Who can we help?

 
We offer Clinical Psychology services for children and young people up to the age of 18.  Difficulties can arise for children for various reasons.  For example, moving into a new stage of physical or emotional development, or times of transition and change; for example starting school, moving house etc.  In addition, during times of distress children and young people can present wth a variety of symptoms as a way of communicating this distress.
