Dr Thrasher offers a pre-assessment screening service whereby claimants are asked to complete a set of standardised self-report questionnaires designed to help identify symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress, driving phobia, anxiety and depression as well as other reactions to trauma. She will examine the results of these in order to form an opinion as to whether it is likely that the claimant has sustained an emotional injury, in which case a full psychological assessment can be arranged.
