Clinical Psychologists are trained to work with a range of therapeutic approaches. As a result, I am able to draw from many models of treatment in our work, including behaviour management, cognitive behaviour therapy, solution-focused therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR and others.
Through a detailed process of assessment and formulation, we work together to select the most appropriate therapy or intervention for your child/family. It is common practice for Clinical Psychologists will draw from a range of therapeutic approaches when dealing with a child and their family.
When best practice or the NICE guidelines for the NHS indicate, treatment can involve co-working with other therapists, or recommendations for another therapist.
Treatment appointments last 50 minutes and will involve the child, and/or their parents/carers. We work with children and their families in a variety of ways. With younger children, it is usual for us to work mainly through parents/carers, and with older children, to work mainly with the young person/teenager.
If you opt for treatment in SCCPP, I will usually agree on a fixed number of sessions and a review, before you begin, and discuss the likely number of sessions needed (although this can be hard to predict).
Treatment Appointments are charged at £100 - £120 per session.
The fee range reflects the way in which sessions are funded, and the location. The bottom range is for privately funded work, online. For home visits and meetings in clinic, and for families paying through PMI (Private Medical Insurance), rates increase – please see the fees page for details.
