(Back to) Overview

What is it?

  • The Psych Check isn’t an assessment as such, it is more a way of gaining insight into how you believe you are currently functioning. A Chimp Management mentor will go through a questionnaire containing 46 questions with you. You will have the opportunity to discuss each question with your mentor and they will also prompt and challenge you as necessary, to help you be able to accurately rate where you think you are on each question.
  • Your scores will then be added up across the 7 aspects of your psychological well-being. Your scores will then be presented back to you a week later in the form of a report that is sent to you. The report will outline what your scores mean in real terms and how they relate to your day to day functioning. The report will also outline plans for working on areas that need improvement and how you could go about working on those changes with practical plans.
  • You have a choice of working on the areas yourself using Professor Steve Peters’ book The Chimp Paradox, or by booking follow-up sessions with one of our psychological skills mentors. The mentors will then work with you to help you to develop the areas highlighted in your report.

Who is it for?

The Psych Check is suitable for anyone wanting to gain insight into how well they are functioning in terms of their psychological well-being and their quality of life.

What are the benefits of doing the Psych Check?

  • Completing the Psych Check is an excellent way to gain insight into how you believe you are currently functioning with regards to your emotional and psychological well-being
  • People who have completed the Psych Check have commented that it has made them think about and reflect aspects of their emotional well-being and quality of life that they had never considered before. In turn this has provided them with the opportunity to make positive changes in their lives
  • Successful people spend time reflecting on how they are doing and make changes to improve areas that need attention. Completing the Psych Check is a great way to start your journey towards improved psychological functioning and an enhanced quality of life
  • As well as identifying areas to develop and improve, the Psych Check will help you to identify the areas that you are currently working on well and are happy with, which can be a confidence boost in itself
