Individual help for children and young people

Our services for individual children usually begin with an educational psychotherapy assessment.  We use cognitive and projective tools to enable insight into emotional difficulties that are impacting on learning.  The assessment package runs over a six week period and comprises:

  • family meeting
  • classroom observation
  • four one-to-one one hour sessions with the child
  • assessment report
  • implementation meeting

The assessment report, for staff and parents, makes links between behaviour, learning issues and the child’s emotional experience.  Clear practical advice and recommendations are offered for school staff and parents.  Please contact us for further details.
