All Senses Health Care services are available by appointment for private consultation on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Telephone or video consultations may be arranged. Wheelchair access is available. Consultations can be provided to individuals, couples or families.
Please allow at least 90 minutes for your initial assessment consultation and between 60 and 75 minutes for each subsequent consultation.
Initial Consultation: Relax in a non-clinical setting.
At your initial consultation Anthony will begin a thorough and confidential clinical-health psychology assessment of your symptoms of sensory dysfunction or impairment. Discussion will cover many aspects of your present and past life situation including your physical and mental health, any major life event stressors, social and recreational activities, work, relationships and family life. Please bring the names of any current medications you are taking and the names and addresses of any recent health care providers you have seen. You will be required to complete some questionnaires as part of your assessment. From the initial assessment findings Anthony will provide preliminary information about your condition, together with recommendations for the most effective treatment. If needed between-consultation strategies will be introduced.
Subsequent Consultations: Tailoring the most suitable treatment.
The number of subsequent consultations depends on the nature and complexity of your condition and recommended treatment. As Anthony’s clients typically have complex conditions and a long history, up to 3 consultations are often required to complete a comprehensive clinical-health psychology assessment and formulate the most suitable individualised treatment plan. Usually within 3 consultations Anthony can gauge your suitability for his treatments and advise you of the number of consultations likely to be needed.
In customising your treatment plan, Anthony will draw upon many evidence-based therapies including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness-based Therapies and Relaxation Therapy. Hypnotherapy or Trauma-focused Therapy may be offered when appropriate. His treatments address the physical, behavioural, emotional, and cognitive aspects of sensory dysfunction and disorders. Overall Anthony’s therapeutic approach encompasses body and mind together, within a bio-psychosocial model for restoring health or managing disease.
Your feedback at each consultation will be very important in guiding Anthony towards tailoring the most suitable treatment for you. If Anthony finds your suitability for his recommended treatment to be low, he will advise you of whatever alternative approaches may be available. Sometimes Anthony will recommend adjunctive treatments such as sound therapy or medication; however he does not prescribe medication. With your authority Anthony will communicate with your other health care providers.
