It is not possible to provide an exhaustive list as people experience distress differently and may call it by different names. The initial assessment at Psicon will provide an understanding and treatment options to help with the distress as it presents.
Neurodevelopmental Conditions (Autism, ADHD, Dylsexia..)
Psychologists at Psicon have particular expertise in working with young people who have a neurodevelopmental condition such as autism or ADHD. Whilst these conditions do not cause emotional distress themselves, living with them can be very challenging, and distress is experienced as a result. We are able to offer specialist psychological support services and therapy through our Neurodevelopmental Lifespan Services.
Psicon’s Children, Young People and Family Services offer full psychiatric assessment of children when the problems, such as psychosis/schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder or personality disorders, require a medical diagnosis and possible medical treatment. Assessment, diagnosis, prescription and medical follow-up are all possible. Where conditions also require psychological treatment, our psychology and psychiatry team work closely together to offer the most complete care package available. This service is invaluable for very complex conditions, as liaison between professionals and family can occur often and all ‘in-house’.
