All Orb8 individual interventions will require an assessment by us in advance. Orb8 expertise is in respect of traumatised, hard to reach and marginalised children, young people and young adults ages 0-25 years. We can offer a range assessments for therapeutic treatment or planning purposes and as a basis for our further involvement.

  • Orb8 Therapeutic Mental Health Assessment - our unique research based model
  • Psychology and Educational Psychology- including special educational needs
  • Speech and Language Assessments
  • Multi-disciplinary assessments
  • Health Assessments
  • Psycho-Social including specific presentations and difficulties
  • Psychotherapeutic – for specific therapeutic interventions

Our way of working

All our assessments are delivered by highly experienced and qualified professionals with a particular interest and additional training in areas such as trauma, attachment and neurodevelopment. We are aware the CYPYA we will be working with may be mistrustful or fed up with professional adults and we will do our upmost to engage them.

Receiving a service

Because we focus on working with traumatised, hard to reach and marginalised CYPYA we are only able to take referrals from professional adults. We don’t have a waiting list or excluding criteria and can usually see CYPYA promptly. Some specialist assessments may have a longer wait as they depend on the availability of a specific clinician. The basis for us accepting a referral is that we think we might be able to be helpful as we have expertise and knowledge in respect of the presenting difficulties. In order to accept a referral we will need consent from someone with parental responsibility or if over 16 years the service users themselves.

All assessment will include contact and information gathering with the professional network and carers.

Orb8 is a business and we have no public or other funding we therefore have to charge for our services. We have standard hourly charges based on profession and offer packages of input at pre-agreed competitive rates.

Most of our Clinicians are based in the South East, South Coast, London, Home Counties and East Anglia. It may be possible to provide assessment only input out of this area, please ring us to discuss.
