Do You Have Enough Time To Do Everything As Well As You’d Like?

Psychology Tools
1 July 2020

We didn’t think so.

As a mental health professional, there are so many different challenges and demands to balance within your working day. To name but a few, you want to give your clients the best possible therapeutic help, but still work efficiently and stay on model, all while keeping up to date with the latest practices, techniques and research, as well as furthering your professional development.

There’s never enough time to prepare as thoroughly as you’d like for your client or supervision sessions. Creating or finding the high quality, credible, sometimes multilingual resources that you want to use is time consuming, but not something you’re willing to compromise on. It can be hard to stay focused and attentive when you feel stretched too thin. We can all struggle to remain ‘present’ when we’re worrying about juggling multiple demands.

As professional psychologists, we understand these tensions. It’s one of the reasons we began Psychology Tools – to create evidence-based, genuinely useful tools and resources for professionals, so you have you everything you need to deliver great therapy more easily and effectively.

Feel better prepared for every client session

Using our evidence-based library of 300+ resources and tools, you can prepare much quicker for client sessions. Choose from a wide range of evidence-based materials, including worksheets, exercises, handouts, therapy audio, guides and workbooks. You can be confident that whatever challenges your clients are facing, you’ll always have a variety of great materials to support them.

Work smarter

Our tools are developed by highly qualified clinical psychologists, who understand which features are useful for the way you work.

  • Resources created in multiple formats to suit any learning style (fillable PDFs, editable PPT, blank pdfs) and our ‘one page per concept’ design means focused, easily digestible learning.
  • Clients can be supported through resources in their own language with our translation library of 2000+ resources in 50+ languages, allowing for deeper engagement with treatment.
  • Stay on model and minimize therapist drift with conceptualization tools and cognitive behavioral models.

Work sharper

Our tools aren’t just for using with your clients, they are also carefully designed to help you develop your practice. Create stronger theory-practice links with fully referenced materials, knowing that special attention has been paid to the theory underpinning each resource.
There’s a wide range of tools for assessment, formulation, intervention and evaluation, as well as materials for use in supervisions to help your supervisees and trainees learn, so we can help you at every step of the therapeutic process.

Save valuable time

Working faster shouldn’t mean cutting corners. Our features allow you to save time without compromising on quality or academic rigor. With all our resources at your finger-tips in one easy-to-search location, you can find something specific or search more broadly in a way that delivers results quickly. The library is intuitively organized by Problem, Therapy, Technique and Mechanism. You can also filter by Therapy Tool or Language, so you can choose how you search. Find standalone resources in seconds or construct whole treatment plans when you have a little more time. You can also email materials directly to clients from our website, saving even more precious minutes.

Keep learning

Resources that enable you to continue your professional development can only be a good thing. With clear instructions and worked case examples, you can confidently use new materials, expanding your practice toolkit. Full references for each resource mean you can read further into areas you’re less familiar with, increasing your knowledge. With new materials and articles added all the time, there’s always more to learn.

And breathe

There will always be a lot to juggle. But knowing you have resources and tools to help manage your demands effectively means you can feel more in control, and focus on doing what you need to do. With less to worry about, you can enjoy a little more time to think, to really listen and focus on your clients and your practice.

Psychology Tools is a key part of my preparation now. Each day, I review my client notes and look at what areas are to be addressed and then I print the resources ready for the sessions. As I discuss a topic, I give the client a specific sheet and go through this with them to identify how it relates to their situation. The resources complement my work and reinforce the concepts during treatment. I also feel it gives more credibility to what I am explaining.
