Immigration Assessment


Are you struggling emotionally from trauma experienced in your country of origin?

Do you require a psychological evaluation as part of your refugee claim?


At McDowall Counselling & Consulting Group, we can provide psychological evaluations to clients who are pursuing a refugee claim. Refugees are a particularly vulnerable population, having escaped persecution or traumatic events and are attempting to restore their lives in a new and unfamiliar place. We recognize the difficulties and the lasting effects of these experiences, and provide a safe, non-judgmental space to conduct psychological evaluations. By screening for anxiety, depression, and trauma, we create thorough reports regarding the risks of deportation. We can also help connect you with other culturally-specific support services to help you navigate the process, and we understand the need for and accept the use of translators while conducting these evaluations.
