Work with Children

Our practitioners are all CRB checked and meet the ethical standards and requirements for working with children.

We know that parents seek to understand the mental health of their children with more clarity, so that they can help and support them through life. It is our belief that the more parents understand their children, the more support they are able to offer.

We strive to provide a compassionate and effective response to your anxiety.

Sometimes, parents are so emotionally involved with their children that it is hard to have clarity in an emotional situation. We have spent many years researching and understanding this dynamic. This is why we feel confident in our ability to offer a service which firstly makes an accurate diagnosis of the problem, and then follows that up with a detailed therapeutic plan to support the child towards good mental health and wellbeing.

We will always advise you about referring children on to other services for further assessment and diagnosis where necessary.
