Hobbies & Interests
I recently attended a video appointment for an adult ASD assessment with Dr Hollie Hearfield and I cannot recommend enough. She was incredibly friendly and easy to talk to whilst remaining professional. I was quite anxious going into the appointment as I didn’t really know what to expect however this anxiety was quickly eased. I felt completely heard, and nothing I said was dismissed. I was able to express any of my challenges and thoughts and I felt my voice was completely heard by Dr Hearfield. I would highly recommend Berkeley Psychiatrists to any interested party!
