Ask a Psychologist

Ask a Psychologist

Over the many years of working as Psychologists, we have come to recognise that most people want to have some sort of initial chat to consider whether there is something we can help them with and whether they feel we are the people to provide this. In our Ask a Psychologist – Quick Consults, you can ask a quick question or find out if there is something we can help you with. These are only 20 minute sessions so we won’t be able to get into lots of detail, but it’s an initial chat to find out if a Psychologist may be who you are looking for. At Brain Brolly, we are Clinical Psychologists so we are focused on the people in your workplace. 

How does it work?

You will book a 20 minute slot at a particular date and time for an online video call with one of our Psychologists. As part of the booking process, you will be asked to give a brief outline of your query. This is to allow us to provide value for money whereby we can focus immediately on your query rather than spending some of the 20 minutes discussing the nature of your query. It also allows us to consider which of our Psychologists would be most relevant for you to talk to. 

Sessions can be changed or cancelled up to 24 hours prior to the chosen time slot. If you are unavailable at the agreed time slot, no refund will be given. 

What we can and cannot provide in these sessions

These sessions are deliberately short essentially to discuss whether there is something we can help you with and for you to decide whether we are the people to provide this.

  • We are happy to discuss our programmes and ongoing consultation sessions.
  • We are happy to discuss bespoke training for your team or workplace.
  • We can provide brief advice on a current issue or difficulty but may require a longer session to discuss this properly.
  • We cannot provide therapy in these short sessions but can discuss whether therapy may be useful and how to access this.
  • We are not a crisis service and cannot provide immediate support where there are issues of self harm and suicidal ideation. 

Please note: A number of Psychology students have contacted us through our Ask a Psychologist – Quick Consults to discuss careers. We would refer you to the advice on the website of the British Psychological Society in the first instance
