Who you will work with

"It was such an immense relief to contact you and encounter a system (both administrative and clinical) that was straightforward, responsive and caring."

 

We understand that this is a very stressful time for everyone.

We want to support you and work with you to improve the situation.

We make no judgements. We listen to you and your child. We make absolutely sure we understand what is going on. Remember, you are not alone. This is a safe place. We are here to support and care for you all. We are child psychiatrists. This means we have a medical degree which allows us to prescribe medication (if appropriate) as well as delivering therapy.

Our team are professional, friendly and approachable. We are here to answer your concerns. Do get in touch for an initial chat to see how we can help you and your family.
