A Guide to Accessing Studio 3 Clinical Services and Training

Whether you are an individual looking to access clinical or training services for yourself, a family member looking to access our services for a person you support, or an organisation thinking about working with us, this is a helpful guide to what support we can offer and how to access it.

At Studio 3 Training Systems and Clinical Services, we offer a range of supports, advice, and input from our experienced clinical and training teams. Whilst some people who come to us for training or counselling know exactly what they are looking for, others may be unsure specifically which service best suits their needs.

That is why we operate a referral system, whereby we take details from individuals, supporters, or organisations about their situation and needs, and our clinical and training teams will then decide how we believe our services can best be of assistance in each individual scenario. If you are unsure how we can help you, an individual you support, or your organisation or service, submitting a referral is the best way to visualise the pathways of support available to you.

Clinical Services

If you are seeking clinical and psychological support, guidance, or intervention from the Studio 3 team, our team of clinicians will review your referral. If you have a specific type of support in mind, or are seeking guidance, our team of clinicians can work with you to determine the appropriate pathway of support for you or the person you are referring. Our approach to clinical services, such as diagnostic assessments and therapy, is outlined in our Neurodiversity Pathways Approach, a term we use to illustrate the many overlapping and distinct pathways of support available to individuals, families, and organisations. This can include therapeutic and psychological interventions, assessments (we conduct a wide range of assessments, including diagnostic assessments (e.g. ASD, ADHD), psychological assessments, service specifications, and ‘360° Assessments’), clinical consultations, and more. We would be happy to talk with you about the options available to you, which are outlined here in more detail.

Training and Coaching

We also provide training and coaching for individuals, services, schools, and families depending on need. We can also develop and provide bespoke training and coaching interventions for staff teams, organisations, families and services in order to build knowledge, skills, and resilience. Studio 3 Training Systems specialises in Low Arousal interventions and non-aversive practices. You can see what training we have available here, and our training team is happy to advise you if you would like to explore what training we could provide, or discuss bespoke training options.

Making a Referral

The first step is to contact us. When you make a referral, we will need information about who you are, who the person you’re referring is (you can also make a self-referral), and what area you’re based in so we can assign a clinician nearby and assess logistically how we would carry out the work. You will also need to summarise to the best of your ability what the presenting issues are and, if possible, what kind of input/support you’re looking for. A member of our referral team (clinical or training) will be in touch to either get more information, or confirm that your referral is being processed.

Sometimes we may need to do a remote consultation meeting. There will be no charge for this and the purpose will be to get more information in certain areas in order to proceed. This is more likely when there are questions of risk, an MDT is already involved, or we need to determine the scope of our involvement.

The second step is where your referral will be processed. We have a referral review meeting every fortnight where the lead clinicians discuss and determine what potential pathways of support we could offer. Based on this, a proposal is put together and this will be sent back to the person making the referral for their review. The proposal will outline how to proceed, and will require the recipient to reply in confirmation or denial to the proposal. If accepted, appropriate contracting will be outlined and then work can start.

1) Submit and enquiry/referral through our website or by email. 2) Our clinical team will review your referral at our fortnightly review meeting. 3) A proposal will be sent out to you outlining the suggested work. 4) You must respond with your acceptance of the proposal within 3 months. 5) We aim to begin work within 6 weeks of proposal agreement.
