Family therapy

Most families experience serious difficulties sometimes. If it feels like family relationships are suffering and you are no longer sure what to do for the best or family members seem stuck in repeating hurtful patterns or behaviour, family therapy can help. It enables family members to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely and to understand each other's experiences and views, appreciate each other's needs, build on family strengths and make useful changes in their relationships and their lives. Sometimes it does not take much to help a family free up their strengths: sometimes the difficulties are more complex and the families may need longer to find solutions that work for them. Family therapy can help child and adolescent behaviour problems, couple relationship difficulties, illness and disability in the family, separation and divorce and step family life, fostering, adoption and kinship care.

Caroline is happy to do home visits with parents with young children, children with disabilities or with twins and multiple births.

Child and adolescent psychotherapy

Is about understanding the complex emotional lives of children, young people and families. It is based on the psychoanalytic approach, which seeks to look below the surface of human relationships. Child and adolescent psychotherapists assess and treat infants, children and young people and work with their parents, families and the networks surrounding them. Therapists are trained to carefully observe a child or young person and respond to what they might be communicating through their behaviour and play. Child and adolescent psychotherapists may see children and young people individually or with other family members. They also apply their framework of thinking to work with parents, families and carers and to training and supporting other professionals who work with children, young people and families to encourage a deeper understanding of the child's perspective.

Occupational Therapy

Sometimes children and young people can struggle with the day to day things that they do at school, home and at play. This can affect their confidence, their ability to succeed at school and their relationships with others. Occupational Therapy can help children and young people develop their skills and confidence.
The Paediatric Occupational Therapist will make an assessment and then, if needed, work with you and your child or young person. This may be to do with activities such as:

  • Dressing, eating, toileting;
  • School skills such as attention, pencil and scissor skills;
  • Play and social skills;
  • Sensory needs such as touch and balance;
  • Fine motor and gross motor movement abilities;
  • Emotional and behavioural needs.

Our fees are 55 per hour for child, adolescent and family therapy.
