What can Child and Adolescent Psychologists help with?
Psychology is the study of the human mind – the way we think, act and behave. Child and adolescent Psychologists use different therapeutic methods to help young people overcome their problems, making life easier and getting things back on track.
Many of our Psychologists and Psychotherapists do similar work, but often Psychologists’ work is more involved with thought patterns and Psychotherapists often work with past feelings and emotions. You might not know who your child or teenager should see, you just know they need help. Don’t worry, our clinical advisors can help advise on what your options are and what might suit your child’s needs best.
What can Psychology help with?
Some of the common disorders that our Psychologists can help with include:
- Anxiety, phobias and OCD
- Educational Assessments
- Child ADHD
- Autistic spectrum disorders
- Bipolar affective disorder
- Depression and Treatment Resistant Depression
- Eating disorders and body image issues
- Personality Disorders
- Brain injuries
What to expect from a child and adolescent psychology appointment
Before the session, you may be sent questionnaires to complete and your Psychologist may ask for school reports to help them understand a more complete picture. There may be psychometric tests to complete before or during the sessions, these are nothing to worry about and the aim is to get a good understanding of the areas your child is struggling with.
We will talk you through all these elements when you book your child’s appointment and you can ring us at any stage with any questions you have.
The number, frequency and duration of the psychology appointments will differ depending on the reasons for seeing a Psychologist. For instance, CBT can be weekly and may involve ‘homework’ to embed learning between sessions. Educational assessments could be a one off, perhaps with a recommendation for some further therapy sessions.
