(s) and relevant background information. Comprehensive and holistic psychological assessments often span across few sessions. A feedback session will then be arranged to review the results with the clients. Depending on individuals’ need, the clients can request for psychological reports whereby additional charges may be incurred.

Children who are experiencing difficulty in school, a person who may have problems at work or school or in personal relationships may be administered psychological assessment to understand the nature of the problem and to figure out the best way to address it.
