Following an initial assessment we will agree on a treatment approach that will be designed to meet your individual needs. Psychologists are trained in a variety of different ways of working so a programme of therapy can be offered which will be most helpful to you and your child. The nature of the difficulties will indicate whether the intervention will be most helpful if carried out directly with your child, with parents and caregivers, or with the whole family.
