Child Psychology

Parents and carers want the best for their children and when there are difficulties it can be hard to find the help and support that is needed.

At Derbyshire Psychology we work in the first instance with parents and carers to gain an understanding of yourchilds needs and to explore how best to understand and support them.

From the initial assessment a path of support will be discussed and this will inform us as to what future sessions will look like moving.

In some instances it might be necessary to observer your child in the school or home setting and in some cases it may be that there is not a need to see your child at all. Much of this is dependent on age as with younger children it is often best that the majority of the work is done with the parents.
