At The London Neurocognitive Clinic, we will assess people with neurological conditions to gather a ‘snap-shot’ of information about how a person is doing at a single point in time. Sometimes we see people again at a later time point to repeat the assessment and measure whether there has been any change. Throughout our work (e.g., neurorehabilitation) with people we place emphasis on helping our clients to maintain a good quality of life.
Why would I need to see a clinical psychologist?
Adjusting to a neurological condition may come with challenges. Sometimes people benefit from seeing a neurorehabilitation professional such as a clinical psychologist as soon as they have been diagnosed with a neurological condition to work through feelings (including anger, grief and or sadness) in relation to this. Other people may find that it is later on that they need some extra emotional support or help with evidencing their practical needs (e.g., as part of a PIP assessment) and this is when a clinical psychologist specialising in neuropsychology may be a useful person to see.
What can I expect to work on?
Sometimes developing new difficulties can mean that a person stops doing the things they used to enjoy. This, in turn, can lead to complex feelings associated with this loss, including anger, boredom and sadness. A clinical psychologist may explore reasons why the person valued the activities that brought enjoyment, and help the person to think flexibly about alternate ways of meeting these needs. This may include involving other people in your life, who could provide additional support.
