MIND. LIFE. FAMILY.
MindNLife is a private psychology practice for the whole family.
The purpose of an assessment is usually to gather information in order to provide informed advice or recommendations concerning some aspect of the child’s educational or psychosocial functioning.
Assessments are a useful tool in helping to understand a child with behavioural or emotional problems, by identifying cognitive or learning difficulties.
PARENTS SHOULD CONSIDER ASSESSMENT WHEN A CHILD:
- Displays significant behavioural problems for the first time.
- Has behaviouralproblems that have not responded well to intervention.
- Is having difficulty with learning, such as problems with reading, spelling or mathematics and has not responded to support.
- Appears anxious or withdrawn in relation to school or is avoiding school.
- Shows concentration problems, and lacks organisation skills.
- Shows a loss of skills, regression in abilities, or sudden change in their normal behaviour
- Is not as independent as expected in daily living skills; they may be disorganised or forget instructions
(particularly in older children and teenagers)
This really depends on the service or treatment. Our therapy sessions usually last for 50 minutes, but may be left open-ended depending on the situation. Group sessions may also differ. We aim to meet face-to-face or online at least once a week for as many weeks as necessary – but again, this may vary. Your therapist will agree on timings that best suit you before you begin any treatment program. Of course, for those in need of more urgent attention, our therapists will make themselves available as soon as humanly possible. Contact us now to schedule a session.
Yes we do – but not all insurers cover every type of mental health care. Please check with your insurance provider if our care falls within your health insurance plan.
Absolutely. We abide by the strictest codes of ethics. Your trust and privacy is at the very core of any therapy. Without it our sessions would be ineffective. That being said, there are some exceptions to this golden rule, particularly if it is a question of safety and there is a serious risk of harming yourself or someone else.
This will depend on your therapist, the service and the length of your session. For rates or a quotation please contact us directly.
We will do our best to match you with the therapist who is trained and the right fit for you and your individual needs. Ultimately the right therapist is whoever you feel most comfortable talking to.
Usually when we’ve reached the goals we set out to achieve, your therapist will assess whether it is a good time for your sessions to come to an end. A big part of what your therapist will do during sessions is to try to arm you with the right tools and methods to maintain your mental health on your own. The aim is to ensure you gain better clarity and direction. You should leave feeling confident enough to make your own decisions and trust your own choices.
Our practice is located at Suite 1202, Chinachem Hollywood Centre,1 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong.
If you or someone you know feels unsafe, overwhelmed and like they could be in a crisis, call nearest hospital or 999 for immediate support.
