Psychological assessments provide a snapshot into current functioning levels. They are used to diagnose learning disabilities; Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); social, emotional and behavioural concerns; executive dysfunction; or intellectual disabilities. Recommendations for amelioration of learning, social, emotional behavioural and executive functioning concerns are provided and are tailored to the individual situation with accommodations for learning and living suggested.
Counselling interventions are undertaken to promote change and growth for a more adaptive level of functioning at home, school, work or inter-personally. The reasons for engaging in counselling are as varied as the individuals who consider them. The goals of any counselling interventions are determined in concert with those individuals seeking change.
Some of the issues that Laurie can assist with are: executive functioning (planning, organization, time management, ADHD, anxiety, problem-solving, emotional regulation, parental support, stress management, social skills, behavioural issues, coping skills, goal setting and attainment, and life coaching.
