Did you oxygenate the wort? How much yeast did you pitch?
It has only been 1 week, it is going a bit slow, but there is still time. I wouldn't take it off the yeast cake yet, especially if there is still fermenting to do. I am the no secondary brewer as well.
Did you oxygenate the wort prior to pitching your yeast. Was this an all grain batch, mini mash, or extract?
You could try rousing the yeast up a bit from the bottom of the fermenter, give the fermentor a little tilt. That try and avoid any type of splashing. Also keep try and keep the fermentation temperatures steady, do you have temperature control?
