We are currently offering three types of appointment, detailed below. As we are in the process of developing this service, please feel free to contact us to ask about other services or specific types of treatment you may be looking for. If we cannot undertake a piece of work ourselves, we may know someone who can. We are also able to offer supervision, consultation and training to other professionals and staff groups. Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further details.

We have a brief telephone conversation with every family prior to booking any appointment in order to ascertain that we are the right service for your child and to discuss which type of appointment would best meet your needs.

Assessment appointments - £200

Assessment appointments are up to 1 ½ hours. Usually we will come to see you at home and meet with your child and yourselves (parents/carers). At the end of this appointment we will discuss your options for treatment, if this seems necessary. If we feel that your child’s needs can be met within the NHS or via local voluntary services, we will inform you of this. It is necessary to have an assessment appointment prior to any 'treatment appointment' from our service.

You will also receive a letter summarising our findings from the assessment and outlining our recommendations, which you may find useful when approaching other organisations or your GP.

Treatment Appointments - £100

Treatment appointments are up to 1 hour and will involve parents/carers and/or your child. If you opt for treatment in our service, you will be made aware of the likely number of treatment sessions that will be needed before you begin. Again these appointments can be at home or in a clinic.

Consultation Appointments - £150

Consultation appointments are up to 1 ½ hours. These appointments are usually with parents alone. The first hour or so is spent gathering assessment information, and the rest of the time is allocated to a discussion about how to begin making changes for your child. This may also include directing you to other services that may be helpful to your family. Consultation appointments are intended to be "stand alone" appointments, with no follow up, although you could book another consultation appointment at a later date.

You will also receive a letter summarising our findings from the assessment and detailing our suggested plan of action.

These appointments are best used if you are unsure about the type of professional, or service, that would be best suited to help with your child’s difficulties; if you think the problem is relatively manageable but would like some pointers; or if you would like to try out an appointment with a psychologist to see whether our way of working suits you and your family.
