One of our specialist areas and interests is child and adolescent mental health. This ranges from individual work with children/adolescents or working with a child/adolescent and a parent/carer.
Children can struggle with many issues in life including death of a significant adult, sibling or friend, separation or divorce, bullying, anxieties/fears and phobias and trauma. Children, however, also have the resilience to get back on track quite quickly and therefore it is always best to seek advice and help as soon as you feel your child is not coping in life as well as they might. This might manifest as low mood, sleep difficulties, social withdrawal, excessively clingy, tearful, tantrums regression in their development or being fearful and avoiding certain situations. We can offer after school appointments in order to avoid a child or young person missing valuable time off school as well as accommodaing parents working hours.
