Child Psychology

Our Clinical Psychologists have specialist training and experience in working with children, adolescents and families.

Twenty per cent of UK children aged 1 to 15 experience a mental health disorder in any given year. The likelihood of experiencing difficulties with emotional wellbeing increase as children reach adolescence. Our Child Psychologists are trained in child development, neuroscience and a host of evidence-based psychological therapies (e.g. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Theraplay) that meet the needs of each individual child.

We also provide training, consultation and supervision to schools, social care and other allied organisations (see ‘other services’ tab for details).
