SERVICES FOR FAMILIES

We are happy to accept referrals directly from parents seeking support for their children, and who go to school in Suffolk, Norfolk or Essex. If you are concerned about your child's progress with learning, or their emotional well-being we would be happy to discuss your needs and what we can offer. 

We are also happy to accept referrals directly from students, if 18 years old or over. If you have concerns about how you are progressing in school, college or university, or about your mental health and emotional well-being, please contact us to discuss how we might be able to help. 

CBT

Examples of work commissioned by parents and students we have carried out recently

An in depth individual assessment to identify a year 5 pupil’s strengths and barriers to learning to inform recommendations for support in school.

An in depth individual assessment with a college student to investigate a possible specific learning difficulty and provide advice on developing independent study skills. 

An in depth investigation of a year 7 pupil's literacy skills in order to provide advice about home support to develop spelling strategies.

Individual CBT sessions to support the self-esteem and confidence of a year 8 pupil with dyslexia. 

Individual CBT sessions to support a young person experiencing anxiety and claustrophia. 

In general we like to conduct work in close liaison with schools and colleges to ensure a better outcome for students. For this reason assessment and consultations are held in schools and colleges, unless in exceptional circumstances. 

Before carrying out any work we will discuss your requirements in detail with you to ensure that we understand what is needed from the involvement of our psychologist, and that you receive the best service possible. We require a signed consent form and a completed questionnaire to ensure that we have written permission and adequate background information before conducting any work.  

In order to complete work commissioned by parents or an individual we may complete one or more of the following activities

Gather background information from parents and/or students. 

Contact the school, college or university to discuss any concerns they may have and the support already in place. 

Carry out an observation in school or college, where relevant

Meet with individuals to carry out direct assessments of strengths and needs. 

Liaise with other professionals that are involved. 

Record assessment information, conclusions and recommendations in a detailed report. 

Carry out consultations or individual therapy sessions face to face or via Skype. 

If you would like to discuss the possibility of one of our psychologists working with you or your child please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss you requirements further.
