Parent Consultation Service  

If you are concerned about your child feeling very sad or angry, worried or depressed, it can sometimes be helpful to talk things over with a qualified professional.

 

Therapeutic Consultation/ Detailed Assessment Service

Detailed report can be produced upon request for an additional cost.   Most people find the assessment process very therapeutic.

 

Family Support Service

The aim of this service is to provide a calm and non-judgemental setting, in which the therapist invites everyone to think about the troubles family members are experiencing.  Creating a space to consider one’s feelings as well as family members’ help to find more constructive ways of getting along together.

 

Brief Supportive Psychotherapy

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Children and adolescents with a range of mental health problems including severe anxieties, social, emotional, behavioural problems and developmental difficulties are offered psychoanalytic psychotherapy.  The parents of children in therapy also receive support alongside children’s therapies.

 

Parent-Infant Psychotherapy

Helping families who might be struggling to find their feet in their relationship with their infant(s) aged 0-12 months.  Parents are seen in one-to-one sessions with their baby to talk about their concerns.  Reflecting on what the baby is trying to communicate and how the parents would like to respond is the core of the work.

 

Late Stages of Pregnancy Support

Counselling sessions with the prospective mother enable quick, lasting, positive changes which in turn support  the infant’s neuropsychological development for a healthy start.  This service is sometimes followed by parent-infant psychotherapy.
