I am registered as a Provider with ACC (for assessment and treatment related to sensitive claims and psychological services).
For a sensitive claim – you do not need to lodge the sensitive claim prior to our session as I can do this on your behalf. Please note that I am not currently taking new clients.
Supported Assessments (for a sensitive claim):
A supported assessment determines if the sexual abuse/assault that you experienced has affected your mental health, with a written report provided to ACC.
The process consists of an interview/s (approximately 3 hours), and covers:
- Your childhood and events throughout your life;
- The sexual abuse/assault that you experienced and how it has affected you. In some cases, this information may be provided by your counsellor beforehand;
- The current situation – including your mood, relationships with other people, any substance use, and your employment; and
- The completion of questionnaires.
The interview process may result in some emotional discomfort. Breaks can be taken as required. You are welcome to bring a support person. If you attend alone, it can be useful to meet with a support person afterwards.
In a follow up session, you can review the report, discuss the treatment recommendations, and ask any questions.
