- Brain trauma or injury
- Neuroinfective illness
- Multiple Sclerosis
What Issues Do Neuropsychology Therapies Treat?
Much like with other parts of your body, after illness or trauma, elements of the brain may need rehabilitation and support to ‘fix’ any resulting issues. Neuropsychology takes an in depth look into brain processes and provides a means by which we can treat negative aspects of the following that occur as a result of such trauma or illness.
- Cognitive skills such as judgment
Our therapists also understand the impact of such changes on your relatives and can provide advice as appropriate. Your brain makes you who you are, and we think you’re important.
In some cases, certain prescription medications can aid the therapeutic process and work effectively in combination with therapy. Our team includes an experienced neuropsychiatrist who is in a position to decide if such medication is appropriate and beneficial and can provide prescriptions if necessary.
In some cases reports are required, these reports may be for personal use of court cases. If you require a report for a court case we have experts trained in the gold standard procedure for producing reports for UK courts, they also have experience giving evidence in court as expert witnesses to help provide crucial expert information relation to your case which can influence the outcome. On numerous occasion Judges and solictors have commented on how helpful our reports have been in relation to making decisions on cases.
