Mental health problems can affect people of any age, including children and young adults. It can be a challenging time for both the individual suffering from mental health condition and their wider family. Our child psychiatry service is expertly tailored to meet the needs of each of our clients and delivered by a fully qualified medical doctor with special expertise in both diagnosing and treating mental illnesses.

It’s not just this we take into consideration when working with children from age two upwards, our treatment and strategies are tailored to give each child the strategies and support that they need, reflecting their age and maturity.

Your Child’s Initial Assessment
Seeing a psychiatrist for the first time can be a daunting prospect for anyone, especially if they are too young to fully understand what is happening. Throughout your child’s first assessment and in subsequent sessions we strive to make them feel as comfortable as possible. You may also be feeling nervous too when you attend the appointment too but our professional, experienced team will help to put you at ease.
The assessment will focus on understanding your child’s background, general health, and issues they may be dealing with. It will also be used to establish a relationship with your child, allowing us to provide a treatment plan that best suits their needs.

Sometimes when you approach us you may not be aware of what the condition is, just that something is wrong or that your child is struggling. Our team have the knowledge to diagnose a range of conditions that affect those aged between two and 18, allowing the treatment needed to me accessed.
