Should you decide to attend Horizons for therapeutic intervention, you will be matched with a therapist that is most suited to your family needs. We will offer a weekly appointment time (or time slot), which is convenient for you. The assessment report will contain a recommended timeframe of weekly therapy sessions, which are dependent on individual needs.
After the recommended intervention period is completed you will be evaluated by your treating therapist and you will receive updated information regarding current abilities and future needs. At this point discharge may be discussed depending on attainment of therapeutic goals and client wishes.
Not necessarily, but it is possible. This will greatly depend on several factors including availability, the day you attend therapy, etc. Because of specific training, education, etc. we may also suggest a specific therapist. Unless is otherwise recommended, a specific therapist will carry out the entire intervention program. You should also keep in mind that all of our therapists participate in continuing education opportunities locally and abroad.
In order to ensure our services are tailored to suit clients’ individual needs, it is necessary that clients beginning therapy have had an initial assessment. However, we also understand that you may have already completed a therapy assessment elsewhere. We accept assessments that have been carried out in different clinics and by your local health services. As a general rule we ask that a client have received a therapy assessment in the last year. If your child has not had a recent assessment, we would be happy to schedule you in for an assessment with one of our therapists.
In order to ensure best outcomes we encourage attendance to every appointment. If however a cancellation cannot be avoided we do have to apply a cancellation charge of €50. If the appointment can be re-scheduled within the same week there is no charge. Please ensure you cancel by phone of email.
Check with your health insurer regarding your policy. Some policies enable you to claim back a percentage of the money spent on therapy sessions. Some of our clients have also availed of funds to complete our therapy programs or are able to claim their therapy expenses against their taxes.
