Child Services

Sometimes as parents and guardians we can become concerned about our children’s emotional, social, and academic needs. Educational professionals may have expressed concerns or suggested that a little further investigation may be warranted. In my role, I am here to work with you and your child to explore these concerns. As an educational and child psychologist, I aim to identify your child’s strengths and also identify the support they require to be their beautiful best self.


Cognitive Assessment

This is a standardised and organised test used to evaluate a variety of cognitive processes such as language, problem-solving, and reasoning. It also derives a full-scale intelligent quotient (FSIQ). This assessment provides insight into a child’s developmental level.

Attainment/Learning Assessment

This explores how children and young people are doing in areas of academic school work. It identifies areas of strength and areas whereby a child or young person would benefit from additional support.

Adaptive Interview

This interview looks at real-life skills such as the ability to undertake certain behaviours and practice certain skills.


Screeners are available for Autism, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD) also known as Dyspraxia.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

This evidence-based therapeutic therapy is an effective treatment for various issues such as anxiety, depression, substance misuse, relationship difficulties and emotional and wellbeing issues. CBT involves working with thinking patterns to change behaviours. Individual sessions last 50 minutes and clients may be asked to undertake work outside of the session. Sessions are available in person or online.
