Current situation: Coronavirus information (COVID-19)
The psychology pratice is open. To prevent coronavirus, various measures have been put in place:
- In the discussion area, the seat distance between the psychologist and the clients is approximately 2.5 m. For certain activities carried out at the table with children and adolescents (e.g. when carrying out assessments), this distance is 1.5 m.
- A disinfectant hand spray is available to clients. They disinfect their hands before entering the consultation room.
- The objects and materials used when working with children/adolescents are disinfected after each use.
- The "free play" corner has been removed, to avoid the presence of toys used by many children.
- A disinfectant spray for surfaces is regularly applied in sensitive areas (WC, washbasin, door handles, chairs).
- We ask clients to come at the scheduled time, in order to prevent previous and next clients from crossing paths, or more than one family in the waiting area at the same time.

Assessment for teenagers

We perform tests, questionnaires and other tools that enable the young people to be assessed in different situations in order to recognize their strengths and weaknesses, also in comparison to other young people of their age. Sometimes the parents come with the desire for a general assessment, in other cases individual or several elements of it can be proposed in the course of the meetings. The various possibilities for determining the situation and options are described below.

Career guidance and professional orientation

It makes it possible to highlight the young person's preferences, abilities and potentials and is carried out by means of conversations, tests, questionnaires and role-playing. This allows a detailed statement to be made in various areas, including personality, interests, reasoning, concentration, resilience, social competence and creativity.

Intellectual or cognitive assessment

The tests for the detection of intellectual abilities allow analysis and assessment in different areas such as language, logic, memory, attention, visual and spatial orientation, working speed as well as in other dimensions. Some of these tests – but not all – allow you to calculate an Intelligence Quotient (IQ). This is, however, always to be analyzed and interpreted in the context of the overall situation of the adolescent, the tests performed, and the personality profile, for example in the case of an impulsive adolescent, in the case of blockages or when the results are not homogeneous in different areas. We may also perform tests are neuropsychologically oriented and help to discuss difficulties in learning or neurological specificities more precisely.

Personality or psycho-affective assessment

By means of questionnaires we can get an insight into the various areas of personality, interests and attitudes, reactions, etc. There are also less structured and more creative tools in which the young person can freely express himself; these also make it possible to highlight the personality as well as the affective (emotional) development.

Diagnostic Assessments

I also offer diagnostic procedures that can be used to determine most of the diagnosable development disorders. Likewise, I can give you guidance and advice with regard to a diagnosis that has been or would be given.
