Psychology

The psychology service we offer is unique due to our multi-disciplinary approach.

Young people work with a range of psychologists, including clinical psychologists, educational psychologists, neuropsychologists, assistant psychologists and play specialists.

The team aims to make a difference to the lives of young people, helping each individual succeed to the best of their abilities, improve their quality of life and future prospects.

This is achieved by working in collaboration, with other professionals and the parents and young people.

Cognitive and adaptive skills are assessed and the psychology team provides advice on the young person’s learning development and needs.

The team also reviews emotional and psychological wellbeing and as well as behaviour for those young people who may have behavioural issues.

Regular contact with the family or carers is very important. The team aims to keep in contact with parents through family meetings and telephone calls. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to contact the department to discuss any concerns and provide feedback on our input.

Our therapy teams work together to ensure young people receive a holistic service, tailored to their individual needs.
