Our consultation service offers a wide range of advice and consultation to parents, school staff, and other adults working with children. Psychologist advice can be given in the areas of child development, education, special learning, emotional and behaviour management, social and communication needs.
A psychological assessment is a confidential investigation to gather information from variety of course in a range of settings in order to determine underlying diagnosis, if any, or to conceptualize symptoms, difficulties faced by a child. Information gathered from others may be supplemented by approaches including classroom observation, analysis of work, questionnaires, curriculum-based assessment and use of recognised assessment tools. Assessment may involve parents, carers and teachers as well as children and young people. The aim of assessment is to inform interventions to support, understand the child and young people and thus help remove barriers to learning or delays in development. It highlights strengths and difficulties, so that the child can be better supported or moved forward.

Psychological Intervention are support strategies that aim to change behaviour and support people in their behaviour, emotions, psychological well-being, life skills, social skills, communication and academic and occupational functioning. Interventions are carefully designed with the child’s needs in mind after a detailed assessment of his or her needs. Interventions should be evidence-based and evaluated from time to time to maintain its effectiveness.
We offer training on a wide range of matters relating to special learning, behaviour, and child development. As psychologist, we endeavour to maintain regular and continuous professional development to keep up to date with current research and developments, as this will ensure that what we teach is evidenced-based and clinically effective.
The goal is to integrate research with psychological theory and practice as well as to use data gathered from our own service to guide practice.
