We all work with children and young people and their families around their physical and emotional wellbeing. The team is made up of Clinical Psychologists and Children's Wellbeing Practitioners (CWPs).
A Clinical Psychologist is trained in a number of talking therapies with people of all different ages. They also provide complex assessments (including cognitive assessments) and group work.
We are highly trained professionals who work with children, young people and their families to help with a number of difficulties related to their health and physical wellbeing. For example:
We like to think about the whole person and not just the condition they have. We provide talking therapies e.g. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, behavioural therapy, attachment focussed therapy, trauma focussed therapy, Compassion Focussed therapy and tailor them to meet your goals. We also provide assessments (including cognitive assessments or attachment assessments) and group work (see below more information on the Circle of Security).
A CWP has specific Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions they can offer to children aged from 7 -18.
