Educational Psychology

Our Therapeutic Educational Psychology clinic is able to provide bespoke assessment and intervention planning for children whose difficulties affect both school and home.

The Clinic works to promote the following areas for children:

  • Emotional wellbeing and positive behaviour
  • Positive educational outcomes
  • Emotional security in the relationship between children and their parents
  • Positive parenting and improved confidence in parenting
  • Positive experiences of learning and being at school
  • Effective home-school-network liaison
  • Empowerment and confidence in health and education staff
  • Building resilience in children and their parents
  • Assessment of children’s learning, emotional and behavioural needs in order to make effective changes in the way the child is understood and supported.

We support children and families to achieve these hopes through a range of ways:

Professional support in the form of supervision, consultation, training to SENCO’s, Inclusion Managers, Head teachers, class teachers and teaching assistants.

Parental support in the form of consultations and advice

Child support in the form of direct work with children

We take a systemic and holistic approach to working with any child. All new referrals are first offered a consultation in order to decide, in partnership with the parent and child, the best way forward. We are able to offer home visits, clinic based appointments and school visits to create a cohesive and joined up service for the child. When helpful, our Educational Psychologist will also invite other professionals within the team to join the work, so that we can use a team approach to support the child.

We are also keen to provide an Educational Psychology Support Service for children who are being home-educated; and we specialise in offering Educational Psychology to children with a diagnosis of ASC, and to children who are Looked After or Adopted.

The clinic can be funded by self-paying parents; schools, Local Education Authorities or Children’s Services. Increasingly our interventions are being funded by Pupil Premium.

Children, families and professionals bring a range of difficulties to our Educational Psychology Clinic. The topics have included:

Transition Loss and bereavement School refusal Separation anxiety at school drop off Nurture Attachment difficulties Trauma and its impact on learning Emotional and behavioural problems Family conflict and its impact at school
