assessment

5Bloom psychology offers assessment for all issues around fertility, pregnancy, loss, birth and early parenthood.

This involves meeting with an experienced clinical psychologist for an agreed time period (usually two 90 minute sessions, though this is adapted when required) in a safe, pleasant consulting room in central Glasgow, or sometimes at your home if this is more convenient.

This involves being asked some questions about your current circumstances, and your life more broadly, as we know that we are very much shaped by our experiences, particularly those in early life.

Assessment can provide clarity and understanding of how a difficulty has arisen, as well as indications for what might be helpful as a next step. Often assessment is all that is needed to reassure and empower. On other occasions, a limited number of further sessions can be helpful, and often it is agreed that the client and psychologist will meet over a longer period for a course of talking-based therapy.
