Children’s psychological wellbeing practitioner

At your first appointment, we will have a discussion with you and your parents or carers about your worries and difficulties. We will work with you to find the best way to help you.

If we think this is the right place for you, we will match you with a children’s psychological wellbeing practitioner who will work with you short-term on your specific goals.
