Information for Referrers
PLE Health psychological treatment services are delivered in an efficient and effective manner with clear objectives and outcomes as well as visual analogue measures of presenting symptoms and goals that are being targeted.
Our clinicians can work with recommendations made by a GP, Mental Health professional, Case Manager, Occupational Health Nurse or Counsellor or alternatively provide their own assessment and make treatment recommendations where appropriate. As we have national coverage, treatment is delivered at venues as close to the client’s home or work as possible.
Our clinicians provide rigorous assessments and evidence-based treatments that are appropriate to the client’s presentation. After careful assessment and formulation, the treatment approach will be discussed with the client and goals agreed for their treatment. Standardized measures may also be used to give a baseline measure, which will guide treatment and ensure that successful outcomes can be measured.
