Children’s Therapeutic Services

Reflections Psychology Services offers Therapeutic Services for children aged 5 and above.

Our child psychologist is available to work with children with a wide range of difficulties, including anxiety, phobias, depression, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and behavioural difficulties. At Reflections Psychology, we use fun, engaging activities and games to encourage children to talk, learn, and explore new ways of coping. Sessions include both parent/carer and child, sometimes together, sometimes separate, as we understand that it is important for you to be a part of your child’s therapy so you can support and encourage them at home and in the world. However, children are also offered a degree of confidentiality for themselves as well. This helps to build trust, and gives them a space to talk about things they may not be ready to share otherwise.

For children under the age of 10, the first appointment will always be parent only. This is because the first session is for gathering information about your child’s development, history, and current situation, as well as your parenting style – young kids just get bored listening to this, and we don’t want to make that our first impression! Older children may be OK to be a part of this conversation, unless you would prefer for them not to be present as it can sometimes be unpleasant for children to hear their parents talking about their difficulties.

If you would like  more information about our child services, please don’t hesitate to contact us! Every child is different, and we’re happy to discuss and tailor therapy to their individual needs
