Assessment

Your first meeting with us will be an assessment session, which will last up to 90 minutes. You will meet two clinicians, with different areas of expertise, who will work jointly to gain a thorough understanding of your concerns and needs. Following the assessment we will make recommendations about whether therapy could be beneficial, and if so which therapeutic approach would be most effective. We may recommend a single therapeutic approach, such as individual sessions for the child/young person or parents, or we may suggest a package of care, such as individual sessions alongside family sessions and/or meetings with a psychiatrist.

Therapy

We offer a range of specialist therapies which you can read about here. Therapy sessions last for 50 minutes. The frequency and duration of the therapy varies, depending on your needs and the type of therapy being offered.

Multidisciplinary approach

We operate a ‘multidisciplinary team’ (MDT) approach to assessing and treating child and adolescent mental health. Within our team we each have different specialisms and areas of expertise. By working together, we are able to look at your particular needs and concerns from a range of perspectives, and offer therapeutic care tailored to your individual requirements.

Confidentiality

All information shared with us during assessment and therapy is strictly confidential and will not be shared with anyone else unless we have concerns about anyone’s immediate safety. We may recommend that we talk to or meet with other agencies such as schools or GPs, but we would always discuss this with you first. You can find detailed information about our data privacy policy here.
