I attended Reaside out patients in connection with psychological assessment. When I first got the appointment letter, I was agitated by the security. In fact, it is not scary, but I wish I had listened to my concerns and refused to go. I would advise anyone in a simlar situation to pay for private psychology treatment. The psychologist seemed remarkably insensitive, bordering on interrogation, as the same question was repeated several times, on a delicate subject for me. I try to be compliant and helpful, but the psychologist told my care coordinator I had been uncooperative. The psychologist invited me to think, and commit to a long term treatment. In fact, that was not my choice, but I did feel the right answer was expected. I really began to feel there were talons grasping me.
I would advise seeking private psychology, or emigrating, in preference to attending this centre.
