Comprehensive Psychological Assessments

We provide Comprehensive Psychological Assessments for children, adolescents and adults.

What is a Comprehensive Psychological Assessment? A Psychological Assessment explores and evaluates social, emotional, personality and cognitive functioning.  It can be useful in identifying or diagnosing a psychological issue, developing a comprehensive understanding of the issue that is distressing an individual, identifying strategies or treatments that may lessen the distress and identify any possible barriers to treatment.

What to expect A Psychological Assessment often requires several hours, sometimes spread out over more than one day. The process may include a clinical interview, observations, pencil and paper tests, discussion with other health professionals involved in your care (with consent) and discussion with family members (with consent).  Once the assessment is complete, a feedback interview will be held during which time the psychologist will outline the assessment findings and the client will have the opportunity to ask any questions about the findings and/or recommendations.  A report will then be provided.

Fees Psychological Assessments fees are billed based on the number of hours required to complete the assessment.

All fees are consistent with the guidelines set out by the Ontario Psychological Association.  OHIP does not cover psychological services, but many extended health policies do.  Please check with your insurance company to determine coverage.

How a Comprehensive Psychological Assessment can help Psychological Assessments can be beneficial for individuals wishing to better understand the issues that are distressing them, to identify ways to minimize the distress caused by these issues and to understand how these issues are affecting other areas of functioning.
