Psychological assessment and treatment

We provide psychological assessment for both mental health and physical health issues. We tailor our approach flexibly to the individual's presenting difficulties, lifestyle and their treatment preference. We work with both mental health difficulties (such as depression, trauma, anxiety) and physical health issues (reactions to physical health conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, physical disability, disfigurement, skin conditions, alopecia, etc). We respect the autonomy and privacy of our clients and provide information about the limits of confidentiality whilst enabling them to set their own preferences for any sharing of information with other health professionals. We accept self referrals in addition to referrals from other clinicians.

If required, a no-obligation telephone discussion can be arranged to discuss your options free of charge.

Lifestyle services

We can offer assessment and intervention for many of the lifestyle issues that pose problems in the busy lives of our clients. We work with issues such as weight management, stress management, those wanting to engage in healthier behaviours, and those wanting to generally increase their psychological resilience by training in psychological skills.

Supervision and training

We can offer both clinical supervision and training services. To establish what your needs are and to discuss if we can meet these, please contact us for a free of charge, no obligation discussion.

Corporate

The value of clinical psychology services is no longer seen as confined to the treatment of pathology or clinical conditions. Recent developments have seen psychology embraced into corporate settings with extensive beneficial outcomes. Many major global corporations and public bodies (Google, Harvard Business School, Transport for London, GlaxoSmithKline, KPMG) have been publicised as incorporating psychological well-being interventions such as Mindfulness into the workplace and leadership programmes.

Research shows that employers who invest in mental health initiatives (such as screening and facilitating health seeking behaviour can expect a five-fold return on that investment (Hilton, 2005; cited in Flaxman et al 2013). Costs to companies are not just from sickness absences. In fact, the cost of sickness absence to UK business (£8.4 billion per year) is far less than the costs of reduced productivity due to mental ill health in the workplace (£15.1 billion per year) (Source, Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health, 2007).

Taylor Awenat Ltd can provide suitably qualified clinicians who have a proven track record working with companies using evidence based, easily accessible psychological interventions.

Upon being contacted, we can arrange a free of charge, no obligation meeting to explore what it is you are hoping to achieve, and on the basis of this design a package to meet your specific needs. This can be anything from improving workforce well-being, to assisting senior management with goal attainment and interpersonal / team based functioning. We will offer a clear pricing outline with no hidden costs.

Expert Witness Reports

We can provide timely, well written reports for the courts on family proceedings (adult assessments), criminal and civil cases. Please contact us to discuss the nature of your instruction and time requirements.
