Psychological Therapy Services for Children and Young People

Our aim at The Children’s Rooms is to provide children and young people with the best psychological care possible, from highly specialised and experienced psychologists and therapists. All of our team have been specifically trained in helping children and young people and have many years’ experience of providing this for them. They share a love of what they do.
Watching your child or teenager struggling with difficult emotions is difficult for any parent. It can be daunting to think about them needing psychological help. At The Children’s Rooms we do our utmost to help parents access the most appropriate type of help for their child, as easily and quickly as possible.

The Problems We Deal With
The sorts of issues our team deal with include anxiety and panic, depression, OCD, phobias, anger, and bereavement. We see children who have behavioural problems, are school refusers, or have constipation, soiling and bedwetting problems. We help children who have pain and fatigue disorders manage their conditions more effectively.
We have a team of professionals who deal with children and young people with eating disorders, which includes Clinical Psychologists and a specialist Dietitian.
Children who have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are often seen at The Children’s Rooms where our psychologists help manage the difficulties caused by their disorders. We are also able to provide assessments for these disorders – please see Assessment of ASD, ADHD.
Contacting Us
If you would like to book an appointment please phone, text or email us. Please also contact us if you have any questions and are unsure of whether The Children’s Rooms is for you. Your enquiries will always be dealt with by a therapist who will advise you. She will answer any questions about The Children’s Rooms and find the most appropriate psychologist for your child to see. She will normally be able to offer you an appointment within a week or two of your first phone call. We do our utmost to provide appointments out of school hours, including both evenings and weekends.

How It Works
The first appointment with the psychologist is an assessment where you will be asked about your child’s home and family circumstances, their developmental history, school and education, and whatever the current problems are. The purpose of this is to reach an understanding of the difficulties that you and your child are experiencing and to develop a plan to resolve them. You will be given an idea of the sort of treatment that will be offered and the number of sessions you may need. If your child is a teenager it may be that they wish to see the psychologist alone; the psychologist will discuss this with you.
The treatment may involve the psychologist seeing the child alone, with you as parent/s, or as a family. The psychologist will decide this depending on your child’s individual needs. Some parents come to see the Children's Rooms without the child ever attending. This is often the case with small children, but sometimes older children too. It may also be that your child is resistant to the idea of coming for therapy or that you simply feel that you would like the psychologist to advise you on how to deal with your child’s difficulties.
We do our utmost to ensure that children feel comfortable and supported while they are at The Children’s Rooms and many report to us that they love coming to see their psychologist.

We are providers for all of the health insurance companies.
