Child & Adolescent Psychology Service
Children and their families can encounter a whole range of behavioural and emotional problems for which professional support can help.
At Hampshire & Surrey Psychology Children’s clinic we recognise that childhood and adolescence may not always be easy for young people or their families. When difficulties do arise it may be that they, and you, need a little extra help to get through. If your child or teenagers difficulties start interfering with their life, or with family life, professional help can make all the difference.
We provide a high quality assessment, counselling and therapy service to assist in easing psychological distress and promoting emotional well-being in children ranging from preschool to late teens/young adult and their families. We work in a collaborative manner, working with families to gain a full understanding of the difficulties and determine the most effective way forward. This may involve one-to-one sessions with children or young people; sessions where parents attend with their child/children; family sessions; or group sessions where young people or families with similar concerns work together to find solutions.
Our approach is flexible and adapted to the needs of the individual or family.
