YOUNG PEOPLE & THEIR FAMILIES

Child Therapist
Child Psychologist

We support young people with a range of mental health and neurodevelopment difficulties including:

 

Attachment and separation anxiety

Difficulties regulating feelings such as anger

Low mood

Sleep problems

Soiling/encopresis

Phobias

Eating difficulties ('fussy eating' not eating disorders as an MDT approach is usually best)

Behavioural difficulties

ADHD/ADD

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Bullying and academic difficulties

Anxiety, OCD, obsessions and worries

Test and performance anxiety

Trauma and PTSD

Our approach usually involves a mix of direct work with the young people (dependent on their age) and work with parents(s) for indirect sessions for psychoeducation, to formulate and understand the child's difficulties, and to develop strategies to support them. Where needed we also liaise with school and other people in their support network. We will often suggest books and online resources to help alongside the work in sessions.

We work 1:1 with young people in creative ways using talking, drawing, storytelling, videos and books as are appropriate to their age and interests. Some examples of these are below:
