We recognise that people may occasionally feel nervous about meeting a Clinical Psychologist for the first time. We work with clients from all walks of life who have many different types of problems and we will endeavour to put you at your ease quickly.

Initially, we would meet for an initial assessment consultation in which we would focus upon your current difficulties. This would be followed by a brief exploration of some of the following areas: history of the problem; family background; life experiences; medical history; work and relationship history.

At the end of the first consultation we would offer a psychological formulation or understanding of your difficulties. Broadly this psychological understanding will provide a description of the origin of your difficulty, how it is currently maintained and treatment options. We will then consider the goals/aims of psychological therapy with you and prioritise them in order.

Jon Boakes Associates provides a range of evidence based psychological treatments including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Schema Focused Therapy. We also draw upon a range of other psychological theories and research which we may incorporate into treatment where appropriate.
