Children and Young People’s Psychology Services
Our Clinical Psychologists working with children, young people and their families have specialist training to help young people and their families understand and manage a broad range of mental health difficulties.
Through a comprehensive assessment, spending time talking to you and your child, the psychologist will work to understand the problem, what might be contributing to the difficulties and think with you about the most appropriate package of support. This support may involve individual sessions with your child, sessions with the whole family, and/or working in collaboration with schools and other services in your child’s network.
In addition, our therapists can also provide school observations, home visits, or specialist cognitive assessments as part of a larger assessment process. Due to their specialist training, our Child Psychologists are able to draw on a range of therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Systemic Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy, whilst incorporating creativity in the therapeutic process.

- Low mood
- Anxiety and Panic
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
