I would like to thank Jo Bartholomew for assessing my child. Jo Bartholomew carried out a thorough assessment with my child, myself and in school. She was friendly and professional, and managed to gather information that I could not. Jo Bartholomew understood my child perfectly. This has been a huge help and a massive step forward for me in helping my child to progress. Without this assessment, I would still be struggling to understand my child’s difficulties and how to best help him.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Jo Davies/ Essential Psychology. Dr Jo Davies was extremely professional, friendly and very kind answering all my questions regarding my son’s assessment and explaining everything beforehand in detail.She was very careful in her observations and we had an in depth report and meeting about what she had observed and results from the assessment, with recommendations for which areas we should look at further with the school. Dr Davies was happy to work with both myself and my son’s Class Teacher and we were able to work together to get the best outcome.

This was the first time I have used Essential Psychology and found them very understanding of my client’s needs. My client has behavioural problems, which was not a problem and they understood it may be very difficult to get her to attend the assessment and engage. Dr. Jo Davies was very flexible and took this into consideration when arranging the assessment visit and if she had to rearrange this would be fine. Dr. Davies’ approach with my client was excellent and she managed to get her to engage in a full assessment which surprised us all due to my client’s reluctance to interact with people she doesn’t know.
I would certainly use Essential Psychology again and not only for assessment but for 1-1 work, if required.

“Thank you so much Dr Davies for playing such a key part in our son’s journey. Your input will finally help him secure the support and understanding he so deserves, and we are beyond grateful.”
“After 6½ years, 65 different hospital and clinic appointments, and much worry, our son has received the Autism diagnosis we felt he so much needed. It will get our son that bit closer to receiving the help and support he both deserves and needs.
Thank you, thank you (Jo Bartholomew) so much for all of your help and kindness, and for believing so much in our son. Your help will help to secure his future.”
The esteemed Psychologist talked about the findings of the Stanford Prison Experiment (The Lucifer Effect) and about some of his more recent work, the ‘Heroic Imagination Project’.
It was an absolute honour to both listen to him and to meet him!
We are able to offer assessments prior to university or college entrance.
