SERVICES FOR SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES

We work in schools and colleges across Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex to support the learning and development of students with a range of additional needs. 

Any work completed in a school or college is discussed in detail with staff at the outset to make sure we deliver the best service possible. 

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