We help children, young people and their families
in order to support healthy and happy development.
Childhood is a time of rapid change, growth and development and for all of us there are many bumps in the road towards adulthood. Some children progress smoothly, dealing with problems as they arise and using the support of their family and friends to get by. For others the road is more difficult, with more hazards and ups and downs. We help children to overcome the hazards and help parents to support their children to be happy and fulfilled.
Whether it be extreme toddler tantrums, sleep problems, anxiety, depression or eating difficulties we work to equip parents, children and young people with the insight and skills required to work through these issues.
We specialise in working with children, young people and their families, from toddlerhood right through to the transition to early adulthood.
As Clinical Psychologists our skills enable us to offer interventions for a number of mental health difficulties associated with childhood, including but not limited to:
- Behavioural problems including issues with anger and aggression
- Low mood
- Low self esteem
- Anxiety/excessive worries and fears
- Obsessive compulsive disorder
- Eating disorders
- Oppositional behaviours
- Sexual Abuse
We also offer assessments of:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Attentional disorders such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Cognitive strengths and difficulties (such as difficulties in learning)
- Forensic assessments for court
Our profession is dedicated to developing and adhering to a robust evidence base in its work with young people. To that end, the approaches that we offer are underpinned by sound psychological theory, supported by evidence and draw from the National Institute of Clinical Excellence Guidelines (NICE).
