Child and Adolescents Mental Health

Our experienced Clinical Psychologists working with children, young people and their families have specialist training to help children understand and manage a broad range of mental health difficulties.

Through a comprehensive evaluation, the psychologist will work to understand the difficulty, what might be contributing to the difficulties and think with you about the most appropriate mode of support. This support may involve individual sessions with the child, sessions with the whole family, and/or working in collaboration with schools and other services in the child’s network.

In addition, our therapists also provide school observations, home visits, or specialist cognitive assessments as part of a larger assessment process. Our Psychologists are able to draw on a range of therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Cogntive Processing Therapy, Systemic Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy, Play Therapy and others.
