A skilled, compassionate therapist can help you achieve a relaxed state through deep breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation, or other mindfulness activities.”

Learn More About You (or Your Child) Through Psychological Testing
In addition to the counseling services listed above, we can offer psychological testing, too! The way we act, think, and feel can all be determined by underlying psychological factors. Maybe you have difficulty concentrating and always thought that there might be a reason as to why. Or perhaps you are unhappy with your career choices and don’t know what environment best suits you and your needs.
Psychological testing can provide you with helpful information about your mental wellbeing. Here at Thriveworks Counseling in Lexington, we offer a variety of psychological tests and assessments, including:
- Personality Testing: Personality tests are used to understand what your strengths, weaknesses, needs, and motivations are. This test can provide insightful information in terms of home, school, and work interpersonal challenges.
- IQ Testing: This type of testing involved a variety of different standardized tests that will help determine your reasoning abilities as well as your short- and long-term memory.
- ADHD Testing: Parents, teachers, and the child will go through assessments and questionnaires to help the psychologist determine an accurate diagnosis of ADHD.
Psychological testing can prove to be beneficial for many reasons. If you would like to schedule a psych testing appointment for you or your child, just reach out to our office. We’ll get you a session when it best fits your schedule.
Should I Consider Speaking With a Licensed Psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling?
The connection between the body and the mind is incredibly strong. As a result, many mental health disorders call for a psychiatric evaluation of both the mental and physical aspects.
Psychiatrists are medical doctors with expertise in diagnosing and treating mental health issues. They can perform thorough medical evaluations, administer various types of therapy, and can even prescribe medication. Psychiatrists can also teach their clients coping skills and tips for overcoming harmful behaviors.
