After careful assessment, we aim to develop an understanding of the problems, to set shared goals and to make a plan for moving forward.
The type of intervention that will be best for you and your child will depend on the difficulties you are experiencing. Our approach often combines individual work alongside family work.
We may support your child and/or your family to develop ways of coping with the things that are difficult. We offer talking therapies and, if necessary, medication. Where appropriate, we will liaise with your child’s health team, school, social worker, GP, and any other relevant services, so that they can provide appropriate support. Sometimes a combination of approaches works best.
How long we are involved for will depend on the needs of your child and family. Sometimes we refer families on to another team if we think this would be helpful, this would always be discussed with you.
